Hi...I can't figure out how to connect my last waypoint to the IAF.

The approach chart starts with the IAF at the edge of the chart...But my last waypoint (provided by Simbrief) is 125 miles from the IAF. If I connect them...I'm flying in restricted airspace, and other airports patterns.
How do I complete this missing part of the flight plan?

Thanks.

Without having any more specific information about where you are flying, it sounds like you need a STAR. Your last Simbrief waypoint may be a STAR transition, or may connect to a STAR transition. The STAR will avoid restricted airspace. Remember though that for best results your last PF3 waypoint should generally be around 25-40 nm from the destination airport (less than 20 nm can cause problems and is not recommended, and less than 15 nm should trigger a warning when you load the flight plan).
