A while ago I purchased the PMDG 737-800/900 editions, and I have just got to grips with it and successfully completed the tutorial flight.
I have looked through the forum archives before posting a new thread, and couldn't find a thread which answered my question specifically.
I'm interested in flying to new destinations using the FMC rather than ATC guiding me, however, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to create a flight plan/route. Is there any websites which offer 'pre-made' flight plans so I can just key in the airways and waypoints into the FMC.
Or do most PMDG 737 users just use ATC rather than the FMC?
PMDG actually included over 200 flightplans that are in the
I have just checked this folder, and its empty, I've tried a re-install, but still no luck.
It's not very realistic, but I normally fly directly to the STAR, or transition, and then land.
I have meant to get to grips with Radar Contact, but havn't the time to devote to the learning curve right now.
Take a look these websites:
i use the routes that fs gives me and when im programming the fmc i just use the waypoints the fs gives me, by looking at your navlog, i just need to know how to land these things using the fmc and atc, and the autopilot
it is quite easy when you know fist you put where you and where you going then click next page. then put you rote in right order. this can be found after you have made a flight plan. you will find the list in navigation plan. write it down or print and type it in to the fmc with the airport you landing in at end. if you cant understand what i mean add me to msn and i will explain as you do it on your screen.

FMC wont land you.. it will Guide you down and to you waypoints.. but even still the ATC will most likely override anything u have plugged in by the time your on your final.
I fly 737s for a major carrier. Here are a couple of routes I am flying in the near future:
ABQ TXO V62 LBB :KABQ-KLBB fl330
LBB V102 GTH GREGS5 DAL :KLBB-KDAL fl370
DAL TEX9 TUL CNU JHAWK5 MCI :KDAL-KMCI fl410
MCI CHIEF3 CATTS MCK SNY BOY DBS J82 DNJ LTJ BONVL5 PDX: KMCI-KPDX fl360
There are a days worth of real-world flight plans for you.
