AIrport missing due to code change

Hello

 

Just trying to fly from SELT - SPJC (Lima). However the flightplan will not load as EFB does not recognise SPJC. The previous name of this airport is SPIM, this is recognised. Anything I can do to rectify this? I have tried with both the provided Navigraph database and also with the latest Navdata Pro database, both have the same results.

 

Thanks

Hi Garry,

What simulator do you use? I can see SPJC as default airport in P3D V4.3 and it shows correctly on the Ground Map. It does however not recognize SPIM anymore. This is dependent on the default data of your simulator. The only way to overcome this is to build a simple airport BGL File (or have it built by someone) in ADE (Airport Design Editor).

Hi Oskar

 

Thanks for the answer, I am using P3d V4.3 as you are. SPJC is displaying correctly in the sim, it is not recognised though in EFB v2. EFB v2 still recognises SPIM.

 

Thanks again

Hi Oskar

 

I take that back and apologise. So I assume EFB is taking SPIM from my sim, how can I get this to update to SPJC, particularly as yours is up to date.

 

Thanks

I must admit that I haven't been too specific about the data I use on my P3D V4.3 installation. I always use the updated ILS and Navdata from Hervé Sors:

  http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids3.html  Both World Navaid Package and ILS Regional Update (World). This way EFB v2 recognizes the new ILS installation and thus can assign the proper ICAO code to the Airport. Unfortunately both codes will then show up in P3D, but not in EFB v2. EFB will only recpgnize the new SPJC ICAO code. Be aware that you have to rebuild the database after updating the default BGL by Sors - or - as in Urs' post - do it the manual way.

Thanks very much for the ideas, in the interim I just built the flightplan using EFB with the old code and followed that, for the aircraft and weather program I used Simbriefs flightplan, all is resolved. I think I will give Urs example a go, seems straightforward, sorry I missed it in the manual.

 

Thanks for the excellent support.
