(my waypoints are not exactly like others on the net. Airports have 1,000 feet added to arrive at pattern altitude. Some locations have been modified to be more accurate. Names are set up for 10 digits to fit in Garmin 76s. Airport names have frequency hints as the last two digits. Comments for airports have the direction of runways and indicate if it is right pattern.)
