  1. Presumably Global Flight Operations will have to maintain aircraft fleets for us to fly. PFPX already has the ability for its users to set up fleets of aircraft for planning flights. Will there be an interface to ensure that the separate fleets are kept in synch so that we can check out an aircraft and then create its flight plan without having to try to keep manually maintained records ?
  2. It is great to see a forum started to provide us with an ever improving suite of aircraft performance specifications for PFPX.
  3. I have installed AS-Mega-Airport-Frankfurt-20_PROF_P3DV5_V2001.zip within P3Dv5. I purchased it from SimMarket. After installation I have Mega Airport Frankfurt 20 in the D:\Program Files (x86)>Aerosoft folder. P3Dv5 displays the scenery correctly but without SODE functionality. Placing the SODE folder is my problem. I have no folder for Frankfurt in my C:\Users\speed\Documents\Aerosoft. Can you be more explicit about placing the SODE folder please? Many thanks.
  4. Hi Oliver, After failing to understand the SODE installation instructions in the Readme.txt file, your instructions above have confused me even more 😧 During installation, like Michael, I installed into my D drive. I now have Mega Airport Frankfurt Professional V5 in the Program Files (x86)\aerosoft directory. I have not installed any of my many airport sceneries into my C drive. Why are Aerosoft setting a standard which I am reluctant to follow? I cannot find an EDDFConfigTool anywhere on my PC. Can you explain, in simple terms, how I can install the SODE program on
  5. Thanks, Stephen. I was confused because I was looking within PFPX for the settings!
  6. I have the default Nav 1607 database of the base product. How do I enable PFPX to always use the current Navigraph airac cycle?
  7. I wonder how we can get a translation of the new manual. I agree that the current English manual is out of date and inadequate in some aspects. Cheers, Richard
  8. Hi Jianmin, Congratulations on making a Mandarin version manual for PFPX. Have you just translated the current English version with some adjustments, or a completely new one 'built from the ground up'? Would it be possible to get your manual reviewed by a Mandarin speaker? Kind regards, Richard
  9. With the forthcoming release of the new FSX, there is likely to be a requirement for alterations to PFPX. As a long time dependent on PFPX for its advanced capabilities, I am anxious that it continues to be a major player in my long-haul simming experiences. Are there any indications that I may continue to be supported by the product in the 'new world'?
  10. Stephen, I don't understand what you mean by 'to enter that in the advanced planner '. Where is this?
  11. Hi Stephen, Just added M628 to my restrictions as per NOTAM and then planned VIDP-OOMS. Route looks very good! Also CPDLC functionality, coming with GFO, looks timely with this NOTAM Regards, Richard
  12. How do I plan for avoiding these airspaces? Should the restrictions be downloaded automatically?
  13. I use the Update option in Navigraph to update the PFPX data. I now have the many files, including the cycle_info.txt (containing entry for cycle 1906), in C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\PFPX Data\NavData, yet PFPX still gives the database as 1607. I cannot find a way to 'steer' where it is to get its navdata data from. I cannot find any other instance of a cycle_info.txt file. I am happy for you to use a TeamViewer session if that would help.
  14. Hi Stephen, Thanks for your prompt reply. Having deleted the contents of the C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\PFPX Data\NavData\NavData folder (cycle_info.txt and navdata.nav) and rerun the Airac update and confirmed that cycle_info.txt is for cycle 1906 version 1, a restart of PFPX still shows Configuration>Database settings as 1607. What am I failing to do?
  15. I have forgotten how to get PFPX to use my current Navigraph navdata. I have Navigraph cycle 1906 installed but PFPX is only using the default 1607. How do I get PFPX to use my current navdata?
  16. Could someone unpin my pinned tutorial of the flight from Sydney to Vancouver and pin this new, current topic please? Many thanks.😄
  17. It is there - https://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=p3dfp&DLID=209084
  18. Following the popularity of my original flight planning tutorial and YouTube videos, I have now made a more detailed tutorial document in the Avsim Library under Flight Plans. You may download the document from the library.
  19. Thanks Stephen My original problem with the downloaded Q400_v1.00.per from AirlinerPerformance.net has become unnecessary as I now realise that there is the Bombardier Dash8-Q402 already present. Many thanks for your help, A very happy New Year
  20. Hi Stephen, Yes, the Q400.per is in C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\PFPX Data\AircraftTypes and renamed, as suggested by Mykyta, without the v1.00 part. In the Aircraft List window I then Add a New Aircraft (not New fromTemplate) but the dropdown does not list the Q400. But since raising this issue I realise that there is already a Bombardier Dash8-Q400 present in PFPX v2.03 as released (shown in your picture). So my query remains unresolved but at least I can plan a Q400 flight. Many thanks, A Happy New Year, Regards, Richard
  21. I have downloaded the Q400 .per file from Airliners Performance but PFPX does not list it in the dropdown for adding an aircraft. What is going wrong?
  22. Can anyone supply me with a performance file for this aircraft please? If not, a performance file for another single engine aircraft? Many thanks in anticipation.😊
