Airways problems


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Me and a fellow danish member, is trying to update our sectorfiles. However it seems, the changed airways data in the .sct file, isn't loaded by Euroscope.

I realised that, if i load FSNavigator airway.txt it worked. But this is the first time i had to do that, to get the right fixes and airways in the FPL Dialog.

 

Is it possible to get ES to use the data from the sectorfile and not airways.txt?

Abdel,

 

To my understanding the OP is asking the developer whether it is possible for a sector file to override the World Airways file used by Euroscope, not how to build or edit sector files.

 

Cheers!

The FSNavigator database takes priority over the .sct file as it has the data needed to extract the route. If a fix/VOR/NDB can't be found in that database, then the sct file is searched. ES can work only with the airways in the .sct file, but the route will not be extracted as fully or correctly as if it was taken from the database.

Ok, to give you the exact problem:

 

UT503 doesn't exist anymore, and T503 is now going from NEXEN-GIMRU-MIC. However, when pilots filling NEXEN T503 MIC, Euroscope goes direct NEXEN-MIC, even if it is written correctly into the sectorfile, shouldn't Euroscope then recognize the route correct if you don't have then newest airways.txt?
