Airway L9 UK

Recommended Posts

There appears to be an errant entry between Dover and Konan : L9 0023 5101N 51.149722 1.625278

Referred to on the charts as:

Base level change is not at a
right angle to theAWY CL but
is contiguous with the base
level change of the Worthing
CTAat this position.
Affecting Qualitywings and PMDG as checked.

Hi Stephen,

what is wrong with this segment? The text you copied from the AIP is just a remark, the coordinates are exactly as published.

Looks like FSBuild is making the entry West instead of East as per the pic.

This is a problem in FsBuild.

The waypoint 5101N is coded in the database at a specific location between KONAN and DVR. But FsBuild ignores this coded waypoint and calculates the coordinates from the waypoint name. Which in this case produces your incorrect routing.

From the UK AIP 5101N is not assigned a SignificantPoint Name, just a SignificantPoint Coordinates which appears to be the cause.

Shall pass the info onto Ernie.

Yes, the AIP has only coordinates, but the systems need a name :)

The name of this point is not important. As we have seen there is no name published in the AIP, but as the data format requires a name, the data provider has to create a name. I don't know the exact rules, but for sure you should not try to read out the coordinates from the fix name. The real coordinates of the fix do not match any of the grid coordinates anyway.
