Help creating a CAP

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am trying to plan combat air patrols all over the globe, with the departure and arrival arpt being the same. such as flying from Bagram, WPT, WPT, WPT, bagram. (wpt being waypoint). When I try to do this, FSC9 keeps making a "z" shaped flight pattern rather than a "o" shaped pattern. I hope i have made some kind of sense here lol!! I know it is something obvious I am missing, please help. Also, is there a way to "grab and drag" my map??

Thanks in advance


My specs are

Win7 64

FSC9 ver. 9.2

FSX sp2

What WPTs are you using in your flight plan?

I used


and saw no problem.

I figured out how to do it by setting dep.(oaix) and arr.(oaix) airport first, and then inserting generic waypoints before the arrival airport. Probably not the proper way, but it worked. Did you just look at the map and manually input the waypoints? Also, is there a way to "grab and drag" the map? Thanks FS1TR for the response. I copied your plan and am going to give it a shot, and do some Al Qaida hunting....

Thanks again
