ICAO CODE JOHANNESBURG

Recommended Posts

FS 2004 (FS9), FSUIPC 3.999z, Aerosoft FSC 9.2.2, Build 15.03.2013, Windows XP_SP 3 (32bit),

AIRAC 1305, AES 2.30, iFly-737NG-V3.0+FP, iFly737-800, PMDG 737NG + 747-400, PSS A340

Hallo Volker,

der ICAO Code von Johannesburg hat sich wohl geändert von FAJS zu FAOR. Beim erstellen einer Route verlangt der FSC FAJS soweit OK,

die Flugzeuge von PMDG z.B. erwarten FAOR. Beim Laden der Flugpläne erscheint der Hinweis "NOT IN DATA BASE". Könnt ihr das beim nächsten Programm Up-Date ändern.

As you know, the ICAO code has been changed from FAJS to FAOR for the subject airport.

Loading any DEP/ARR FAJS FS Commander flightplan in FMS, FMC and/or MCDU results in "NOT IN DATA BASE" rendering flightplan rejected.

Can you possibly update proper new FAOR code for efficient operation of flight management systems relevant to Johannesburg airport.

Many thanks in advance for your kind cooperation,

Gruß Reinhold

Hallo Reinhold,

da es bis zum 08. Juni keinen Support gibt (siehe hier: http://forum.simflig...t-kein-support/),

möchte ich versuchen, Dein Problem zu lösen.

Der FSC holt sich die Informationen bezügl. der ICAO-Codes aus dem Flusi (beim Datenbankupdate per FSCDbManager.exe)

Also musst Du den ICOA-Code im entsprechenden AFCAD-File selber ändern. (http://www.air-sourc...opic.php?t=6188).

Reinhold,

the problem ist that FSC takes all airport related data from the sceneries in FSX. And as long as you do not have a payware/freeware scenery for Johannesburg giving FSC the actual ICAO code, FSC will use the code given by the default FSX files.

The other problem is that you cannot "remove" an airport from FSX very easily at all.

Using ADE9x or something similar, it's a matter of seconds to change an ICAO code, but that will not remove FAJS, it will only add FAOR on top of it. You can also remove all the visible aspects of FAJS, so all you will have left is a marker saying where it was, but that marker, unfortunately, cannot be removed.

It would, however, resolve your issue everywhere but the FSC map, internal, GPS, etc - basically anything that shows an airport position.

Just to prove the point, I've attached an ADE bgl file to this post. Unzip the bgl file and place it in FSX\Addon Scenery\Scenery - which should force it to overwrite the default FAJS. Rescan airports in FSC and you should see FAOR, but you'll also almost certainly see FAJS below it.

Hi Ian and mopperle,

thanks for Your quick solution, but ...

FS 2004 (FS9)...etc

Your above mentioned troubleshooting affect the FSX.

Kind regards, Michael

Gah. Wrong sim. :(

All the same applies, though, except that I need to install FS9 and the SDK and do the same again for that sim. Back later! :)

Edit: try the attached... It still needs to go in \addon scenery\scenery and you'll probably still get two airports overlaid, unfortunately. It's worth trying, though.

I suspect if you type in "FAJS", though, you'll find it hiding underneath. You may well have some AI traffic issues, if you use that, because the traffic will all go to FAJS, while you're flying to FAOR, so you might get some interesting experiences on approach.

Cheers,

Ian P.
