I didn’t intend to suggest that this was properly the province of IYP. I
apologize if that was how it came off. I fully understand your commitments to
your family, and deeply appreciate the work you’ve done on the program and
helping us these many years.
I have no doubt IYP will continue to serve admirably, as it has in many past
flights. This was just a particular incident which happened recently, and so
brought the idea to mind. I continue to be amazed that we can properly fly at
All the best,

I simply do not currently have the time to dedicate to such a huge
undertaking. My life has become far more domesticated since the passing of my
wife after a 40-year marriage. Perhaps when my eldest son graduates from
medical school and can take over caring for my autistic and physically
handicapped youngest son, my two grandchildren, as well as my 95-year old
Mother who has late-stage dimentia, I will have more time.
Till then... the IYP programme remains frozen as is... sorry.

ATC just asked me to confirm that I was on the airway, which I unfortunately
What would really be useful here would be a way to construct flight plans
with arbitrary waypoints. THe FSX automatic route generator doesn’t really
work for this, because it doesn’t guarantee that the route I’m given by ATC
will be the one it generates. In this case, the problem was that I was
expected to join the airway mid-stream, which I wasn’t sure how to do.

How did the traffic controller reacted to that?

Understood. I’ll have to see if I can figure out how to get more specific
routes into the flight planner.

If the GPS contains the route data, simply say, "Resume GPS navigation".

I’m wondering if anybody has tips for how to join an airway on departure?
I was flying on PilotEdge this evening, and expected to join the V23
airway, after flying a heading of 90 degrees.
Apparently there are a few ways to do this, but most of them require you
to scan instruments visually. I wasn’t given a VOR or other waypoint fix
to track from, I was just expected to know which way to go.
Is anybody able to give me any insight into this? The routing I was flying
was KSNA V23 MZB KSDM, for those who know how to read ATC route strips. :)
THanks for any thoughts,
