Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Unrealistic route and more

Recommended Posts

Hi, with PFPX I set a route from LICC to LIMC.


As you can see from the image below, after the KALMO point, the route continues south, up to the TORTU point, and then continues north again. In reality, such a route can not be true. Because PFPX behaves like that (obviously AIRAC are perfectly updated).

Another question: can someone explain to me the meaning of these two warnings (in particular the second one)?

Last question: save the flight plan for A320 / A321 Professional. I read here that you just need to change the "Airbus Extended" path to C:\Users\YOU\Documents\Aerosoft\Airbus\FlightPlans\, but there's nothing there, I have flight plans in E:\Documents\Aerosoft\General\A3XX Flightplans, is my folder correct?

 

Thank you.

Have you installed David's RAD Restrictions and Directs from the download section ? I guess not from your image.

 

Italy is Free Route Airspace and there is no official data source available to the community, David's files help overcome this issue but cannot resolve all routes, that is down to the user.

 

With Davids files here is my return, valid on first pass:

This post is outdated regarding the A3xx Pro. The correct path for the Pro series is

....\Documents\Aerosoft\General\A3XX Flightplans

Hi srcooke, I would like some information about your kind answer:

  • I have downloaded the files you have shown me (what are they?), but I do not know where to put them.
  • I tried to insert a flight plan from LIMC to LICC but if I click on "Find" in the Route section, PFPX shows me this window. I do not understand, I'm not an expert.

They are files containing direct links for free route airspace, updated restrictions and airport data to aid correct auto-routing.

 

The included readme file explains exactly how to proceed with there installation.

Hi srcooke, I thank you for the help and now the routes seem decidedly more realistic, but I still have a doubt.
If the LIMC-LICC flight is indeed more realistic (see figure below), the one from LICC to LIRF seems more bizarre. In the image that I enclose, in fact, before arriving at the Rome airport, the route follows a strange and absolutely unrealistic ride. Can you explain why? Thank you.

Have you selected an STS code in the aircraft editor or submitted an invalid code manually ?

 

Copy/paste here your entire ATC submission for validation

Hi Stephen.

I send you the ATC submission (Airbus A320 Flight Factor).

Thank you very much for your help.

Manuel

The Special Flight Status 'STS' setting 'VFPS' is invalid and nor is it from the PFPX options.

 

You are entering this manually ?

When you prefile a flightplan on VATSIM it adds a *vfps* at the beginning of your remarks section on the network. This stands for Vatsim Flightplan Prefile System if I’m not mistaken.

No idea why you would add this into a Pfpx flightplan.

Maybe the user got confused by this and tried to force PFPX to add it always? 

It is certainly not related to any real world procedure, thus it fails your validation.

I have no idea how this came about in the plan.
I removed "VFPS" from the STS and the error no longer appeared.
Thank you very much for the help.

May be on IVAO. Indeed "VFPS" isn't a option.
I removed "VFPS" from the STS and it works.
Thank you very much for the help.
