Thread: Understanding waypoints on X-Plane

  1. #1

    Default Understanding waypoints on X-Plane

    I'm learning!
    I have programmed a route from Bristol international (UK) to Manchester.
    EGGD - EGCC
    I chose a departure from Bristol on runway 27.
    I am presented with
    BADI1X
    BCN1X
    EXMO1X
    Before choosing the runway, I have the following options;-
    BADI1X
    BCN1X
    BCN1Z
    EXMO1X
    EXMO1Z and
    WOTA1Z

    I believe BCN is Brecon but what is the significance of the suffix - 1X.

    All help gratefully received.

    They are SIDs.
    Predetermined departures.
    Look them up on a chart of bristol. Online.

    Thanks for the response. I guess that the suffixes are just different routes to the same waypoints?

    No, they are each different routes points.

    I thought I understood!

    Routes between (e.g.) Brecon and Bristol are listed as BCN1X AND BCN1Z.

    Same origin, same destination.
