  1. Hi, what's your departure time? It looks like PFPX is using this time throughout the entire route, that's being generated. Thus you won't get the shortest night route, if your departure time is prior the time the directs are available. Just tested it myself with GCTS -> EDDL and two different departure times: 2059z - VASTO UN858 SULAM DCT BAROK DCT BARDI UN873 DESAB UN867 MOKOR UN873 OBATO UM163 CTL UZ706 NVO T857 BIKMU 2100z - VASTO UN858 SULAM DCT BAROK DCT BARDI UN873 DELOG DCT TIRAV DCT GONEK DCT TABOV UM163 CTL UZ706 NVO T857 BIKMU Site note: I've just added those three night directs for testing. These are not included in the RAD Restrictions update 1806 Also in the screenshot of the RAD.dat in your initial post the times availability for those directs is set for winter time. You have to keep this in mind, when choosing a departure time during summer time. When you plan a flight e.g. SBGL -> EDDF with departure time 22:30z, PFPX could generate a route with those directs. Whereas when you actually pass DELOG, those directs would be inactive already. That's why it's not so easy to implement night directs and have still a high percentage of valid routes, generated by PFPX. It's possible, sure, but very time consuming then. Regards David

  5. Beside Winrar 7-zip can also be used.
  6. Hi Mike, Lisboa has a lower/upper border at FL195. And due to FRA the upper levels are just capped at FL245. So it's correct when PFPX displays "Upper" airways. Regards David

    RAD airac updates

    Hi Michel, I don't know where PFPX gets the revision date from. Regarding the red entries, these are outdated ones. They will be fixed with next Update 1801. Thanks for pointing that out. Regards David

  13. @Goshob PFPX can generate the real route from EK641. But in order to do so, you have to generate via Advanced Route Finder and set Min FL and Max FL to 280. That's because the real flight also maintains FL280 until iranian border, as the airway used is only available from FL160 to FL290. If you expand the "flight data chart" on FR24, you can see the altitude profile flown. Regards David
  14. EG4073 refers to FL restrictions for MANCHESTER_GROUP, MIDLANDS_GROUP, EGCN/NH/NJ/NL/NM/NO/NT/NV/SH to DUBLIN_GROUP, EICM. The so called Level capping between certain airports and airport groups hasn't been implemented to RAD yet. But it might be added to "Update 1801" - release beginning of January. Regards David
  15. Hi Wellers, I don't know where PFPX gets the revision date 25th May 16. But if you followed the readme in the download file, everything is ok. And I can assure you the RAD and Directs updates from download section contain most of the changes released by Eurocontrol every AIRAC. Why only most of them and not all? Because of the limitiations of PFPX, some changes are hard, if not impossible to add. AS PFPX is made for simulation, I would say, it can be as real as it gets only. You can post some example routes, which show validation errors + the errors, here or send me private message and I'm happy to check them. Regards David
