"....missing an associated flight plan file "

Splash One

Recommended Posts


I am still getting to know FSC but have enjoyed creating realistic and fun flight plans for training at my local Airports, here in Australia.

However, I encounter the following message when attempting to load a FS9 flight saved with a flight plan created with FSC.

Error Message reads as:

" The flight you are trying to open is missing an associated flight plan file. The flight will be loaded without a flight plan."

""G:\My Documents\Flight Simulator Files\YMES(SALE)_22""

But if I click "YES" and continue to load my flight, I can still successfully import my flight plan by using the above drop down menu "Flights" > "Flight Planer...."

Hence, the flight has to be started first and paused, then the flight plan imported separately.

Upon further experimentation, I found that this occurs when I use custom defined way points ...."Fix 01..Fix 02"" or my "User Waypoints".

But, If I use official way points like VOR's, NDB's, GPS or intersections, the flight plan will have no problems being saved and then loaded with the created flight.

Thinking the problem might have been the User defined way points, I used the FSC database manager, but this had no effect solving the problem.

My best solution is importing the flight plan after loading the flight.

Can anyone confirm that this is a problem?


My Setup:

1. FS2004(FS91)

2. FSUIPC (Version 3.82)

3. FS Commander (8.4) and Database Manager (8.4 )

4. Aerosoft version

5. Operating System Xp(x32)
