iFly and PFPX

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 I am running into a bit of difficulty. I purchased Aerosoft’s PFPX over the summer as a impulsive purchase. I do enjoy using it.

My problem is flight planning with iFly’s 737/747. I have figured out that iFly’s flight plan files are in what appears to be in a specific format different from FS2004’s native format.

So, if I start a flight, I try to load the flight plan in the FMC, I get a message saying there is no flight plan or the FMC doesn’t recognize it or something to that effect. Bottom line is I cannot load a flight plan.

When in PFPX, I create a flight using the iFly aircraft template, create a flight plan and when I export the route, the route is saved in the native FS2004 format and NOT in the iFly format. 

What this forces me to do is to enter the route manually into the FMC. With relatively short flights, I have no issue doing this but once I get into a 747 and do a long haul, then this does take quite a bit of time and effort.

I have searched high and low around the internet, my executive assistant, Ms. Google cannot point me to an definitive answer. 

Is there anyone here that uses the same product combination and had success in exporting PFPX flight plans into the iFly format? How did you do it?

Thanks in advance.

Have you asked directly to the PFPX developers?

No, perhaps I will. I just thought that someone here could offer advice.
