Hi All, I am trying to interpret some flight routes. For instance, at http://www.strontiumdog.plus.com/concfp.htm, there are many destinations/routes used by Concorde. Take the one from Manchester to Kangerlussûaq (by clicking the name of the latter). This is how it looks: (FPL-BAW61AD-IS -CONC/H-SRWXY/C -EGCC1300 -N0560F280 WAL UL10 BEL UL10 C/BEL76/N0755F280F450 C/MORAG/M200F450PLUS 60N18W 62N24W 65N36W DCT ASTAN 66N44W/M095F380 67N50W DCT SF -BGSF1530 BIKF - REG/GBOAD SEL/BDAK RMK/TCASEQUIPPED DOF/970603 IFP/RVSMVIOLATION ORGN/TAPABAWO) What is the first three lines? What is the first "word" on the fourth line (N0560F280)? Flight Level 280 something? N0560??? Then I guess it alters between waypoints and commercial routes. M200F450PLUS = Mach 2.0 at FL above 450? DCT SF = Direct to ADF SF from 67N50W? BGSF is the destination airport, but what is 1530? Is BIKF the alternative airport in case of lack of fuel (for instance)? What does the last line mean? Anyone that knows? Thanks in advance! Zacharias
Hey, After (finally) getting the PFPX import to work, it seems unreliable in the import. It is chopping the first parts of the plan out during the import. For example, today I made a plan between KIAD and KSFO: N0458F320 BUNZZ3 RAMAY Q72 HACKS J149 ROD DCT DNV Q42 IRK DCT PWE J130 MCK J44 FQF J80 MLF J58 OAL MOD5 When I imported it into the FMGC as per the PFPX instructions, it removed the part between Q72 HACKS J149 ROD i.e. the imported plan went straight from RAMAY to DNV. That seems to be happening on all the imports I do. PFPX is set to PFPX in the Flight Plan (OFP) field. Jonathan
Hi, I have a few questions regarding the informations that I have to put in the flight plan before sending it to VATSIM controlers. First, what is the correct equipment code for Concorde? Which line should I select in the squawkbox drop down menu? I think it's /I but not sure. What does it change exactly for the controler? For the SID and STAR, should I always explain to the controler that Concorde cannot fly as slowly as other AC and that I need higher speed restrictions or can I just ignore the speed restrictions as indicated in the charts? And by the way, what are the minimum speeds for Concorde in the SID and STAR? For the initial climb, I think it is 250kts and for the approach, it may be Vref + something, right? Same kind of question for the speed indication in the route: I understand what means C/UPGAS/M200F450F600. But in an indication like N0560F290, I don't clearly understand the number after the N. I know that it is the speed in kts but which speed? IAS, TAS, GS? And how can I know this number? For those who are passing by, I just found a website explaining in details the meanings of the figures added to a flight plan: http://www.bleedair.de/the-flight-plan-format.html
