Welcome to this week’s FNF event! As the usual flights take to the Infinite Flight skies this week, we’d like to let you know of some changes coming to our events. In the coming weeks, our team is planning to take a more community-focused approach to our official events. More details will come very soon and we’re excited to breathe new life into our weekly schedule! In the meantime, please enjoy your regularly-scheduled Friday Night Flight!
All servers, all aircraft, and all liveries welcome!

Actually, in North Atlantic Airspace, the semi-circular rule does not apply. Each NAT has a set of altitudes, odd and even, which can be used for that track. No other altitude is a valid altitude for that track. They can be found on a NAT track message, issued each say by Shanwick and Gander collaboratively. It can be found by a quick google search. Obviously, tracks only go in one direction at a time, so East/West rules are redundant.
For a random routing, i.e. one that doesn’t use a track, well IRL you would get it assigned in your oceanic clearance, so semi-circular rule is fine.
Yeah, not sure why people seem to think the semi-circular “rule” is a solid rule that must always be abided to. It’s good as a suggestion, yes, but not required by any means.
