Question on US flight plans

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

as many of you know, over in Europe routes have to adhere to specific requirements in order to be accepted and released by ATC, pass the CFMU validator, etc., and the RAD document is the reference for IFR flight planning, telling us what routes and levels may be filed.

I am wondering if there is a similar process for the US. If I get a route from PFPX, or any planner, how do I know the flight plan is correct? I know FlighAware is the website most turn to for flight plans in the US, and that could be the starting point. But maybe there is a document like RADs for the US as well.

Being from Europe, I know how it works over here, what documents or websites I can refer to, but I cannot say the same for the US skyes, so I  would like some more information from you, US pilots! Thank you in advance for any information you will give me, I know this is a sim world only, but I enjoy the planning part as much as the flying part, I always found planning for a flight very fascinating,

 

regards,

 

Enrico :wink:

Not even sure what RAD is / if there is a similar doc for USA flying...  But I'd verify with flightaware if it's a major carrier route.

 

USA is pretty easy... you can generally file enroute any fixes you want.  But if simulating rw ops you'll have to find the correct Dep Procedure and then STAR depending on winds.  Some are DP's are ATC assigned, some aren't.  I also use www.skyvector.com to visualize the routes.
