The server grid I use to connect is VATSIM which is the most frequently used network of pilots and controllers that fly online. It has users from all over the world which enable you to fly virtually anywhere on the planet.
Below are a few online tools I have created in order to help you with planning you flights.
Allows you to search for a specific ICAO's METAR or you can simply paste a METAR you already have. You can then have the METAR information decoded for easier comprehension.
This allows you to make sure MS Flight Simulator will follow a specific route. Many times your Virtual Airline (VA) specifies a route which is not the same as the simulator's. This tool allows you to paste the intended route and it will create an FS2004-compatible plan file (.PLN) and/or a Squawkbox plan file (.SFP) that you can download and load into the program.
Uses AIRAC cycle 3005 (May 2030)
|Route airway checker|
This is a useful tool when you wish to find out what airway can take you from waypoint A to waypoint B. You can even use a full route to find out airways that connect waypoints.
Euroscope sector converter|
This tool allows you to grab a KMZ layout done on Google Earth with your sector drawn, and convert it to .SCT format so that it can be used in Euroscope.
This tool allows you to calculate the correct point where to start your descent (TOD = Top Of Descent).
North Atlantic Tracks|
This tool shows you which NATs are currently active and shows them on the map.
UTC time converter|
This tool allows you to convert your non-real UTC time (FS time) to the current UTC time, especially useful for oceanic flights.
VATSIM online map|
This allows you to see all flight currently online in VATSIM. This tool is pretty similar to ServInfo only online. You can also specify a location (ICAO, Intersection or VOR) to automatically pinpoint traffic around it.
VATSIM ATC stats|
This allows you to see the statistics of all ATC on VATSIM. Information is provided on a weekly basis and is ordered by online time.
This tool allows you to enter a SID or STAR designation and it will show you the departure/arrival route that the ATC has given you.
