Adding new airport and runway to pss data

Recommended Posts

Dear friends. I've put the coordinates about my particular airport and runways into the pssapt, pssrwy and when I loaded it in the FMGC and their appear far(about 20nm) from the original location. As well I saw that the others airports have this difference in the pssapt(coord are differents in the AFCAD and pssapt) and in the FMGC appear in the exact location.Anyone knows how I can put my particular airport in the passapt and it appear correctly in my FMGC???Thxs so muchViniciusSeville - Spain

I suspect you are trying to enter the data in degrees and minutes rather than in degrees and fractional degrees.Example: Fictitious airfield KXXX located at N49 30 00 W109 40 00Should appear in pssapt.dat as:KXXX 49.500000-109.666667 1000 ;Gotham City IntlIf you use 49.300000-109.400000 you're going to be a good ways off.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile
