Thanks Vololiberista, and Dan 77 for those comments. I don't remember Hober being clearly out of place on the image, but maybe i wasn't paying attention. What i do now is let FP create the route, save it and then feed it into PFE3 and see what it says. If it says Wypts x and x are too close together (had that feature switched off previously) i delete one of them in the saved plan. Same for Wypts too close to destination airport..then i re save the flight plan after renumbering the Wypts. Last night i flew the same route Atlanta to Little Rock, had the same down wind leg, and landing runway was 4L. Worked like a charm. Once again, thanks everyone for your input.
Sometimes the warning about wypts being too close together is not important. I always have it turned off actually! What you do need to check is that the fpl makes directional sense in terms of flight time and fuel. Strange dog legs like this one don't make sense and are quite obvious. It is perfectly ok to amend a fpl in this way to go direct or off airway to avoid such a problem.
