Airport not in database

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

Hi! I was flying from FACT-LSZH and when I, on the INIT page put in the DEP/ARR airports, I receive the message saying "Not in database". The same happened with other airport as well such as ESSA, LFPG and FACT.

When I first enter the FMGC, it shows that I have AIRAC 1913. Does anyone know the fix for this?

You have selected an empty database...

 

Push the button next to the arrow and the active database will be selected

 

Now AIRAC 2003 is out

When I press L2 next to the arrow, the active nav data base field goes blank, and the same dates appeares in the second nav data field.

However, it´s still not working. After pressing L2, this is what happens:

In the A3xx configurator do you have checked the correct NavigationDataSource: NavDataPro/Navigraph ?

NavDataPro is checked, but I do not own NavDataPro nor Navigraph

Every Aribus is delivered with a NavdataPro dataset.

 

Do you have this file and what does it tell you when you open it?
C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\Documents\Aerosoft\General\A3XX NavData\cycle_info.txt

I do have the file and except some copyright texts it says:

Aerosoft NavDataPro

AIRAC cycle    : 1913
Revision       : 1
Valid (from/to): 05/DEC/2019 - 01/JAN/2020

In your very first pictutre I can see that the datbase that comes with the aircraft is installed and active.

User AAC47 is not correct.

 

At which point exactly do you get the error? Please post a screenshot.

What might help as well is to select the empty secondary database and then select the installed database again.

You can do so by clicking the left LSK next to the respective database on the A/C STATUS page.

 

Be careful however, do NOT do this in flight as it will remove all your FMC programming and you'll have to program the FMC again.

I’ve already tried to do that, but without success. 
Im getting the errors basically anytime, during power up, turnaround state etc. I got the first problem when powering up the aircraft, and now it reappeares as soon as I enter a DEP/ARR airprt. 
exactly what do you need screenshots of? 

 

thanks for the help

Please show a screenshot of INIT A prior inserting LSK1R, so that we can see what you have entered in the scratchpad.

And second direct after inserting.

The small arrow must  point at the database and that was not the case in the picture

Sorry, but you are wrong here:

When you set e.g. NavdataPro in the Configurator as database and also have Navigraph installed, you get this picture when you load the aircraft:

2020-03-26_16h03_14.png

When you now click on LSK3L, the 2nd database (in my case the older Navigraph) is loaded and it looks like this:
2020-03-26_16h05_54.png

When you now click on LSK2L it is set back.

 

So in your case you have set the 2nd database as active.

Well, it is clear: when the line below "ACTIVE NAV DATA BASE" is empty, no database is selected and you get the error message "NOT IN DATABASE".

I suggest to do a fresh install of the Airbus:

- uninstall the current version

- delete any remaining folder

- install the Airbus again by running the installer with administrative rights (right click on the installer and choose "Run as..."):
   -- do not install it inside the P3D folder, but

   -- create a folder elsewhere like c:\P3D Addons

   -- point the installer to this folder

- reboot your PC

After that you should have the following folder structure:

- a folder like c:\P3D Addons\Aerosoft A330 Professional

- a folder C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\Documents\Aerosoft\General that must look like this:

The content of the subfolder A3XX NavData should like like this with size of about 170MB:

2020-03-26_18h03_39.png

 

One thing is very important: Make sure that your Documents folder is not linked to OneDrive!

Forgot to add, that after installing the Bus update it via the ASUpdater to its latest version.

Try to make it simple pls

OK, here you go:

- buy a new PC

- install everything from scratch

Are these 2 steps simple enough?
