Saving / Importing flightplans in FMC

Recommended Posts

Hi simmers!I've checked 15 previous pages of this forum, to be sure that my question hasn't been asked before:"How can I save or import/restore flightplans in the 737NG FMC?"In the root C:.....flight simulator 9PMDG folder there is a folder called "flightplans", but I don't know how to oprate the FMC properly! Also in the manuals I couldn't find a hint, how to do this!Thanks, any help appreciated!Rene BillianiAUA358

HiThis has been covered before ;-)You can't import flight plans into the FMC. You can however load flight plans in the PMDG format. Be sure to have your flight plan in the PMDGFLIGHTPLANS folder. On the RTE page enter the name of your flight plan (without the dot and extension) in the scratch pad and line select CO RTE (company route) the flight plan is now loaded. To build flight plans in the PMDG format you can either manually create a flight plan using the FMC and save it! Or you can use the freeware (ver 1.4.3), or payware (2.x.y) version of the flight planner FBuild. That software has the capability to export flight plans to PMDG format amongst others.Hope it helps,

Sure you can, but you have to have a program like FSBuild 2 to create the flight plan and have it saved in the proper format for the FMC. FSB will save the flight plan to the PMDGFlightplans folder. It will have a file name of eight characters plus the extension .rte. Then open the FMC, enter the eight character name (do not include the extension) and move it to co route LSK. The flight plan will load into the FMC, but you will probably find that you have to edit it.
