Issues entering route

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Trying to enter the following route (from PRO-ATC):

ESSA DCT NOSLI DCT VSN DCT JX DCT NEXIL N851 MAKEL DCT RARUP DCT ULSEN T155 ALOSI DCT KEMAD UN851 MASEK DCT KERAX EDDF

When I get to the N851 airway (VIA) I can't enter MAKEL in the to section (RSK-1).  i am getting a NOT IN DATA BASE message.  As a matter of fact, no matter what I try to enter in the TO field, it isn't accepting it.  I'm suspecting the N851 airway isn't available in the route database?  if so, anyway I can confirm this?  Note I have navigraph 1709 rev1 installed on the 717 as well as Pro ATC.

I tried entering a bogus airway and immediately got the NOT IN DATABASE message, so it appears that N851 is in fact valid (since it does allow me to enter it)....its just that its not allowing me to enter the next waypoint after the airway.

Strange.....cause when I enter the route in PFPX, it accepts it as valid.  It also shows the airway as N851

When I enter UN851 in PFPX, it deletes the airway completely and sets up a direct connection between 

PELUP and MAKEL 

Thus I am suggesting that UN851 isn't a valid airway for this route.   Also even if when I enter UN851 in the via field, I still can't enter MAKEL in the To field.

Try to validate your route with the Eurocontrol IFPS validator but I'm pretty sure this route is not valid :)

It didn't validate ;)....but I think its because of the format entered:

ESSA DCT NOSLI DCT PELUP N851 MAKEL DCT LUB UP605 KEMAD DCT ERNEP DCT EMGOD T729 NOSPA DCT BETEX EDDF

Response: 

SYN112: INCORRECT USAGE OF BRACKETS '(' AND ')' AT ROW= 1, COL= 1 (TITLE)

I then tried letting PFPX find a route from ESSA to EDDF, instead of Pro-ATC.  This is what it found: 

ESSA DCT NOSLI N850 ABAMA DCT SALLO DCT HLZ T157 KERAX EDDF

I tried to validate that through Eurocontrol but that didn't validate either :( (similar syntax looking error).

I will try the new PFPX route and see if the 717 likes it and report.

Hi all,

I copied and pasted the above route into Pilot2ATC, with no problem.

 

I have attached a 'company route'  for this FP (ESSA > EDDF)

 

Could someone let me know if that works

thanks

You have to validate a full flightplan, eg :

(FPL-XXX000-IS
-B712/M-SDFGHRWY/C
-ESSA1125
-N0454F360 DCT NOSLI DCT PELUP N851 MAKEL DCT LUB/N0457F350 UP605
 KEMAD/N0459F360 DCT ERNEP DCT EMGOD T729 NOSPA DCT BETEX DCT
-EDDF0159 ETAR
-PBN/A1B2 RVR/075)

But remember that DCT are limited in a flight plan, in most case (in europe) it can exceed 50nm.
Try something like that : SID NOSLI N850 BAGOS UN850 MIC T155 ALOSI T157 KERAX STAR

ps: I don t check it
