How do you fly transoceanic? The flightplanner won't calculate transoceanic flights correctly. It sends you all the way to Alaska first. I'm interested in hearing your methods!

You can also use Direct-GPS and create your own flight plan off of that.

I only did one transatlantic flight:

BRU-LAX in LevelD's 767-300, CityBird livery

Those were some long hours, took me almost two hours to set everything up and running, and then a 12 hour flight in realtime...Gotta love it Big grin

CPH-HNL using the LDS 763ER. I landed with only 9% fuel left and I had been crusing at FL370 all the way to save fuel. The flight took 13,5 hours.

I've also done this flight in a 744 and this is when you realise how fast the 744 is compared to the 767. Didn't take more than about 12 hours.

CPH-BKK
CPH-MSP
LHR-YVR
Baghdad (forgot the 3 letter code) to IAD
ATL-CPH
CPH-SIN
CPH-New Delhi
CPH-CPT
CPT-Nairobi
Seychelles to Singapore
Singapore to Sydney
Rio De Janeiro-CPH
AMS-LAX
LAX-AKL

These are the ones that I can remember off-hand

I use this website: http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/

It's free and easy. Just plot the waypoints into the FMC. (You need an aircraft with a fully working FMC to use this method)

I also use Flightaware for some routes (it was a huge help when I did an IAD-SFO Transcon with the LDS 767 in UA OCs). It even works with a few Transatlantic flights as well.
