strange FPL


Recommended Posts


I 'm flying from CYYR to BIKF,but i got a strange flightplan from FSC.

I have to fly first to the Canary Islands and then north to Keflavik via the west coast of Portugal,France and England.

I had to refuel already,what is the reason,that the flightplan send me over this circuit??

Hi Frans,

The reason is simply that there are no airways across the North Atlantic, so if you plan an IFR airways route, it will wander off around most of the planet!

You might want to read the manual section about North Atlantic Tracks, which goes into more detail on how to use them, but in the case of Iceland, you may be best just going waypoint to waypoint after leaving Canada, as it is north of most of the NATRACKS.
