When a waypoint becomes a history waypoint, a
# following the waypoint number indicates that the
waypoint is no longer an active or future waypoint.
(3) Flight Plan Waypoints.
maximum of 60 active waypoints and 39 history
waypoints are allowed in the flight plan at a time. The
flight plan waypoints are numbered sequentially in
increments of one, from 01 to 99, with waypoint 00 as
the initial history waypoint. If a waypoint is added past
99, the numbering starts at 01 and uses the first
available waypoint number not used by a history or
active waypoint. Non-SID, STAR, approach, or
alternate flight plan waypoints that are inserted
between existing waypoints receive an alphabetical
suffix. If a SID, STAR, approach, or alternate flight
plan is inserted into the flight plan, no alphabetical
suffix is used. The SID, STAR, and approach
waypoints are numbered in the normal method with
These features prevent the duplication of a waypoint
number within the flight plan.

When the flight plan has been erased, the Start 1 page
