leg types

Recommended Posts

hey can any admin confirm if all 23 leg types that go into the navigation database are fully implemented in the NGX? 

for example, cf legs, rf legs, df legs, theres loads and I know they are getting less and less used even though majority of airports in Turkey still have it but still its good to have it implemented (if its not implemented)

i know other aircraft devs started doing it, but i couldnt find any info regarding this if someone can confirm it for me it will be perfect, thank you

PMDG  has not implemented the ARINC 424 navigation data standard.  Normal stuff like course to fix or direct to fix can be done of course, that's not depended on the standard; however, radius to fix can only be approximated using pseudo waypoints.  It's crude but it gets the job done.  PMDG has plans to incorporate ARINC 424, but it means a significant change in the code underlying the FMS used across all products.  I don't know when they plan to do it.... I was very disappointed it didn't get done with the -8 so maybe the next major product release.... maybe a new 737?

Just some side information...

There is only one flight sim aircraft I know of that will do a proper Radius to Fix, and that's the Majestic Dash 8 Q400 (and it's spot on).  I've heard that there are one or two others, but I don't have them and therefore can't verify this.

Roger got, I was actually disappointed too not seeing it in the 748 but i do understand its literally changing the fmc code from scratch but it would be good to see it getting implemented

Yh, I read about the dash and as you said it is spot on even though I dont have it, I might need to invest init, these stuff defiantly make flight simming more immersive for me
