Instruments freeze and aircraft freezes

I still get freezes of the WASM when flying. I first thought it is a Navigraph issue. I can also add, that the freezes are only happen at bigger STARS/APPROACHES.

 

Happened at LPMA / BIGPI2X / RNAV Y 05

 

and

 

VQPR / SUBSU1 / RNAV Z 15

RNAV Y 05 is an RNP/AR approach they have stated that there are issues loading RNP approaches...  Don't use an RNP approach....

 

RNAV Z 15 -- again another RNP approach that the CRJ would not even have in the FMS IRL...  The FMS can't deal with these legs as stated in other threads...

Okay, thanks. But that is strange. Why can I fly the RNP's then?

That's just the way the CRJ FMS was designed. When the CRJ was built RNP approaches weren't a thing so they weren't designed into the FMS.

But a simcrash is not the solution :D

There are numerous threads on this ...  There is nothing in the Data that they can access that allows them to filter out the RNP approaches.  They have stated here that it causes and issue as it is not coded or able to calculate the legs...

The “solution” is to filter all RNP approaches out of the FMS so they do not appear as selectable options on the ARR page, which is what is done in the real CRJ. We cannot currently do that because of the way the nav database is coded in the sim.

 

VQPR is a special case. Obviously in the sim, you can do anything you like with your aircraft, and I admit it is a fun and challenging approach - but no real CRJ could ever land there.
 

Even a standard Airbus A320 or 737NG cannot land at VQPR, and both of those aircraft types are fully capable of conducting most complex RNP/AR approaches.
 

There are only 5 individual Airbus A319s that can fly the Paro approaches - two owned by Bhutan Airlines, and three by Druk Air. All five have special FMS software and autopilot modifications specifically for the approaches at this one airport.

RNP approach is a subset of RNAV approaches. So to answer your question, RNP approaches only that contain RF legs within them. Also the CRJ cannot fly the vertical profile of any RNAV approach automatically.

Can confirm that this is still an issue. I had a flight plan from Brisbane (YBBN) to Townsville (YBTL) following the BIXAD1 - 19L departure. When it came to adding the arrival SPAR1A, the CRJ did not respond to any control manipulations. After resetting the flight I manually added waypoints and then encountered the NOT FOUND issue described previously when i added the GLA VOR. Also adding in other waypoints after that seemed to erase large chunks of the loaded departure. Here are full details:

Hello Sam,

First of all which version of the CRJ you are using. I just tried this myself on version 1.0.5.0 and could program the approach with no problems. I can see that the approach has a DME arc which was problematic with previous versions but has been fixed since and should be working already on the latest version.

If you are using indeed 1.0.5.0, could you please take a short video of the preflight especially while programming the FMC so that we can see exactly what kind of inputs you are making so that we can try to the recreate it on our part and maybe that way be able to pinpoint the issue.

This just started happening to me since the SU5 Hot fix update.. Downloaded the 1.06 update tonight for the CRJ and problem is still there.. Strange thing friend of mine I was flying with last week entered the same flight plan and his worked no issues. So I think this is more than just a SID/STAR data issue. As it's doing at now at every airport and every route I try to enter. Flight plans that work before SU5 hot fix now don't work since that update.

Just had the FMS freeze up myself... simulator isnt paused. None of the buttons/switches in the aircraft appear to be doing anything, although I can still hear the clicking sounds
