Runway Changes @ Real Airports and Flight Planning

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right forum to post this -

 

I noticed this when I tried to set up a SID from within Aivlasoft EFB: I fly regularly out of KFLL, and also subscribe to Navigraph FMS data. I also use PFPX as my flight planner and ASN for my weather. Planned a flight last night from KFLL to KJFK, and was assigned runway 10L for departure. Set up the entire route, and then imported it into EFB.

When I went to set up my departure from KFLL, I got this error message in the Data Provider:

WARNING! Navigation data runway ident 10L at airport KFLL could not be assigned to simulator runway.
WARNING! Navigation data runway ident 28R at airport KFLL could not be assigned to simulator runway.
INFO - Available simulator runways at this airport are as follows: 09L, 27R, 13, 31, 09R, 27L

I know that KFLL has changed their actives  from 9/27 to 10/28 some time ago, so how can I get EFB to reconcile with this so I can plan my SIDs from that airport?  Is there a solution? Will I have to update FSX airport data to make this work? I also have FSDreamTeam's FT. Lauderdale airport scenery, and the runways have been re-assigned and a new AFCAD was released. Doesn't the AFCAD re-do the airport info in FSX? So how does one go about making that change known to software like EFB?

You'll need new scenery or a new AFCAD, then run the Simulator Update in the Data Provider.  Then all will be good.

You can also look at page 4 of the user manual to see how to edit the runway.txt file for updates.

Got it! Thanks, guys. Senility and panic overcame me temporarily. :blush:
