Requesting Course Change for weather

Recommended Posts

Just in the middle of a long haul and my plan took me just north of quite a storm. I was wondering, had that storm been in my way, I would have had to divert around it. What is or is there a procedure in P2A to request a course change for weather?  Would I use the "request direct to xxxx" away from the cell and then once past it "request direct to xxxx" which would be the next waypoint of my flightplan and then continue on as normal?

thanks for any insight,

p

As you suggest, the only way would be to choose a Navaid that would take you around it and request a direct-to course as you suggest.  Then, once around it, get a direct-to to the next waypoint in the flight plan to get back on course.

Thanks Dave. That made logical sense to me. Just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed a procedure somewhere.

Thanks,
