Hey I’ve had a question for a long time, how do airplanes use waypoints that aren’t real. Let me explain, so I’ve been looking at aircraft routes and I’ve noticed that they don’t pop up anywhere on a data base or map
Qatari 727 heading from doh-phl passing over parts of turkey
Now look at it on an infinite flight map
And now on a simbreaf chart
They just don’t exist and I don’t understand, like do real life pilots have different briefing than we do on data bases? Can someone please tell me the reason because it doesn’t make sense to me.
