One of my hobbies, is flying Flight simulator. Generally i use the FSflightPlanner to generate the route that i was going to use.
But in real world, the things are a bit different... specially on north Atlantic routing.
I'd like to know if there is an application out there to help to calculate this routes.
I tried FSRoute, but the route from EGLL to KJFK was completely wrong. The route came down near Madeira and then near venezuela and up again to new york... almost 6400 nm...
In north Atlantic, let's say... operating EGLL to KJFK, generally they fly the great circle.
My doubt is... what is the last point before they go direct to the "reentry point" ont he other side of the Atlantic. What are de corridors for Eastbound and Westbound?
How can i make a more real planification of my simulated flights?

Quoting Luisinho (Reply 2): And what about concorde routes? Did it operated normal routes from FL500 to 600 or had "special Concorde" ones?
I noted at the end of the document in the 2nd link in my message (How to Cross the North Atlantic), there is still a section on Concorde operations which may answer some of your questions. It sounds like the procedures are basically the same except for the altitudes and the "cruise climb" procedure.
Also just edited my message to add a simillar document covering Controller procedures. It's now the 3rd link in the first group.
