Flight Plan Question

Recommended Posts

I just went to Flightaware to plan a route I want to fly in FS. I thought I could decode all routes but this one stumps me: KAVP-KORD, LVZV147 LHY301047 J36 DKK FNT PMM5. I know V147 is Victor 147 to LHY which is a vor right near LVZ, but what is the 301047? On another plan from KORD-KMSP, it says PLL PLL275065. What is the 275065? Thanks. Tom

FMCs can create waypoints based off radials and distance from nav. facilities. For instance, 301047 might be the 301 radial and 47 miles, so there would be a waypoint on the 301 radial - 47 miles from LHY VOR. The same for the second one as well.Greg

Thnks for the help Greg. Not sure of the exact planes but I think they were CRjs - probably a 200. Thanks again. Tom
