EFB Runway database update

Recommended Posts

I have the latest airac installed for PMDG, but the runway database is still outdated in the EFB (ex. RW 14/32 at PANC instead of 15/33). Is there a separate update for this?

The EBF will scan the scenery files you have, and this has nothing to do at all with navdata used by the FMS.  If you have the default PANC then the scenery files will be 14/32.  The latest Aerosoft PANC for P3Dv4 has the correct runway numbers.

You'll find this a common occurrence so it helps to understand what comes from the scenery and what comes from navdata.

The EFB / ND database takes its information directly from the scenery AFCAD, which may not be current. If you position your aircraft on the threshold of runway 14/15, which numbers do you see painted there when looking out the windscreen?
