Route planner

Recommended Posts

http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/

 

When  using  this  when entering  Phnl to Klas it gives me  a route of  over 10000 kms  which  takes me the long way round for some reason.  Where as if I use another  Route planner being  vroute it gives me the right  distance and route etc.

One time it took my YMML-KLAX route up through asia, canada and alaska

It doesn't take the pacific routes well.

Are you using the NAT facility correctly? If not, you will be sent around the Atlantic rather than across it. HTH.

Assuming it is PHNL to KLAX (Honolulu to Los Angeles), we don't talk about NAT (North Atlantic Tracks) but PACOTS (Pacific Organized Track System). rfinder doesn't seem to deal with these pacific tracks, hence it will try by all means to build a "conventional" route no matter what it takes in terms of time and detour.

Thx  for heads up on this

However earlier versions of AIRAC on FSC show both high and low routes through the Pacific. If on RouteFinder you choose one of the earlier databases (for example 0903) it will build a more or less correct flight plan, though it will be outdated and can cause conflicts with current AIRAC.

Hi,

 

I personally have a couple of software that you can find on the market, and I use them all together because I think each of them actually brings something special....Here is a video I did (not perfect) but that could help you a bit....if you have some questions, don't hesitate...

FlightAware, or do it yourself.  There's no better way.

 

FlightAware's routes take into account changes in the route structure, current traffic management initiatives, weather, wind, and so on.  If you're flying a real world route anywhere close to the real world flight, then there's no better way.

 

Doing it yourself is the next best thing.  With sites like SkyVector now covering the whole world, it's a lot quicker and a lot more accurate than a lot of these "planners" that can often give you some canned route from years ago (or give you routes that make no sense).

 

Routing yourself is actually rather easy, and there is a tutorial in my sig.
