Hi everyone,

How is the North Atlantic Track System updated in FMS aircraft, since the route system changes daily?

If a transatlantic company route is loaded, do the Track waypoints have to be entered manually? Or does the airline have some way to update the Tracks for all of its aircraft daily?

Also, what is the most commonly used "code" for a track in a flight plan? For example, if a North Atlantic crossing starts at, lets say, SAILE, for a Track W crossing and ends in Shannon (SNN?), would it be something like SAILE.NATW.SNN, or SAILE.TRACW.SNN???

The individual waypoints making up the NAT track must be entered manually as directs (non-airway).

For example 5610N DCT 5720N DCT 5730N etc.....

I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

Thanks Rick767.

So when you load a transatlantic flight company route, what appears between continental exit/entry waypoints?

Talking about flight plane load in the FMC is as said by rick767.
Talking about ATC flight plane the dispatcher fill: SAILE NATW MASIT.
means entry point-track-exit point.

bye bye
