Waypoint VOR BCN ( solved )

Recommended Posts

Hi Holger

When creating a flight plan which includes a VOR called BCN the plan does not give me the option to select BCN N41 18 25 E002 06 28

or BCN N51 43 31 W003 15 46

One is at Brecon South Wales the other is near Barcelona Spain.

All other waypoints I have used give me a choice, this one just gives me Brecon South Wales N41 18 25 E 002 06 28.

Hope you will be kind enough to check

Regards

Howard

HI Volker

Sorry for late reply but I was away.

You are correct of course. What I failed to explain was if I copy & paste a flight plan containing BCN For Barcelona area Spain from my VA flight plans it always shows up the track as Brecon in Wales

& does not give me the option to change it to BCN Near Barcelona.

If I am creating a plan using FSC then you are quite correct.

Forgive my previous lack of clarification

Regards

Howard

Hi Howard,

You can not use an external flight with copy and paste, which contains a VOR or NDB or any other navigation aid.

 

The convention for an external flight plan is always:

Departure Intersection Airway  Intersection Airway  Intersection Airway .......  Intersection Destination

 

Example:

EDDH AMLUH M852 POVEL Z16 GALMA T703 LEKMI T105 VAMAS EDDM

 

Please read the manual:

chapter 5.2.2 Airway routes, paragraph Creating a flight plan from an airway route.

 

Regards,

Volker
