    Missing Sids

    Volker......... In creating a flight plan of CYUL (Montreal) to CYHX (Halifax) I noticed that there were no Sids for CYUL. I contacted Navigraph and they responded that they were showing 2 Sids, KIPAX4 and TRUDO2 in their current database. Also, in creating a reverse flight, I found no Sids in Halifax. ?? Jack
  2. Volker.............. Are there any plans to include the new Aerosoft Airbus extended similar to the check marks for PMDG, Lvl D etc. when saving flight plans? Jack

    9.2.2

    Volker......... Never mind. Problem solved by itself somehow. Version 9.2.2 running OK. Obviously, as usual, I had done something dumb. Jack

    9.2.2

    Volker......... Downloaded the 9.2.2 file and installed as per instructions (if you have 9.1 just install .exe file). Did that but now, cannot open FSC. I'm sure we'll get this strightened out but I don't know how at this point. Jack Fentress
  5. Volker........ As discussed, not a problem. Just one of those things. Jack
  6. Volker.......... I've been wondering why, after constructing a flight plan from KSFO/KSAN, that despite entering all the data corrrectly, I was landing 2/3rds osf the way down the runway. This also happened no matter where I started from. Aircraft used is PMDG 737 NGX. I checked the real life data and found tha the elevations for KSAN are as follows: Runway 9 - 14 feet Runway 27 - 16 feet Problem seems to be that the FSC flight plans list Runway 27 elevation at 65 feet. That would seem to be the problem unless I've missed something. I didn't check Runway 9 since I don't use it. Could that be the problem and could it be adjusted? Jack Fentress
  7. Volker..... Just an fyi - Ricardo from LatinVFR responded about the KSAN elevation question. He says that Runway 27 is a LOC ILS runway with no glide slope data. Therefore, autoland is not a possibility on this runway and to change it would not be realistic. To land on this runway,basically, is a manually handled. Runway 9 is a full ILS runway with autoland posibilities. Basically. land on Runway 9, take off on Runway 27. Works for me. Jack
  8. Volker............. Contacted Navigraph about the apparent problem. We'll see what happens. Jack
  9. Volker........ Will do. Thanks for that. Best regards, Jack
  10. Volker......... Yes, I knew your thumbnail pic data was correct but what I was referring to was the actual flight plan data. I've attached a pic of the flight plan KSFOKSAN that I've been using. As you can see, the runway 27 altitude is listed at 65. There's no indication of 13 or 14 feet elevation that I can find. Jack

    Airbus 320 Extended

    Volker........... I kind of thought this might be a difficult one considering how difficult the aircraft itself is. You know I'm a very patient person. (lol) Regards, Jack

    Anchorage Sids question

    Volker.......... Ah! I understand. Not a problem really, although using runway 7 (L or R) would have been more convenient if it was possible to use a SID. Just goes to show that the world is not a perfect place. Not even the Flight Sim world. (lol) Jack
  13. Volker.......... I've just noticed that the Sids for runways 7L and 7R at Anchorage (PANC) don't register when either is selected. The others listed show up OK. Anyway to correct this? Jack

    Anchorage Sids question

    Volker.......... OK. That will do just fine. Is that basically a Navigraph problem or with the scenery maker? No big deal, just curious. Regards, Jack

    Trouble creating Flight Plan

    Thanks to Volker's help, problem solved. Jack
  16. Well, here's a first. At least for me. When creating a Flight Plan I'm no longer able to select a departure or destination city. I just am unable to activae. Has anyone else had this type of problem? If so how was it solved? I'm stumped. Jack Fentress

    Trouble creating Flight Plan

    Volker......... I used the normal steps to create a flight plan and was not allowed to select a destination airport after I selected one. I "hit" the button but nothing happened. Yes, I tried with the Airport button both ways but the result was the same. There was no indication when selecting Flight Sim Commander that there was a problem with any of the FSC files or anything else for that matter. Jack

    KCRW - Charleston, W.Va.

    For those who might be interested in flying into this airport, Volker has fixed the problem. KCRW now shows ILS frequencies. Jack
  19. Volker......... Although FSC (V 9.1.1) shows that runways 5 & 23 have no ILS frequencies, there actualy are frequencies for these runways - 110.30 for both 5 & 23. Any way to include them? Jack Fentress

    KCRW - Charleston, W.Va.

    Volker......... Done!
  21. I have been having some trouble in loading FSC plans to the Quality Wings 757. I know it would have been a much smoother and successful process if during the saving of a FSC flight plan that QW aircraft could have been loaded. I had thought that they (QW) would have to arrange for themselves to be included similarly as is PMDG, Level D and I Fly. However, Ernie Alston informed me that you (FSC) could add them at any time without contacting them if you wished to. With a couple of more additions of theirs coming out in the coming months it seems to me, that it would be a plus for all if they were included. Is it possible? Would you consider Quality Wings? .............and by the way, I'm in no way connected to Quality Wings except as a satisfied customer. Same as I am with Fight Sim Commander. Jack Fentress

    Missing saved flight plans

    Volker........... Done!. Jack
  23. Here's something different (at least for me). After opening FSC, going to "open flight plans", there is nothing there. They've all disappeared. As far as I can see I've done nothing that would delete all of the saved flight plans. By making new plans and saving, they do show up but the previous plans seem to have disappeared. Anyone had this happen? Is there a solution other than recreating all plans? In checking various aircraft, those plans were not affected, only in FSC itself. Jack Fentress

    Missing saved flight plans

    Volker.......... The only one I can find is fscini.old. I can't find a way to attach it to this reply. It says I can't upload this type of file. Jack

    Missing saved flight plans

    Volker........... Yes, I'm running Win7/64 bit. When FSC was installed I did check off "run as administrator". FYI, I have Windows system files on drive C: and Flight Simulator X on drive E:. FSC is installed on drive C: within the Aerosoft program and not in the Program files(x86) location. Within Aerosoft, the flight plans are there and also in the various aircraft so there's no problem there. They all seem to be retireveable as needed. What I was referring to was the main graphic of FSC. It's only there when I punch "open" to show saved files, that no saved flight plans show. As I mentioned, as I update and make new flight plans and I save, those do continue to show up. It's only the previous ones that disappeared at that location (only). I read the document as you suggested and I'm pretty sure I installed as required. I've had the program for quite a while and even after upgrading to version 9.1.1 I've had no problems until this thing appeared (or disappeared). Having said all of that, FSC does run with no problems other than what I mentioned and as time goes on, that will only be a memory. Still don't know why. Must be magic. Jack
