I have cracked open the flight plan and laid out the waypoints for Xbox pilots who want to recreate it. Thirty three waypoints! You can input the LAT and LONG numbers straight into the SEARCH box to get a custom waypoint to add to the flight plan. Remember to add the Departure and Arrival airports first, then you can add the other waypoints. Set the flight plan altitude in the NAV LOG button that appears in the top right corner under the Flight Conditions box.

Departure Airport - PAJN runway 26
Arrival Airport - CYXY
Altitude 4500

Thanks for all that information, Seedy. Do watch THE CALL OF THE WILD, a Harrison Ford movie, for a visual depiction of the information you very kindly shared.
