I have two questions about filling a flight plan.First one is; in to the flight plan's route box, do we have to write "DCT" between two points that are not connected with a ATS route.For example if i will fly vfr from one point to another.Do ı have to write "dct" between these two points in flight plan? or write these points without "DCT"

My second question is; i saw some flight plans that have "RVR..." in other information box.In which cases  do we write this info in flight plan?

 Thanks for your help sir.

    “do we have to write “DCT” between two points”
    Given that we normally read the flight plan to someone over the phone or radio, why does it matter how you write it?  I normally write a D with an arrow through it, but it doesn’t matter at all.

    It depends.  If you are filing a route electronically, for a US domestic route, DCT is not used between waypoints, you just list them in sequence.  For example, Departure KUZA; Destination KCRE; Route – CTF FLO CRE.  If you are filing an ICAO format flightplan, then the route section uses DCT between the waypoints for example: CTF DCT FLO DCT CRE.
