North Atlantic Routing

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or is this route barking? I am trying to fly my PMDG 74F from EGNX to KJFK I decided to plan my own route in Flight Sim Commander using the latest online weather. The route that it gave me to put it kindly is just odd...... I would start in the UK route via the equator and then proceed almost directly north back up to KJFK. I then tried to use ROUTEFINDER to get a route, and that gave me the same routing. Now correct me if I am wrong, the most direct route between these airports is not going to be via the equator. Give it a try, go to http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/ and search for a flight from EGNX to KJFK.See, its barking,:-hmmm anyone got any ideas?I am using the latest updates in all software and have cycle 0701 from Navigraph.Justin

Thanks Cyrille,I have found out that I need to enable NATS when I search for a route, when this is done it works great.Justin

Hi,with all cycles after 0611 the routefinder can not find a disabled ( NATS ) route from Europe to US westcoast - they send you via Siberia to LAX/SFO instead of the routing via MY KEF SF YFB etc. ( which is the shortest, about 150 nm shorter than the most northern NAT )
