DCT on Flight plan

Hello! Since global has been out I am using Sim Brief to plan my flights. But when it gives me a flight plan I can see multiple times « DCT » but it’s not working on Infinite Flight. Can someone tell me what it is and why is it on all flight plans all around the world ? Thanks!

Hi there,

Have you had a chance to review this tutorial?

When I plan flights I use flightplandatabase, it has real flights with the waypoints the flight is actually using and accounts for the winds at your set altitude and speed in advanced search

Many flight plans have a fix, then an airway, then a fix, then an airway and the list goes on. DCT simply means direct. DCT instead of the airway for example.

Yes. That is correct.

So do I need to put it on IF, or I just can leave it ?

You can put it in if you’d like to, but it will not have any impact on your flightplans. Otherwise you can just leave it out.
