waypoint <alt> <spd> <name> <lat> <lon>

This is the standard command to define waypoints.

Waypoints can be VOR or ADF target as well as airports, FIXES or GPS targets.

<alt> is the altitude in feet in which the waypont has to be crossed

<spd> is the speed in knots or mach (depeding on the current speedmode setting) in which the waypoint has to be approached. 

<lat> and <lon> are optional parameters. 

If  "set userinput on" is issued in the beginning of a flight plan, <alt> and <spd> values are not set and can be freely chosen by the pilot. 

FSXPilot will wait in a flight plan until the waypoint has been reached.


Because in the world of aerial navigation duplicate NAV names exist worldwide, the NAV range around the aircraft is approximately 400 km. Setting waypoints in a greater distance will probably fail. 

If you want to force FSXPilot to fly to a very distant target please use the farselect <ICAO> command.  

If you want to fly to specific GPS locations please use the gpswaypoint command.   

Example 1: 

waypoint 1500. 220. DME001

will make the airctraft: (1) adjust climbrate to hit 1500 m altitude at 'DME001' (intersection). Will set speed to 220. Will wait in flight plan until: (air) 1000 m inbound the target or (ground) 30 m inbound the target. This is all in one command.  Latitude and longitude are optional and not needed here. 

Example 2: 

farselect EDDM

wait distin 300.

waypoint 15000. 220. WLD

fly short autolanding EDDM 08l

will make the aircraft: (1) fly to EDDM and (2) wait until 300 miles inbound and only then fly to WLD VOR which is then in range and the fly a short GPS auto landing on rw 08L
