Flight Plan Headings

Recommended Posts

I have been building flight plan with FSBuild and exporting the plan to FS9 and PMDG with no problems. Recently, FSBuild's flight plans exported have different headings. The FS9 flight plan used by Radar Contact and the flight plan exported to PMDG have different headings.The navlog for flight plan KSEA J70 MLP J36 DIK J70 ABR J90 RWF MCW JVL JVL4 KORD follows. FS9 and Radar Contact's magnetic heading and course differ by 5 to 20 degrees with the flight plan exported to PMDG.Is the problem navdata (recent AIRAC updates for PMDG and FSBuild) related?

Just to confirm I put your route into FSB 2.2 and printed the navlog with export to FS9.I set a heavy at KSEA to get somed similaity, loaded the plan and viewed the FS navlog. All headings matched within a couple of degrees.Glad you found your scenery problem that caused the FS coordinates to be off.

My fix was to reformat and reinstall.!I hope FSX is less sensitive to scenery problems regarding textures, incompatibilies, effects etc. Lesson is to be careful installing sceneries!
