.fpl flightplan format?

Recommended Posts

I know there is a example file LFATLFRG.fpl, but that is for a different country (not US), and I am having a hard time creating one for U.S airports. When I try to import it, it complains about waypoint errors. Also, I am not sure why the example file contains lat/lon for the waypoints. If these are already in the database, why are they also specified in the file? Can someone share a simple flightplan file for the US? Thanks.

Try using LittleNavMap to create the flightplan and then export it to the Garmin GNS format.

 

Example:

 

<file-description>Created by Little Navmap Version 2.2.4 (revision 5ae9b03) on 2019 10 02T20:52:04</file-description>
  <created>2019-10-03T03:52:04Z</created>
  <waypoint-table>
    <waypoint>
      <identifier>CYCD</identifier>
      <type>AIRPORT</type>
      <country-code>CY</country-code>
      <lat>49.052223</lat>
      <lon>-123.870277</lon>
