Flight Plans

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am running 767 PIC in FS2002 and am having trouble getting the flight plans I create in FS2002 to work, as PIC looks for them in the PILOTS Dir and in FS2002 the planner saves them in the MY FLIGHTS Dir. Can anybody please help me in this matter.Thank youBrad

Personally, I would say forget about FS2002 flight plans...waste of time.Use FSBuild (freeware flightsim.com) or get the charts and have a ton of fun entering the routes into your FMC...I do ;-)Rob.PS - Here's a nice simple route for your FMC...CYOW-CYYZCYYZ/32 CYOW9 YOW J546 YSO.SIMCO1 CYYZ/24Rvia TO YOWJ546 YSODep/Arr = SIMCO1/24Ranother neat one is KJFK-KLAXvia TO RBVJ64 CIVETDep/Arr = CIVET.CIVET4This one will give you 5 or six pages of legs.Have fun.Rob.

They need to be hand entered into the FMC. The PIC stores the *.rte files in the FMCWPNavdataFlightPlans directory. I don't recall the PIC being able to import FS2000 or FS2002 generated flight plans like PSS or DF.Brent Hebert

Of course you can always copy them manually over to the Pilots Directory.

I second that, FSBuild is the ticket! It builds your PIC, SBox and FS GPS flight plans all at once.Make sure to check the total flight distance though as FSBuild sometimes uses far-away waypoints with the same name, so on a flight from, say, KJFK to KATL, you end up flying to China first :-lolAll you have to do is replace the duplicate waypoint name with the one with the right coordinates.J.

And if you nevertheless would like to get real-life flight plans with fuel predictions, you can post your request in the new flight plan forum at the bottom of the AVSIM forums page. There is a guy (Phil), probably using professional software to build these plans. ;)
