To use CO-ROUTE you need to have a route in .rte or .rt2 format in the PMDG/FLIGHTPLANS folder. Is there one ?

yes i have the .rt2 format files in there .....


Maybe it contains an out of date waypoint. Where did you get the LFPG -Berlin .rt2 file from ?


What is the date of your navdata database ?

I like to use the planner at .  For the PMDG B747 it will create a .rte flight plan.  Here are the steps I use:


 1. select desired file format. For you it will be .rte(PMDG)

 2. enter the departure and destination codes (4 letter airport codes)

 3. choose your Airac Cycle (find it in your FMC init/ref ident page)

 4. select your altitude min. and max. or use the default values

 5. select route level or use default value

 6. select your aircraft Boeing 747 (PMDG) the blue Create plan button

 8. scroll down past the map and click on go to files

 9. right click on the filename with the .rte extension

10.  choose save link as....

11. save the file to your PMDG/FLIGHTPLANS folder (a subfolder of your FS installation

12. in FS open your FMC and click on the RTE button

13. enter in the name of the file you just saved (without the extension) into the sratchpad

14. click on the RLSK3 button (next to the dashed line under CO ROUTE)

15. click on the RLSK6 button (activate)

16 click on the lit EXEC button


Your company route has now been entered into your FMC as the active flight plan.
