Full ARINC 424 support?

Recommended Posts

Hi PMDG,will the upcoming 737NG support the full set of the in ARINC 424 specified so called "path and terminators"?Especially RNAV-procedures, eg. with arcs around "virtual" center fixes, would profit from this featrure.The solution at the moment is no bad, but nevertheless, it's far(!) away from the real world.BRGS,Marc

I don't know what their plans are, but I think it is safe to assume that they will implement the minimum required set of legs required for terminal procedures, which includes the AF (arc-fix) leg. The ARINC 424 is actually a database specification that defines the structure of records in the database for navaids, airports, terminal procedures, waypoints, etc. There are about two dozen path-terminator defined, of which only about six or eight (my memory) are required to implement terminal procedures; the AF is one of them.

Hi Dan,that sounds good, the AF-leg is imho quite important!I hope as well they will remove the mandatory runway fix "RW__".I know many procedures which include a visual segment to the runway (eg. Madeira, LPMA) without a runway fix:b37m63gg5607yu1mr.jpgreal Airbus | PS1.3 B744 SimulatorMaybe it's too early to ask, but get to "old" aircraft (737NG v1, 744, MD-11) as well an ARINC424-update?BRGSMarc
