New to ASN I need flight plan help.

Recommended Posts

Hi I just downloaded ASN and I am trying to use it with the 777 heres is my issue.

 

I use FlightSim Commander for my fight plans I save it, load it into ASN it enters the weather I save it again then fire up the PMDG.

when I go to load the plan only the FSC plan shows and I am unable to load the wind data etc. Is there a way to save ASN plan as a plan the FMC will read? Is there something I am doing wrong that I can change?

 

thanks in advance

Everything will work just fine. Your workflow is just isn't in the correct order.

 

From FSC, save a flight plan in PMDG format. You do not need to save one for ASN at all.

 

Open ASN and go to settings. In the settings check the box for "auto import FSX plan." You only need to do this once (not before every flight - it's a set and forget kind of thing).

 

Next, load the sim. In the PMDG SETUP> SIMULATION menu, towards the last few pages, there will be options for automatically creating an FSX flight plan from what the FMC has in it, along with an auto-load feature (all of this happens in the background). Set both of those to YES. You only need to do this once (not before every flight - it's a set and forget kind of thing).

 

 

 

With those options set, before each flight, all you need to do is have FSC create a PMDG route file. Ensure its placed in the PMDG Flightplans folder (PFPX does this automatically, not sure about FSC). Load the sim. Set up the FMC as usual, using the ROUTE REQUEST function. The plane/sim and ASN manage all the rest for you.
