Flight Planning Question

Recommended Posts

Hi. I don't know if this is the correct place to post this but as I'm using P3D I picked here so apologies if it's wrong.

 

When flight planning with Aivlasoft or Route Finder etc I often see [dst] or other things in square brackets. What does this mean? I've tried searching but I can't find an answer!

 

Can someone point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks

Do you see the brackets in reference to a time? If so, I can only think of 'Daylight Saving Time'.

A route I've just seen it on is KVOK to KJAC created through Route Finder in Aivlasoft EFB. The [dst] part appears as though it's in the STAR approach (runway 19, ILSY, DNW transition)

I couldn't reproduce it to see in what context it shows. Could it be related to "destination"?

I think you mean DCT, meaning a "direct" route between the two points.

hello.

 

Id place a bet on its struggling to find you a correct route that complies with NRP.  

 

I just tried the route on LIDO and Jetplanner, both had issues trying to do it because theres no sid out of KVOK and the transition point of DNW isnt on a high level airway only a low level one. So both jetplanner and lido are getting stuck at BOY. 

 

Alas with a bit of tweaking, there you go.  

 

KVOK..RWF J34 DPR J32 BOY V298 DNW..KJAC

 

cheers

Thanks all. It's definitely [dst].

 

Also I've noticed [alt] as well. I assume this is altitude but not sure why it's there?

Where are you seeing them can you post a screenshot, and route finder is crap, You'll be better off using pfpx, fboweb. Flightaware and edi-gla.co.uk

 

Alt could mean alternative airport with a screenshot it could mean anything. Do me a favour and run a route between eggw and egss and from lfll to Geneva and tell me what route it gives you
