Well, that makes three of us…
It would be a cool feature to use
You COULD do a little detective work if you wanna go about things the hard way…
1st - get out your high-altitude charts (or low if you’re interested in general aviation). See what airways use nearby navaids. In my case CSN (Casanova VOR) is one a lot of planes fly to. Checking out my old H-4 chart shows that they’re following J48 which basically links the northeast with Atlanta.
So I check FlightAware’s Origin-to-Destination page and search what planes from airports in the NE might use J48 to get to ATL. LGA comes to mind, so I check KLGA to KATL:
and I find lots of flights between those two airports. Clicking on the individual flights, I see that the routes filed do indeed include J48! So add LGA to the list…
Next, how 'bout JFK…?
Ain’t too many, but they do use J48 - add JFK to the list…
How 'bout BOS…?
Yep! They use J48 too - add BOS
How 'bout PHL?
By golly, I see J48 in the routes there too!
Looking beyond Atlanta, I see Tallahassee, Florida follows that general direction… but no flights listed. I checked LGA to TPA (Tampa, FL) and found that they use another popular airway (J75) over my area for that route.
So it looks like J48 is pretty much the road from NY/Boston to Atlanta.
It would be so much easier to type-in “j48” and get a list of all the flights from BOS/LGA/JFK to ATL in a chronological order…
Is this something that can be done, dbaker?
