I'd still rather see a 20 or 30 degree intercept if possible just "because", but it looks you can get away with what your trainee proposes.



With a good LNAV/VNAV airplane (737 and higher on the Boeing side, NOT the CRJ or E145!) I'd rather have the direct to the fix regardless of the angle. The LNAV will figure out the turn and the VNAV will figure out the path. What I don't want is direct to the fix then a last minute "shortcut" vector to reduce the join angle. That will undermine the VNAV path that has been established and will result in being too high and fast.
