Leonardo Maddog AIRAC problem

Recommended Posts

To begin with, you might wonder why I'm posting here and not in the Flythemaddog forums. The reason is the forum is basically dead. There's no official support at all. I just bought the product and I knew the risk.

 

Anyway here we go.

 

The Maddog does not ship with an Airac, instead the devs are saying that copying the pmdg SIDSTARS folder to the Maddog folder will work fine. Now maybe it does or maybe not but it's certainly not working for me.

 

I like to do my first flights with new airplanes from Oslo to Arlanda. The route MASEV Z183 ELTOK is the standard route which I have flown in the 777,NGX & AXE countless times.  For some reason when inserting Z183 it gave me the "not in database" error.  FYI yes I have used the cleanup tool provided by Leonardo to find errors in the airac. I then moved to KDFW to see if airways worked at all. Indeed they worked. I tried a route from Dallas to Philadelphia. The Airac I'm using is the 1412 which is the latest. Accoring to Flightaware the route used recently had the SEEVR6 arrival or something. While browsing the available arrivals for KPHL the SEEVR6 was not there, in fact there were no SEEVR arrival at all.  Correct me if I'm wrong but that arrival should be listed no?

 

I'm obviously doing the conversion thing wrong, any help? :)

The SIDS and STARS files (of which there are about 6000 individual files) should be copied from the PMDG SIDSTARS folder into the SIDSTARS folder located in your MADDOG2008 folder.

 

However the AIRAC files, for airports, navaids, airways etc. (a total of 6 files I believe) do NOT go into your MADDOG2008 folder. These need to go into a folder called "FMCWP" which is located in your main FSX folder. You can create this folder manually if it does not already exist.

 

If you don't put the AIRACS in the FMCWP folder, your MD-80 FMS will be using current SID and STARS, but out-of-date nav data, which would account for why you can't find certain procedures at certain airports.
