Strange FMC error (747-400)

Recommended Posts

Guest draci

Hi,I was planning a flight from WSSS to ZSPD using FSBuild2 with the actual Airac Cycle (both for PMDG and FsBuild2) and Arrival Procedures (06-11).When entering the destination airport ZSPD on the first route page, the FMC reported an error like "error: ZSPD p3 unknown" (I don't remember the exact message). On the Dep/Arrival page there were no arrivals (not even runways) available for ZSPD to choose from. When I enter ZSPD manually as a waypoint into the legs page, then ZSPD is recognized. Is there another database that I need to update? Or is there just something wrong with the current cycle? I tried (06-10), (05-13) as wellbut still I got the error when entering ZSPD as my destination.Or is ZSPD just a too unimportant airport to include its arrival procedures into the database? Any help appreciated.Thanks.

There used to not be any Zxxx codes in the database. I haven't checked if the commercial source is providing any (Current cycle is 0611) through Navigraph, but I don't think it's anything to do with importance (whatever that means). It is simply a question of availability of data.

ZSPD does not have a proper procedure file for the new navdata.
