International routes

Post by Luis B » 13 Apr 2009, 04:41

I've always used simroutes to either find routes and get them into FS9 or just find the routes online and use the site to generate it into a file that FS could use. I've been looking at overseas flights now that there are soo many other options outside of CONUS but not sure where to look for routes. what sites, or programs, do you guys use for international flights?

You can use RouteFinder if you want. It typically generates some pretty good routes for me. You can also try VatRoute (even if you aren't flying on VATSIM) to see if it has any routes listed for your departure/destination pair.

Also, if you are flying offline you should be fine, but if you fly online be aware that flight levels typically start much lower than they do in the continental US (18,000 ft), and some countries have different rules as far as cruise altitudes are concerned (based on north-south courses instead of east-west). And then there's Russia and China who use metric altitudes. :P
