Parking Spot Problem

Recommended Posts

Ok, I use P2ATC to do my flight plan.  I've tried using the info box to set the parking space in the flightplan but I still end up on the runway.  Not starting in a parking spot is totally messing up my communications in P2ATC.  It seems that if it doesn't go in sequence as, clearance delivery, ground, tower etc., then the whole communications process with ATC is out the window.  When I export a flight plan to MSFS it looks good.  If I go to put in a specific parking spot the flight plan totally changes on the screen.  So how do I get the airplane in a parking spot with the flight plan intact?  It doesn't matter if it is a VFR or IFR flight plan.  Thanks for the help.

This has been discussed multiple times on this forum, the last time was just a few days ago.  You need to select your parking start point using the pulldown menu and NOT selecting via the map.

Done that multiple times and it always changes the flight plan route, and still sets me at the end of the runway.

I was just playing with this today.

Try clicking on first the blue leg of your flightplane coming out of the airport, so it gets highlighted white.

Then change to the desired parking spot in the drop down.

At least for me, this allowed me to select a parking spot without having the rest of my flight plan mangled.   

If I did not click the first leg and changed the parking spot, MSFS seemed to replan the plan.

Thanks for the tip.  I'll give that a try.  First time I've heard of that.
