cessna and waypoints

lets go! Guest

I hope somebody will end my frustration today!

Pick up a cessna and plan a flight on FS9, you get the NAV log with way points and intersections (i.e IFR).

I understand that waypoints and intersections are points where radials from two VOR's meet. Now FS9 just tells you a name of the intersection with no details of which VOR's creates them.

How can you then know when you have reached the point. I understand waypoints can also be defined by a Distance from a VOR on a defined radial but the VOR frequencies are not given.

Without GPS, how can I fly these plans?

Does Micro soft expect us to find it out from else where of what.

Many Thanks

You need charts for the area of flight.

The charts with the VOR frequencies, airways etc are usually called "en route charts". There are a few sites where you can find good ones, one that springs to mind is:
