Keeping with the odd waypoint names....

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, in my last post I noted how I was routing to TOJAM in a previous flight.

Well now I'm creating a flight and dropping the route into the GTN 750, and when I get to the leg on UJ24 where I need to hop off (sadly its TEQ and not the top selection) is what I'm presented with...


Flying from Puerto Vallarta to San Salvador using SimBrief routing, it gave me this route and when you load airways in the GTN 750, it lists all the waypoints along that airway.  Had I been flying an airliner (like I normally do) I would have never seen this interesting waypoint...strange coincidence. 🙂

Here is the routing in case you're interested in recreating the flight: PVR UJ14S VOLAT UPN UJ24 TEQ UL423 IZT J13 TAP UL423 PIXEN OBRAS

This hobby can be so interesting, LoL.

Agreed. I enjoy reading waypoint names and trying to discern whether there's any meaning to them. Some of those where I live (near CYVR) are related to places--e.g., JORJA, which is in the Georgia Straight, a body of water between the Vancouver mainland and Vancouver Island; BOGGI, which is located in an area, a bog, called Burns Bog; and STAVE, which is located near Stave Lake.
