  1. Version 1.0.0

    160 downloads

    Recommend use with AIRAC 1806 or newer for best results. Changelog Update: AltCap, RAD and Directs Update: adjustments in RAD and Directs to ensure correct routing - e.g.: Klagenfurt LOWK departures via Croatia FIR/UIR Belfast/Aldergrove EGAA departures via Scotland FIR/UIR or Shanwick Oceanic FIR/UIR across London FIR/UIR via HON VOR Edit: Just a typo fix in changelog description. Download package remains the same. Regards David
  2. Moin, onlineflightplanner.org , genauso wie rfinder.asalink.net, ist mit Vorsicht zu behandeln, da er ohne Beachtung der RAD Regeln einfach eine Route zwischen den verfügbaren SIDs und STARs bastelt. Diese sind oftmals nicht valide. Wenn man wert auf valide Routen für Europa legt bzw. Online in diesem Gebiet unterwegs ist, sollte man zumindest diese Beiden meiner Meinung nach eher meiden. Gruß David
  3. Version 1.0.0

    439 downloads

    Recommend use with AIRAC 1806, 1807 or 1808 for best results. Changelog Update: AltCap, RAD and Directs Update: adjustments in RAD and Directs to ensure correct routing - e.g.: across Italy or to/from italian airports (LIM* , LIR*) Bukarest LROP / LRBS departures via Hungary FIR/UIR Ibiza LEIB and Palma de Mallorca LEPA departures via Bordeaux FIR/UIR Graz LOWG departures via Croatia FIR/UIR Louisville KSDF SIDs/STARs linked with J-airways Known issues: Routes to/from italian airports sometimes use airways instead of directs, regardless of rules in RAD.dat. This is due to guidlines of italian Air Navigation Service Provider ENAV for entry points to or exit points from free route airspace.Those routes are not invalid per se. In most cases you can just replace the airway between mentioned points with DCT in order to pass validation. Regards David
  4. Version 1.0.0

    Recommend use with AIRAC 1806 or 1807 for best results. Changelog Update: AltCap, RAD and Directs Update: removed Free Route Airspace Bulgaria till October AIRAC Update: adjustments in RAD and Directs to ensure correct routing - e.g.: Cologne/Bonn EDDK arrivals via Brussels UIR across Italy or to/from italian airports (LIB* , LIC* , LIE* , LIP*) Switzerland LS** arrivals via Spain/Portugal UIR Paris CDG LFPG departures via Switzerland UIR Side note: adjustments in RAD and Directs for airports LIM* and LIR* might be included in next update 1808 in July. Known issues: Routes to/from italian airports sometimes use airways instead of directs, regardless of rules in RAD.dat. This is due to guidlines of italian Air Navigation Service Provider ENAV for entry points to or exit points from free route airspace. Those routes are not invalid per se. In most cases you can just replace the airway between mentioned points with DCT in order to pass validation. Regards David
  5. 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

  9. Beside Winrar 7-zip can also be used.
  10. 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
