When following high altitude jet routes, we often have to change direction or something at a waypoint that is defined in terms of being on a certain VOR radial, right?
Well, I have discovered (belatedly!) that the maps generated by the FSX Flight Planner do not provide radial information from VOR's except when the VOR is on the flight path itself. Is there a work-around other than just using the GPS all the time, or do we have to buy enroute charts? Thanks!
You would have to buy enroute charts, Flight Simulator just doesn't give you enough information.
SimCharts has discontinued paper IFR enroute charts, they only offer approach, arrival and departure procedures, airport diagrams. Real enroute charts are available from Jeppesen but cost may be prohibitive.
