FMC Message: RWY (Insert Runway #) N/A

Recommended Posts

In the NGX 737-800, every time I put the destination airport EGPH (UK2000 Edinburgh) and LOWS (Digital Design Salz), I get the message RWY (Insert here) N/A. How can I fix this. I am using the latest AIRAC from Navigraph, and I tried using makerunways.exe. I heard that you can fix this by deleting the Airport_Runways file in the Navdata folder for p3d....but I dont have a file like that in my Nav folder for p3d v4, any help?

The NGX doesn't use that file, if I'm recalling correctly, so you won't find it unless you have the 777 or 747 installed.

Are you using a route file generated by another source? For example: one you created a while ago, one you got from a website, or another program? If so, it could be that the information in the file doesn't match up properly. Some SIDs, for example, only work with specific runways - particularly in that area of the world.

Full names - first and last - in the forum, please.

Ah okay, So I didn't put any route in at the moment, only put in the Departure and destination, and it says EGPH or LOWS that the RWY is N/A. I didn't use any external routing.

Sounds like corrupt nav data. Have you manually altered any of the nav data files, or have you updated the nav data using a 3rd party source (navigraph or Aerosoft)?

I use the latest Navigraph AIRAC, 1806. I installed it manually, sort of, once the installer for navigraph put in the AIRAC in a separate folder, I proceeded to extract that folder into the PMDG Navdata folder, and the AIRAC showed it was working, but it might have been corrupt. I will try re installing it to see if it helped.

This is likely the problem.

Either use the manual installer method, or use the data manager (by letting it scan and not by manually setting the location, since a manually set location is likely the cause of the data ending up in the wrong spot).

Looks like Navigraph just released 1807 just as we speak, I installed it and everything is working fine. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
