=== AI Flightplans ===
:''See also [[AI Scenarios#Flightplans and Their Waypoints]].''
 
These flightplans contain only waypoints.
 
==== Waypoint tags ====
Each waypoint can contain the following tags:
* <tt>'''<name>'''</tt> - Waypoint name, if END it is the last waypoint use EOF or, if you want the AI model is deleted, END.
* <tt>'''<lat>'''</tt> - Latitude, decimal degrees
* <tt>'''<lon>'''</tt> - Longitude, decimal degrees
* <tt>'''<crossat>'''</tt> - Crossing altitude, feet
* <tt>'''<ktas>'''</tt> - Knots true air speed
* <tt>'''<on-ground>'''</tt> - True or 1 if on ground, if in air or in a tunnel set to falseor 0* <tt>'''<gear-down>'''</tt> - True for gear down, false for gear up, or 0 to 1* <tt>'''<flaps-down>'''</tt> - True for flaps down, false for flaps up, or 0 to 1

=== Route manager flightplans ===
:''See also [[Route manager#Defining a Route]].''
 
Rout manager waypoints are a bit more complex, for starters they contain departure and destination information and not just one type of waypoint.
 
Note that the first and last waypoint are the departure and destination airports.
 
There are in FlightGear support for Level-D 767 SIDs and STARs.
 
==== Departure and destination tags ====
* <tt>'''<airport type="string">'''</tt> - The ICAO identifier of the airport
* <tt>'''<sid type="string">'''</tt> - Any available SID
* <tt>'''<star type="string">'''</tt> - Any available STAR
* <tt>'''<transition type="string">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<runway type="string">'''</tt> - Departure or destination runway
 
==== Waypoint types and tags ====
* <tt>'''runway'''</tt> - The runway end on the departure and destination airports. Accompanied by the <icao> tag.
* <tt>'''navaid'''</tt> - Any significant point along the route. Both airports, navaids and fixes.
* <tt>'''offset-navaid'''</tt> - An point offset from a navaid by a bearing and distance. Note that true bearings are used here.
 
* <tt>'''<type type="string">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<alt-restrict type="string">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<altitude-ft type="double">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<ident type="string">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<icao type="string">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<lon type="double">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<lat type="double">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<radial-deg type="double">'''</tt> -
* <tt>'''<distance-nm type="double">'''</tt> -
