Flight Plan Format


Recommended Posts

Hi Volker,

I have a small query regarding the file format of FSC Flight Plans. I believe the only format in which the flight plans can be saved is (.pln).

This is fine when I am using standard Microsoft aircraft and a number of other add-ons.

However my favourite aircraft is the PMDG B737NG which has a very good Flight Management Computer (FMC) which allows a complete flight plan to be added to the FMC via the "coroute" key in the CDU.

Unfortunately only flight plans with the (.rte) format are accepted and not the ones produced by FSC.

Is there any way that FSC flight plans can be compiled in the (.rte) format.

If not does anyone know of a utility program which can make a suitable conversion.

My setup comprises Windows 7 (64bit) along with FSX with SP2.
