Special Arrivals/Waypoints

KDCA Special Arrivals and Waypoints


I know these have existed for a while, I just wanted to bring them up


The FAA after the terror attacks of September 11th made some new arrivals into Reagan National Airport as a way to remember the attacks. They are apart of of new system(back then when these were created), and their names are FRDMM(freedom) and TRUPS(troops)

  • FRDMM arrival consists of these waypoints: WEEEE WLLLL NEVVR FORGT SEP11, which stands for we will never forget 9/11

  • TRUPS arrival consists of the following waypoints: USAAY WEEDU SUPRT OOURR TRUPS, which stands for USA: we do support our troops

  • There are many other waypoints that aren’t apart of these arrivals that are also there to show support of our troops, nations, and remember the attacks on September 11th. Some of these are: STAND and TGTHR (together), HEROO, HONNR(honor), COURG(courage)
    ALL WAYPOINTS MENTIONED ARE IN INFINITE FLIGHT IF YOU WANT TO USE THEM

I’m thinking about creating an event using the FRDMM arrival on 9/11, and a TRUPS arrival on July 4

This would be great. Imagine FDS releasing this on 9/11 and having an FNF for it the Friday after 9/11.

The waypoints are already in infinite flight, I checked

I tried looking them up a bit back and they weren’t in the game.

Are you sure you are typing them in right

Besides 9/11 there are more significant waypoints in the U.S:

Lebanon

HAMM
BURGR
FRYYS

Kansas City

SPICY
BARBQ
TERKY
SMOKE
RIBS

Boston

KUBBS
BEARS

You are welcome, enjoy your solem flight that day

Think you mean Chicago here. But yes, there are special waypoints around the country that are related to the nearby city/region.

Any of the two arrivals along with the Potomac River visual would be perfect.

Wow, that is cool and very special!


believe this is a dup post…

It is clearly already closed, this post is fine in my opinion. OP did an awesome job 🙂🤪

Also, those aren’t necessarily IRL flight plans, or arrivals/departures, since these are two real arrivals into KDCA, this thread is different then that one.
