Having problem creating a route CYUL-LFPG

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am trying to create a flight from CYUL (Montreal) to LFPG (Paris) with PFPX. I can create a flight plan with the following route:

YUL V487 YJN V300 YSC DCT MIILS N269A JOOPY NATV GISTI DCT LESLU M142 LND UN160 NAKID UM25 LUKIP LUKI8D

I have included the PFPX flight plan file and the Prepar3d version file. 

 

My problem is when I load the .PLN file into Active Sky or PF3 the cruising altitude is FL170. I have tried creating a plan using the route>find>Upper airspace option and re-compile the flight. But the cruising altitude stays at FL170. This flight should be conducted over FL340.

 

Not sure what I am doing wrong, help would be appreciated.

Further analysis shows that when I export the route to the document folder Prepar3d v4 file, the .pln doesn't contain the right cruising altitude. It seems to repeat the first altitude to the rest of the route. In the ACA442 CYUL-LFPG (27-Mar-2019) #1 file, the cruising altitude are ok.

 

So it seem that when PFPX creates the .PLN file, the cruising altitude are incorrect.

17000ft is not the cruising altitude but the initial, limited by the victor airway.

 

Your cruise level is FL370 from YSC until a step climb.

 

EDIT: the .pln will not reflect further altitude changes, that is for you the pilot to implement.

Ok ,

 

But why is the PLN format file that I use in Active sky doesn't have any altitude cruise higher then FL170?

set optimize step climb to NONE in the plan page. The drop down box on the right in the aircraft section

Thanks you for this tip.

It seem that putting the step climb to off is solving the problem. Something I do not understand is that I only have this problem when I create a flight that cross the big pound. I did a test for a flight from CYUL (Montreal) to KSFO (San-Francisco) and that issue didn't happened. 

 

Strange

Your FL will exceed that of the Victor airway, if planning in Europe and validating at EuroControl the plan would fail.

 

There is no need to use the victor airway at all, you could use directs. The FL would not be an issue and you would get the step climbs further along the route.

PFPX is not all about auto-routing.

 

You could pick out suitable waypoints using the route editor or create your own series of directs in the airway editor to aid auto-routing ( direct links are required in this case with a vast number supplied )
