Flight Plan identification

Recommended Posts

Guest MatthewSchoenberg

What is everyone doing to access the Flight Plans? I know they are in the Flight Plan folder in PMDG but they are number coded and I am not aware of how to understand what each one is or how to bring them up in FMC.Any help would be appreciated.

They are coded either in ICAO or IATA airport codes format:for example, a San Francisco to Sydney f/p may be:KSFOYSSY or SFOSYD (maybe with some 001 or 002 attached at the end, depending if you wish to have several different flightplans for the same route).To bring them up, just go to the ROUTE page and put a vliad f/p name in the CO ROUTE entry (scratchpad then LSK). Then proceed with activate it and set all you parameters.Regards

I would also consider along the idea of "How did you save them in the first place?"Or are you "importing them" from somewhere else? Then again, it would depend on how you saved those flightplans in terms of "naming convention"...Cheers,Norbert - CLX001CEO Virtual Cargoluxwww.virtualcargolux.orgCLX_banner_grey.jpg

If you have a real hard time figuring out which is which, you can go here: http://www.iata.org/ps/publications/codes_demo.htmand type it in. Cheers,

The problem is that you can't see these Flight Plans unless you go to the actual folder is FS9 under PMDG and then you look each one up in Windows.Also, here are two flight plans I looked at in Windows and then put in FMC. These are their names and where they go:ADLBNE001 goes from YPAD to YBBNADLCBR001 goes from YPAD to YSCB.Given the name for each flight plan, how an I suppose to know these without putting each and everyone in the computer to see what comes up?Surely their must be a better way?Thanks for all your suggestions.
