Turnpoint Databases

If you are looking for turnpoint files for your task planning software or your flight computer try these out for size.

Firstly, let’s get the disclaimers out of the way – these files are made available entirely without warranty etc etc. You know the drill. Seriously, use these files entirely at your own risk. Check to make sure the information is current, and correct for yourself. Don’t even think about making anyone else other than yourself responsible for the quality and use of the information provided here.

Note the landout points are only accurate at the time created, don’t rely on these as they may be in crop, have stock on them or be closed for whatever reason. As always have a second, third and fourth option and time to make good decisions.

Use “Save link as” to download a file. Most of the files can then be edited as you wish using a text editor.
