CXG2 Pilot waypoint

Post by maartenvd84 » Thu Jan 25, 2018 2:18 pm

Hi,

Two questions with regards to flight planning.
1) Can we directly insert coordinates in the FPL, or do we always need to pass via a pilot waypoint?
2) What's the meaning of the LSK3 options in the screenshot below? I figured out you can enter 'P/B/D' but no clue what it means... :lol:

Kind regards,

I did not define support for random lat/lon input. Not something you should need in this day and age.

Dear Ed,

there seems to be at least some support for those ‘custom waypoints’ via coordinates as I can enter them in the ‘pilot waypoints’ screen…so the second question of my post remains I think: what’s the usage of those parameters P/B/D or P/B/P/B … ?

Ps: The reason I’m pursuing this is simply because sometimes I have to fly long routes (see one of my previous post viewtopic.php?f=11&t=105 ) which have no intermediate waypoints over the ocean (e.g. trip from ENSB to BGSF).

Thanks.
Maarten

For flights that don't fall within the normal routing (as in no one in the real world flies that way regularly) your best bet is a great circle route. However if you want waypoints, there are still waypoints defined... like 7800N 7620N 7430N 7240N 7050N.

As for PBD... that's place, bearing, distance. You need a waypoint (place) to reference from. It is better to use the NAT waypoints (like above) that are already defined in the database.
