SimBrief downloading FPs

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have been using Simbrief for a while - no problems. Simbrief has always automatically downloaded Plans into my Aerosoft A320 FMS as a co-route.

In my set up the A320 looks for Plans in c:users/username/OneDrive/Documents/Aerosoft/Airbus/FlightPlans.  I dont know where this 'address' originates from but it has always worked !

FSX is running on a separate hard drive. I am unsure how 'OneDrive' fits in.

Now I am finding the Plans are going into 'downloads' just like any other downloaded files ! Sure I can copy the plan across to where they used to go,

I seem to remember Simbrief should download FPs as a .pln BUT it is now downloading as a .flp.

Now I really dont know what has happened - have I corrupted Simbrief somehow ? How does the A320 know where to search for FPs ?

As it all used to happen seamlessly I am seeking some help. Any help ? Comments etc etc.

Hello Mike,


I can see if I can help here.


First, the download of FPs from Simbrief can usually be automated via an app you may have installed known as the Simbrief Downloader. It should be available in your Windows system tray if it's installed.

I would check in that app to determine which folders the .flp and .pln files are being downloaded to. Maybe this changed. There were some SimBrief Downloader updates recently but usually it keeps the path info to the folders you have defined.


For the Aribus A320 from Aerosoft it should by default pick up FPs from this folder: C:\Users\[User Name]\Documents\Aerosoft\Airbus\FlightPlans


In your case however, it appears your Windows account is using a Onedrive location for your documents as opposed to the std User folder.

The thread here from the Aerosoft site advises that OneDrive should be switched off. I guess you can not define a custom folder for the A320 FPs  that would enable you to redirect the search to your OneDrive.
