Tutorial#1 EHAM ILS18R Runway not listed

Recommended Posts

I am having problems with the fmc, when I first tried it, it displayed nav. data out of date. I updated the nav. data with navigraph.com

 

now  with the tutorial flight I am not getting ILS 18R runway listed at EHAM arrivals.

 

I did get rwy. 18R listed

 

wazzup?

Hello,

 

If your nav database is updated with the latest AIRAC and you have missing approaches, then you can try deleting the file "ARPT_RWY.dat" located in \PMDG\NAVDATA folder and restart the sim.

Thanks Romain, I have AIRAC 1613 and I am reluctant to mess about with files, (not exactly computer savvy).

 

I have programmed a different route, from PHLI to PHNL Lihue to Honolulu with no problems.

 

I didn't fly the route, just activated and executed and the fmc accepted it no problem.

Hi,

 

I can understand that. However, the file arpt_rwy.dat in the folder \PMDG\NAVDATA is not part of the AIRAC. You can delete it (or move it elsewhere if you prefer), it will be rebuilt when you load a PMDG aircraft again.

 

You can search the forum with arpt_rwy, it is a common way to fix some issues with the nav database, like missing runways, approachs...

In PMDG>SIDSTARS folder>EHAM.txt>APPROAHES is this line "APPROACH ILS18R FIX EH621 AT OR ABOVE 2000 FIX EH622 1310 RNW 18R TRK 183 UNTIL 390 TRK 325 INTERCEPT RADIAL 280 TO FIX EH624 FIX OVERFLY EH624 2000. I am also looking at a LIDO chart which shows ILS or LOC 18R. Essentially the same chart is produced by the Dutch VACC. Don't get involved with ILS 18R RNAV. Rebuild the file that Romain mentioned.
