I was completely thrilled to see my plane flying, more or less!!!, the same route in more or less the same time compared to Flightaware. In my opinion it is extremely hard to get complete coverage. Things as actual flight conditions, weather, plane weight, actual cruize speed, step climb procedures, actual SID's and STAR's and route diversions are hard to follow. I have all the issued books in the series: Ian Allan's From the Flightdeck. These books describe cockpit and crew actions almost minute by minute of actual real world flights. For instance Issue 11 : B747 EGLL - VHHH. All aircraft figures and full flightplan are given in the book and can be reproduced in Flightsim. However I found that strange as it may seem, some waypoints from the book were not available in Flightplanning. hope the screendump of my son's flight gives an indication. stay well....

    Very interesting info. I will look at Little NavMap and see if I can create a flight plan using waypoints from a real world plan.

    Thanks

    Default flight plan

    Flightaware.com shows flightplans of real world flights. Just look up that flight and you will have to learn to click your way to the flightplan to view it. Hit decode to see every waypoint used in the flight.
