Flight plan changes when I click file..

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!  I am sure I am doing something wrong here..  please help.

So, here is what I am doing...

I launch Pilot2ATC and make a simple IFR flight plan.  I have it do it automatically.  Then, I click validate.  Then, I export for the flight sim (MSFS).  Then, I load that plan in the sim.  Get in plane, connect the ATC and then when I click file.. the plan seems to change at the last min!  This now means I cant fly it and need to re-enter everything in the FMC.. witch with the smaller GA planes is a PITA.  

Why does this happen sometimes and not other times?

I thought by me clicking on "validate" it would ensure the plan "works" and would be safe to export at that point?

Thanks!

When you file the flight plan, it is validated again and if something like the winds have changed to favor a different runway, the plan will change.  You can stop this by checking the option to "Force Pilot Runway Selection".  This way, once the runway is selected, it won't change. 

Also, be sure the "..Random ..." ATC options are all unchecked.
