Using Home Grown Airports

Recommended Posts

Hello,I'm a new user of RC3 and I have a problem which is major to me. I have an airport that I made for FS98 and have imported over to FS2K2. It is located right behind my real house(Lat/Long) and I use this airport as my home airport when flying GA aircraft. How can I get RC3 to recognize it as a valid airport either controlled or uncontrolled?FS2K2 recognizes it, FSNav 4.5 recognizes it and I even made changes to it with AFCAD. I make and fly FS flight plans from and to it fully controlled, but when I try to use RC3, it doesn't seem to recognize it and give me the menus described on pages 25 and 26 in the RC Manual.I really would like to be able to fly in and out of it using RC3. Is there any way? If not, would it be possible to add that to a WISH list of things for the future?Any help will be appreciatted.Thanksmaxsdadhttp://jdtllc.com/images/RCsupporter.jpg

JD,Can you tell me what program I need to get access to rcfreq.csv? When I try to open that file I get (windows cannot open this file: To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it).I have changed the other files and have hit a wall now.Thanksmaxsdadhttp://jdtllc.com/images/RCsupporter.jpg

JD,You are absolutly right. I was trying to open it right from the file location in RC3. I ended up using MicroSoft Excel on my old computer to make the change. I just tried wordpad directly and it worked. I didn't think about that before.Thanks againmaxsdadhttp://jdtllc.com/images/RCsupporter.jpg

editing that file with excel, can cause damage. i suggest going back to the original file, opening with wordpad, and making your changesjd
