  1. Hi Oskar, it's a default airport so no fix seems likely. Turning off the FSGlobal layer is easy and once I depart tomorrow I can enable it again. I don't have Vectors. I will check my destination airport tomorrow to ensure there is no repeat. We'll have these problems for eternity I suspect.
  2. Those files sorted the problem so thanks again Oskar. I flew north to Cali but had to deactivate the FS Global layer for Sth America as the airfield was in a rectangular chasm several hundred feet deep! ๐Ÿ˜‚
  3. Oskar, thatโ€™s very kind of you, thanks. Iโ€™m parked at Lima overnight before the next leg tomorrow. Those files will come in handy and Iโ€™ll report back how the planning and departure went.
  4. Hi Oskar, Given this is a world tour so once I depart Lima tomorrow I'll probably never land there again I'll just cope with the clashing ICAOs. Does EFB get the airport data from the user's data or from Navigraph-supplied data? I guess the former otherwise there wouldn't be this anomaly. I had a look on SimMarket for Lima scenery but the only recent package has the old ICAO so that wouldn't help and I believe you can only modify ICAOs in AFDs with the paid version of ADE.
  5. This is a new one for me. As part of my world tour I setup a flight to Lima, Peru this morning. PFPX reports the ICAO as SPJC but when I tried to import the route into EFB it said that ICAO didn't exist. A check of the airport name revealed it as SPIM. I modified the plan and it was loaded okay. PFPX reports it as JORGE CHAVEZ INTL. I subscribe to Navigraph and both sets of data are running 2001-R1. Why would this mismatch happen?
  6. Hi again Urs, I'm struggling to see how a flight plan can be saved as a CSV file. I've searched several pdf fles for CSV but nothing was returned.
  7. Hi Urs, I did some digging and it seems GE can read a CSV file. https://support.google.com/earth/answer/176685?hl=en From what I can see a KMZ file is zipped and can contain multiple files including images. But all I'm looking for is the ability to draw a line connecting all waypoints in a flight plan. Maybe a KML file is the answer but I'm sure you know more than me. ๐Ÿ‘
  8. Hi Urs, I didnโ€™t know GE could read a CSV file, thanks. I shall experiment. Hope you enjoy your Christmas. ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Iโ€™m currently flying an around the world tour in a B738. Concorde would have been better but thereโ€™s no 64-bit version. ๐Ÿ˜ž I have been investigating whether I can draw a line between airports visited in Google Earth. Add Path in GE does allow the user to draw a line but itโ€™s freehand, not a straight one. So thatโ€™s a non-starter. I was wondering if a KMZ file could be generated from the flight plan in EFB using the Lat/Lon of the airports and waypoints? A happy Christmas to Urs and Oskar and best wishes for 2020. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜
  10. I can understand why you may not want to be fighting for a take-off slot. OTOH, I love seeing so many different airlines. ๐Ÿ˜
  11. Hi Oskar, I've just started my world tour but after landing in Iceland I'll setup a test scenario with southerly winds and see what happens. It must be a very lonely world without Ai but at least you don't have to delete aircraft with hundreds of virtual passengers disolved just so you can get a take-off clearance at Heathrow! ๐Ÿ˜
  12. I have one query about the single runway BGL. Fault Finder in ADE shows 22L to have a closed Start. That will affect Ai surely? Will they be able to depart should there be a southerly wind?
  13. Thanks Oskar. I keep forgetting you get info like this from the real world and not the BGLs. Where they match itโ€™s not a problem. But in this case I had exhausted all my options hence the post. Ill replace the BGL with yours - thanks. ๐Ÿ‘
  14. I have the RFSB version of LIPZ with just the one runway operational - 04R/22L. If I position my aircraft on 04R and tune NAV1 to 110.30 the ILS becomes active. All well and good. But having rebuilt the database and opened the Client without a flight plan loaded I select the airport and then press PROC, switching to Arrival. 04R/22L is correctly shown but no ILS option is shown for 04R. Only VOR/DME 04R and RNAV/RNP 04R. Why no ILS entry?
