Way point

A specified geographical location used to define an area navigation route or the flight path of an aircraft employing area navigation. Way points are identified as either:

  • Fly-by way point – A way point which requires turn anticipation to allow tangential interception of the next segment of a route or procedure, or
  • Flyover way point – A way point at which a turn is initiated in order to join the next segment of a route or procedure.
