Ian Carine Evening Abraham. You must pay more attention to following the route given in the ACARS schedule. This is the RED line shown on your route map. You have flown a completely different route and taken 7:33 for a scheduled flight time of 5:55 Whilst flying you own route is permitted, this is only where it says "at pilots discretion". It is accepted that not all the waypoints and airways are in the FSX NAVAIDS database as it is old which is why MINOR route deviations are permitted PROVIDED they remain as direct as possible. The route you have flown (BLUE line on your route map) is too far off course to be acceptable. We will not be approving flights like this in future. Please pay attention to the route provided. Please read the SAAV Ops and Policies manual and the recent discussion on the Forum. If you need any assistance I will be pleased to help. Thanks!
