Not when you give INcorrect information.
Let me kindly remind you what you said which has incorrect information. I was trying to be nice, but this doesn’t seem to work too well with you.
Let me go this route. What is your rational for this opinion?
Did you even bother to look at the navigation maps?
Did you even read my response or look at a resource I provided (that has a VFR chart preview and resource link to a VFR map)?
One even better, how is one to get confused between the VOR RSW and the airport KFMY when the identifiers are not even remotely close.
AGAIN. 5.8 miles does not affect flight planning purposes that much. Even in my Sundowner, it’s a measily 2 minute difference.
So, there must be another reason other then airports and fixes that ATC decided to use a bogus entry into the FAA system.
There are many things not privy to pilots that are available to ATC, and this FMYDT is probably one of them. This would run parallel to MVA (for non pilots, MVA means Minimum Vectoring Altitude).
In simple words, it **most likely **has nothing to do with FMY as there is no navigational gain from filing direct to that airport (from a pilot’s perspective).
While I don’t know what FMYDT means and clearly stated this in my original response, **I do know it has nothing to do with an airport or VOR **as it is not based on a valid fix as you stated above.
If there is something I am saying wrong, please enlighten me with some resources I (and others) can evaluate.
