Available Approaches

Recommended Posts

From where does VOXATC get its available approaches?  In particular, many RNAV approaches seem to be unavailable as a choice from VOX. Can the available approaches be updated?

from my experience & tweaks, for V742 with P3D452 ...... (& I suspect / vaguely recall, for V652 with FSX),

the listed approaches are in 2 parts though it may not look that way.

in the first instance are those included in your "highest" afcad & then vectored ils & visual approaches.

so to match your charts & hence include the missing RNAV's & the latest ILS's, you need to "clear" your afcad of its existing & import the latest from FSAD.

In this you can just add those you prefer for landing runways (appropriate to the selected afcad)

arrivals (stars) are sourced from the airac.

should that arrival transition to an afcad approach, it should be a "seamless" clearance.

those fsad approaches are indentical to the airacs (if concurrent), just in bgl format for adding to the afcad.


for now, cheers

John,

Thanks for trying to help.  I'm afraid I don't understand anything you're suggesting.  I think I'll continue my current practice of ignoring VOXATC and flying the RNAV of my choice.

Thanks,

Tom

VOXATC 7.42 can obtain up to date approaches from one of two sources. Both require a Navigraph subscription. If you have a Navigraph subscription, read the section in the  VOXATC manual entitled SIDs and STARs (p 58). A better option, which gives you all the updated navdata, comms, ILS and airspaces, is what vadriver posted above. That requires an additional subscription over and above your Navigraph subscription, but in my opinion is well worth it.

Jay,

Is this correct:

Sids and Stars are updated through my Navigraph subscription. This may be why I have never noticed any missing SIDS and STARS

For updated approaches (among other things) I would have to add a subscription to FSAerodata.

Unless you update the sim with either Herve Sors's freeware or fsaerodata, your approaches are whatever the sim provides plus what is added by 3rd party airports.
