James, when I wrote 'designator', I meant name; as in the name of the SID or STAR, as in KARLO or BOOTH etc. That's all. The more this gets discussed, and especially after your answer, I am becoming more and more a fan of supporting only providing a Flight Number, Aircraft Class, Flight Time, Departure and Destination in the flight schedule. Your point about how quickly routings become obsolete is well stated. I'm coming to the opinion that the best help that we should ask the Hub to provide is a link to where we can find the right information to plan and execute the flight. What do you think?

Your thoughts, Gary? Sorry I haven't had the time to try the linking idea yet, but I haven't forgotten about it. Please be patient with me. I'm old and frail.

I agree with Ken...

I think the last time I used one of our published routes was when I first joined and was flying the Class 1 aircrafts. Once I moved up to Class 2, it quickly became apparent that the routes changed...and often. Been doing my own planning since....

I'd just do as Ken says, and somewhere on the same page put some links to the more popular flight planner sites and software.

My 1 cent. Sorry, I'm short of cash today...

Cheers!

Dave's on the right track.

Why reinvent the wheel. If Simroutes is already doing this kind of thing, why not publish (as per Ken) Flight #, aircraft, dep - dest. and a link to simroutes, or a site of that nature?

Then we can do up a "flight planning" lesson for the academy and be done with it.

####, Gary, it'd make the Captains job all the easier!

Here Here!

Excellent Idea Ken and I agree with Keith. Let's JUST DO IT! That'll keep us up to date and consistent for the most part with the sim routes.

Now...if we could only get someone from the YYZ hub to update OUR routes...

:D
