#492896 Hello!

I am currently creating an airport file for KCHS (Charleston AFB/Int'l), as we are switching some training to this airport. I've created the airport file by capturing necessary intersection points in VRC; however, I have an issue. KCHS has a runway 3 and a runway 33. When I command SWEATBOX aircraft to taxi to either, they get stuck in a loop between the two. Not quite sure what is going on, as any other runway, the aircraft can find a path from pointA to pointB. A keyword search in this forum didn't return any results.

Any help?

Regards,
Christopher Denton

#492905 The .air file loaded contains just one test aircraft. .air file is next on my list.

Code: Select allN470ER:C172:P:V:KCHS:KCHS:1500:CLOSED TRAFFIC:/v/:1200:S:32.89952:-80.03279:0:0:0


Unpause.
Then, I have to get N470ER moving before I can type another command, so:
Code: Select alltaxi G2 G A 21


Next, add an aircraft at the terminal.
Code: Select alladd i l j @T1


Select that aircraft, tell it to taxi to Runway 33.
Code: Select alltaxi B C 33


It will taxi off the ramp, and start traveling towards taxiway A, then turn around at A.

If I tell it to taxi to Runway 3, I'm told that taxiway C and Runway 3 do not intersect, which is a different problem I can fix.
