Today's date on Dash8FMC?

Recommended Posts

I purchased my Dash8 a couple of years ago - but have never really used it because I mostly fly bush flying. Now that I am flying on Vatsim, it suits me to fly either a regional jet or a Twin Turbo prop for short flights.I am learning how to use the FMC - the first thing I have noticed is that the first page shows the incorrect date for today's date. My computer time/date is set up correctly as is the Sim time. Does anybody know how to correct this?Thanks Barry

Your navigation database (referred to as an AIRAC) is out of date. It is really no big deal. You will find discrepencies with sceneries that have been reflect changes to airports since the Dash was released. For example, O'Hare recently renamed 9L/27R to 9R/27L and R9R/27L to 10/28. Your database won't reflect these changes but it doesn't matter unless you've updated your AFCAD/airport scenery to reflect these changes.With that said, you can fix this problem by visiting www.navigraph.com. For a few bucks you can download the latest AIRAC and update the Dash engine.Bob
