Flight Routing In FS2002

Tue May 28, 2002 9:49 am

Hey guys

can anyone tell me - when you like choose a flight say from London to New York and you do high altitudes and IFR it can come up with some weird routings.

Is there anyway to tell FS2002 what waypoints you want to use?

I tried to fly LAX-HNL and it made the route a big 'Z' ?? Why ??I ended up going GPS direct.

Yeah, I've gotten some wierd routings too. I usually go 'direct,' but you can easily select waypoints by dragging the line to the waypoint. And, you can select and delete waypoints. I usually have to alter the route it gives me.

All I do is edit the PLN files with NOTEPAD. Not that hard at all.

FSNav isn't a good program for crossing the Atlantic and planning the route, get a real aircraft with FMC and program in the NAT Routes, and fly on VATSIM.

I used the FS2k2 flight planner to plan a flight (high altitude airways) from ORD to CDG, and it took me all over Canada, then making a u-turn and fling east 2000 miles to ORD.
