FMC

If you were programming your FMC to go somewhere and you were setting up the RTE1 2/2 and there's slots to put the VIA and TO info, where can you find the information to enter those waypoints?

TO is a waypoint, I.E. "TO CVG" (a VOR station not too far from my house😀 )

VIA is an airway I.E. "VIA J58" (a number I pulled out of... somewhere)

Basically it saves you from having to type in a bunch of waypoints, when you're programming your flight plan you can type in the last point on the airway you're following, and the airway, and the computer will fill the rest along the way. It's like navigating using roads rather than a list of intersections you want to drive through. When you're flying an IFR flight you should use the "airway to airway" option, and it should give you the name of the airways you'll be using.

Where would you find the airway and waypoint?. Like if I were to go from Miami intl to orlando intl. How the hell would I know what the airways and waypoints are? How could I find them?

You'd use a flight planner, most convenient one is the built in flight planner that comes with FSX. There are others out there as well that are better, google's your friend 😀
