Hello, like the oceanic tracks, planes fly over water in a line. Over land, during long distances, planes also fly like this. Like Europe to Asia or Europe to Africa. Is there any land tracks in real life and will this be added to the game?
Over land, there are no tracks as far as I’m concerned. You might be referring to airways, which are a thing everywhere, however they are not currently implemented in infinite flight
Most airlines try to follow airways when route planning. Use SkyVector to locate airways between various waypoints/destinations as that is what almost all IRL airlines use.
oh then how is it different to oceanic tracks, it is the same but oceanic tracks is on water?
because there is no ATC over ocean
so planes must use the tracks for separation
Oceanic tracks are just a line to allow safe distance between aircraft over the ocean, as there is no ATC coverage there. Airways on the other hand are like highways, where you combine them to create your route. If you think about it, oceanic tracks are also airways, so be with a few extra safety protocols
Oceanic tracks are predefined routes that guarantee separation if they are separated when entering the track. This is because there is no ATC/radar coverage over large oceans.
Airways are routes of controlled airspace at which airlines try to use as it helps ATC with separation, and also keeping them away from VFR flights.
ok thank you
there is actually land tracks between perth and brisbane in australia but I think those are inactive.
