  1. After entering flightplan and requesting IFR clearance, myflightplan starts reclyling. (cursor moves from waypoint to waypoint down the list)
  2. Hi everyone, I have been thinking a lot recently about creating an eFPL using either Adobe's solution of fillable documents, or some other programs to create a template of some kind that could then be applied on a single type of flight plan format to calculate things as: fuel over waypoint based on the entered block fuel, times and such things. However I hit a rock right in the beginning of this great idea. I don't see how on earth I could even create a template that would fit an ever-changing environment where the numbers and waypoints and times and fuel values are all variable and based on that calculate anything. So this is how I ended up writing here on Avsim to see whether there are any people here with great ideas on what program that can be used to create a template that would look for certain things and based on that calculate anything. I think you got my point of what I am trying to achieve. As I am working as a Cabin Crew I have got my best best friend as an FO and he has shown me many times his electronic flight plan and how things work on it. Obviously I won't be able to achieve such a solution as that's on an iPad and I (while have learned programming back in High School - very basic stuff) won't be able to achieve that kind of automation in calculations. So if anyone's got any idea, whatever it be like please feel free to comment as I am very curious about it, and obviously I have a huge amount of time to kill these days as I am temporarily laid off for months. Thanks
  3. Hello, I have imported the P3d .pln file below into Pilot2Atc by the "Impt" button. I have loaded the same file into p3d and all waypoints are displayed correct there (LOAV,SV001(user waypoint),TF(NDB),LOGP) Result in Pilot2Atc after loading the file (showing only the airport waypoints and a generated TOD) LOAV VOSLAU TOD PT ---- LOGP PINKAFELD (I did not found an option to upload a screenschote or attachment here) This is a user waypoint created within P3D V4.4 and can not be read by Pilot2Atc <ATCWaypoint id="WP1"> <ATCWaypointType>User</ATCWaypointType> <WorldPosition>N47° 40' 57.422706",E16° 12' 21.330246",+005000.00</WorldPosition> </ATCWaypoint> This is a user waypoint created by my hand and is reading by Pilot2Atc <ATCWaypoint id="SV001"> <WorldPosition>N47° 53' 49.671163",E16° 13' 48.039600",+005000.00</WorldPosition> </ATCWaypoint> P3D v4.4 will also read coordinates in decimal format Application which writes their exports with decimal coordinates to the ".pln" format will not work in Pilot2Atc It would be great if you are able to improve the compartibility to the pln format. If so I would like to write a tool for exporting and importing flight planes for the Flight1 GTN using "pln" format as intermediate format, so i can create my short flight plane within Flight1 GPS and exporting it to Pilot2Atc, getting ATC Thanks and best regards LOAV_LOGP.pln <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AceXML" version="1,0"> <Descr>Import plan from Skyvector</Descr> <FlightPlan.FlightPlan> <Title> </Title> <FPType>VFR</FPType> <RouteType>LowAlt</RouteType> <CruisingAlt>5000</CruisingAlt> <DepartureID>LOAV</DepartureID> <DepartureLLA>47.964444 , 16.259444,+765.0</DepartureLLA> <DestinationID>LOGP</DestinationID> <DestinationLLA>47.387778 , 16.110833,+</DestinationLLA> <Descr>LOAV, LOGP</Descr> <DeparturePosition>08</DeparturePosition> <DepartureName>LOAV</DepartureName> <DestinationName>LOGP</DestinationName> <AppVersion> <AppVersionMajor>10</AppVersionMajor> <AppVersionBuild>3000</AppVersionBuild> </AppVersion> <ATCWaypoint id="LOAV"> <ATCWaypointType>AIRPORT</ATCWaypointType> <WorldPosition>47.964444 , 16.259444,+765.0</WorldPosition> <ICAO> <ICAORegion>LO</ICAORegion> <ICAOIdent>LOAV</ICAOIdent> </ICAO> </ATCWaypoint> <ATCWaypoint id="SV001"> <ATCWaypointType>User</ATCWaypointType> <WorldPosition>47.897133 , 16.230011,+5000</WorldPosition> <ICAO> <ICAORegion> </ICAORegion> <ICAOIdent>SV001</ICAOIdent> </ICAO> </ATCWaypoint> <ATCWaypoint id="TF"> <ATCWaypointType>NDB</ATCWaypointType> <WorldPosition>47.840997 , 16.281731,+5000</WorldPosition> <ICAO> <ICAORegion>LO</ICAORegion> <ICAOIdent>TF</ICAOIdent> </ICAO> </ATCWaypoint> <ATCWaypoint id="LOGP"> <ATCWaypointType>AIRPORT</ATCWaypointType> <WorldPosition>47.387778 , 16.110833,+</WorldPosition> <ICAO> <ICAORegion>LO</ICAORegion> <ICAOIdent>LOGP</ICAOIdent> </ICAO> </ATCWaypoint> </FlightPlan.FlightPlan> </SimBase.Document>
  4. First, I want to say thanks as I have started using this program this week and it adds the final layer of immersion I have been missing in my flight sims. I was wondering if you have had a chance to look at the SDK for exporting flight plans to the new CRJ that was released on Aerosoft this week? I have purchased this aircraft and its a pain to have to manually program the fmc. Keep up the good work! -Brian
  5. Hey everyone I recently bought the Mindstar G1000 add-on for my FSX. Unfortunately, I had to find out that the flight plan function is causing some trouble, a CTD to be more precise. After having read some topics on this forum and also having tested a few things (new fsx.cfg etc.), I decided to reinstall my FSX (by following PMDG's guide - so it's definitively a clean installation). After the re-installation, I only installed some pay-ware sceneries and of course the Mindstar G1000. Sadly, that didn't fix the problem for me. The error always appeared to be the same both before and afterwards. Here the description: I open FSX, select the default C172 equipped with Mindstar's G1000 on a random airport and hit "start flight". In the cockpit after starting the engine, I open the flight plan window on the MFD and dial in a random waypoint. When pressing ENT to accept it, FSX freezes and closes. I get the following application error: Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.61637.0, time stamp: 0x46fadb14 Faulting module name: API.DLL, version: 10.0.61637.0, time stamp: 0x46fadb58 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x000179f2 Faulting process id: 0x10b8 Faulting application start time: 0x01d2e5f2a4b681ce Faulting application path: C:\FSX\fsx.exe Faulting module path: C:\FSX\API.DLL Report Id: 33e93874-51e6-11e7-879b-40167eaccbd3 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this problem, because the Mindstar G1000 is such a great add-on and it’s a pity if some features would be refused to me. Kind regards Fabian Weiß
  6. Let me add my voice to the Import flight plan problem. Windows 10 64, RealityXP GTN750 v 6.41.1 (software with XPlane 11.11 My problem is not about the flight plan files having the wrong format, it's about not seeing ANY files in the FPLN directory. I put the sample gfp file in the "C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\GTN\FPLN" folder and then do the sequence Flight Plan | Menu | Catalog | Menu | Import but all I see are "Delete All" and greyed out "Delete Pending". I do not see the "Import" button. I've read all the posts I can find here. I read thru the link for "GTN Flight Plan Import Process ?". I've set an environment variable to GTNSIMDATA="C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\GTN" Still no Import button. What to try next? John
  7. I'm looking for flight plans that I can follow. Like flying Alaska as a mail carrier, for example, or flying through Africa as a doctor. Mainly with small planes. does anyone have an idea where I can find such adventures? Because I don't like just fly through the area, senselessly. Thanks a lot. Machete2punkt0
  8. I seem to recall that on the real-world GTN 750 it is possible to modify a flight plan by dragging and dropping the magenta line (dropping onto a waypoint/VOR etc). My RXP GTN doesn't seem to allow this.
  9. Hello everyone. Before start, i'm not going to mess anything up... Very nice airplane and Navigraph extension is the best, BUT... Flight plan created --> Took off --> ATC gave me a direct --> pressed direct button on the MFD and typed a FIX --> Oh no! Where is my flight plan??? I tried to Activate Leg by pressing ENT while the desired waypoint was selected.. but nothing. Didn't work. Any chance, any help?? thank you very much Simone Apicella
  10. Hello, I have spent half-a-day testing and have to report that I cannot get any plane with a builtin G1000 to follow the flight plan I enter into a "floating" GTN750. I am in VR as well. However, planes with the older GPS models 530 will follow the flight plan just fine. The G1000 error isn't noted until there is a change of direction. The plane starts the turn but in the middle stops turning and just goes straight. If I click on NAV on the G1000, it will return to the new magenta line and finish the turn. I must select NAV after every change of course. At first I thought that this was an error only with new planes with modified G1000s like the Epic or King Air 350, but when I started testing on the C172 I found that all G1000s react the same - and all the 530s work. WHAT'S NEW: I have just begun to notice that, when the 750 is following a flight plan, the G1000 or 530 also show a magenta line and the name of the next waypoint.... but only a line to the next waypoint, not the rest of the flight plan. They didn't used to do that. When we get to a turn, the G1000/530 puts up a new magenta line and the next waypoint. But halfway through the turn the plane exits NAV mode and starts going straight. I have to tell PlaneCommand "LNAV" or push the NAV button on the G1000. Then we go back to the magenta line. So it appears that the 750 is controlling the plane fine when LNAV is initiated and when the flight plan has a change of course, the 750 gives the new waypoint and magenta line to the G1000 but forgets to say "follow the magenta line". I use the 750 in ALL my planes and I never noticed this before because I used to just set a direct destination on the 750 and then use graphical editing to add new waypoints. The plane always followed the course including the turns, but putting the waypoints into a flight plan isn't working. Is there something that I am missing in the settings???????
  11. I am new to flight sim but am enjoying learning things. I watched a YouTube video of a real airbus pilot taxing and takeoff and using headings and auto pilot to have a much smoother flight than holding the controls and using trim. What I'm wanting to learn is how to use the rest of it. How do I input a flight plan without the main menu? How do I find the airport frquency (I cam find the airport with headings but not frequencies). Ultimately I think a guide on different systems and how to use them is what I'm looking for. Any help is appreciated- thanks.
  12. I'm running the PMDG 737NGX with P3D V4, Active Sky, and Navigraph Data. Just wondering what is the best way to create flight plan routes and load the route into the FMC? I know there are several software programs out there that do this, just wondering what others are using and what would work best with the PMDG FMC. Thanks John Swanson
  13. I'm currently experimenting with the trial version of P2A, and certainly like what I'm seeing so far. I was trying to build my first, very simple (or so I thought), VFR flight plan. It is a pretty straight line flight from KRDU to a private field up in Boone, NC. The field does have an official designation that can be found on SkyVector, etc., which is NC14. I like flying into small airports like this, scattered around the country. Anyway the problem is whether I enter NC14 via the +Wpt data entry screen, or by right clicking on the map, P2A denotes it as a custom user defined waypoint, and I could not find a way to designate it as an airport. Therefore, when I try to validate/save the flight plan it just gives me an error message saying I must have a departure and destination airport. Is there a way to force it to be accepted as an airport designation? Thanks
  14. Just need an answer before I start mixing files... Thanks Benny K
  15. Hello I am using version 2.6.4, my question is can I use a userpoint as the departure or arrival airport when I try to export the flight plan I get this warning message. Has anyone managed to do it? Thanks
