Filing for a Lat/Long
Sometimes just knowing the preferred route isn’t enough. You need the secret code for putting that route into the system.
Every year I fly from my home base at Rock Hill, S.C., to Fond du Lac, Wisc., for the Oshkosh AirVenture fly-in. I normally take a route east of both Cincinnati and Chicago, which takes me over Lake Michigan. As I near the lake, I always get the following re-route: “Cleared direct Pullman, then via the Pullman 333 radial to intercept V510, Falls, direct Fond du Lac.”
