Freeware to convert Q400 flightplans

Recommended Posts

Just ran across a freeware written by Bernd Laass to convert flightplans for the Dash 8 Q400.

 

You can get it here:

The readme says:

 

 

This is a helper for those who are using the Majestic Dash8 and are looking for something that makes it easier to get flightplans into the FMS. Especially more complex plans with many waypoints are a real challenge to one's patience when typing them in to FMS directly. The program is a hobby project and so for sure it is not perfect. FPRConverter currently accepts input from Aerosoft's Flightsim Commander (I use version 9.6) XML output or just text input as waypoint lists or routings as they are available from i.e. RouteFinder or similar.

 

I tried it out exporting a XML from my Flightsim Commander and using this tool to convert it for my Q400. It worked very well and saves me a lot of tedious typing.
