Hi Folks,

I hope someone is left around here keeping the lights on...
:D

Question: Just bought Meigs Field from ORBX - need to flight plan to it...

It's listed in the "Fsb_apts.txt" yet it won't show up in FSBuild...

Any idea what else I'm missing ?

Entry:
KCGX CHICAGO_MERRILL_C_MEIGS 591 N41:51:32 W87:36:27 18_4008_N41:51:32_W87:36:27_180_--- 36_4008_N41:51:32_W87:36:27_036_---


Thanks...

Regards,
Scott

Hi DJ,

Got it - I see he is using apts.txt instead of Fsb_apts.txt...

Also need to change LAT/LON to decimal...

Thanks for helping...

Regards,
Scott

Bear in mind that you must re-enter this data every time you update your AIRAC data - so make a backup to just copy and paste the entry.
