Loss of many Airports data in Papua New Guinea? (resolved)

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I have installed Papua New Guinea Scenery from ORBX(Tapini) and I tried to make a flight from AYTI(Tapini) to FANE, or Woitape.

However, I cannot find the airports except Tapini in my GTN 750.

When I make my flight plane by key in FANE or Woitape(by its name or ICAO), none of them can be found. Does that mean it doesn't include the data of those airports?

If so, is it possible to add them?

Thanks!

I get it...

I move my aircraft to everyone of these airports and "Create Waypoint" as "Airport".. right?

I guess this is the only way?

Hi,

This is a new feature with GTN trainer 6.50.x which is convenient in this case: it provides the same navigation capabilities as if the user waypoint is an airport. It won't offer any RNAV, but AFAIK it should offer the Visual Landing assistant.

Otherwise Garmin is removing runways from the WW database because they are lacking space in the file format:
