I've finally figured out how to fly the Concorde in FS9, and am now totally obsessed with it! I use the SSTSIM version which I bought from Flight1 after flying the ProjetMach2 version, which is free. Anyway I was wondering if anyone can aid me in figuring out the best way to flight plan with the INS, since it requires Lat Long for all its coordinates. There are some files on avsim of some concorde INS flight plans, and SSTSIM comes with actual photocopies of the Air France and Speedbird flightplans, including some charter missions. But I'm looking for some help in creating my own runs.
It's actually not that hard at all to program your own waypoints.
Just insert the proper waypoint coordinates into the INS and repeat the 0-9 number when flying along.
And you need off course to calculate your reheat/descent phases etc.
I' am sure the guys at SSTSIM have delivered all you need to compute that.
If you want to operate realistic, use only M1.0 and higher speeds over non populated areas, the best option is over the ocean.
I' am planning to aquire the SSTSIM soon too,
I have the PSS version, but it appears SSTSIM is better!

Yes, I just need help in acquiring the coordinates. I know how to put them in the INS, but I am looking for suggestions on an easier way of planning a trip and getting the lat & long coordinates. When I plan a trip on the FS software, the VORs, waypoints, etc don't show the lat/long coordinates. The only time they do is when I click on them on the map, but once they are in my flight plan, I cannot get the coordinates.
I'm looking for suggestions if there is any good software available on avsim or somewhere.
