Aerosoft Airbus problem (32bit)

Recommended Posts

For some reason the A318-A321 FSX 32bit has a problem finding some approach transitions in the database. For example at Salzburg LOWS the RNAV33-Z both approach VIAS (KONUG) and (ETROK) don't show up in the VIAS page of the FMGC. I checked the PROC text file in navdatapro and they are included in the data. Your competitors navigraph airac works fine for this approach. I did notice they are coded differently in the text file, navdatapro use a 'H' while navigraph uses the traditional 'R' to denote an RNAV approach. I suspect this maybe the problem. Can this be looked into please?

We will report this to Lufthansa Data Systems. We are not allowed to change any data.

Thanks Mathijs hopefully it can be fixed because I really prefer using LIDO navdata.

Hi Mathijs I did some more investigating on the issue, for testing I changed the 'H' designator to 'R' in the PROC text file and all the RNAV procedures worked as expected. It seems LIDO uses 'H' for all RNP approaches in the database whle navigraph (Jepessen) uses 'R' for all RNAV and RNP. If you could have Lufthansa data system use an R instead of H that would fix the issue, or this is a long shot a hotfix for the 32bit bus so it understands that 'H' is also an RNAV or RNP approach.

For the LOWS RNP AR 33 approach I believe you will find the ARINC 424 code is indeed 'H'

I know it is suppose to be coded as 'H' but the 32bit airbus won't see the VIAS in the FMGC if it's coded with a 'H', I think that's why navigraph still use 'R' for all RNAV/RNP procedures for this aircraft and it works. Hopefully they can change it to 'R' just for this aircraft.

Any news from Lufthansa data systems yet on this?

No, but if something will chance it will always take some time. They do not edit these databases willy nilly.

Hi Mathijs just wondering does Lufthansa compile the data into 'flightsim addon' text files and send it to you guys or does someone at Aerosoft compile the data so addons can read/understand the data? To make LIDO airac work fully correct in the FSX airbus only RNAV/RNP procedures need to be changed from 'H' to 'R' type in the PROC text files. Wondering if you could ask whoever compiles the airac for this addon to make the change?

I have forwarded the comment. Unfortunately that is all we can do.

Do the people at Lufthansa systems even read the emails you send? Why do they offer such a product if they have zero support for it. Have they communicated with you at all on this issue?
