(3) Waypoint Transition with Parallel Offsets.
The parallel offset flight plan may result in severe
geometry at waypoints with large course changes. To
resolve this condition the offset pseudo-waypoint is
never displaced along the inbound leg track by more
than two times the width of the offset. Figure 3C-54
shows an offset definition where the along track shift of
the pseudo - waypoint is less than two times the offset
width, resulting in a continuous offset flight plan.
