    The letter indicates which track you are assigned to. Here is a picture of today's eastbound North Atlantic Tracks...

    NICSO is the entry gate for track Q and BEXET is the exit gate. The number groups listed between those points are lat/lon intermediate waypoints.

    So from NICSO you would fly to 48N 50W, then 51N 40W, etc.

    Hope that helps.

    peace,

    thanks Bean.
    How do I know the entry and exit gate of each track ?
    For example Track N, what is the entry and exit gate ?
    I can't see from your attach picture.
    thanks

    Take a look at - SkyVector.com

    Click on Layers, then the Nav tab and you can turn on the current tracks.

    If you click on the track you get that little popup.

    Remember that these tracks change daily, currently there is no N track.
