!! HELP ME !! - READ ICAO CODE OF ORIGIN AND DESTINY


Recommended Posts

I AM DESIGNING IN VB A FLIGHT REGISTRY, BUT NOT AS TO FIND THE CODES ICAO OF THE ORIGIN AIRPORTS AND DESTINY WITHIN THE FLIGHT PLAN IN FS :oops:

Please find your "Caps Lock" key and turn it off.

FS plans are simple text files. You can read the plan and find the information you want quite easily. For example, in this short plan:

[flightplan]
AppVersion=9.1.40901
title=EGCC to EGCK
description=EGCC, EGCK
type=IFR
routetype=3
cruising_altitude=6000
departure_id=EGCC, N053° 21' 54.0756", W002° 17' 05.1699", +000256.99
departure_position=GATE 241
destination_id=EGCK, N053° 05' 59.7127", W004° 20' 32.3401", +000000.99
departure_name=Manchester
destination_name=Caernarfon
waypoint.0=, EGCC, , EGCC, A, N053° 21' 54.0756", W002° 17' 05.1699", +000256.99, 
waypoint.1=EG, WAL, , WAL, V, N053° 23' 30.9855", W003° 08' 04.0008", +000000.00, 
waypoint.2=, EGCK, , EGCK, A, N053° 05' 59.7127", W004° 20' 32.3401", +000000.99,

you can readily see that the departure ID is given as the first field in the line "departure_id" and the destination ID is given as the first field in the line "destination_id".

I am going to follow your advice, will look for the text file with the plan :D

It's the file with the name you gave it (or the same as the Flight name if saved with that), but with file type 'PLN'. You'll find all of your FLT and PLN files in the "My Documents\Flight Simulator Files" folder.

Regards

Pete
