Topic: Problem sending flight plan to ATC

Hello,

I am having some problems with the x-life flightplanner. When I am trying to send a flight plan to the ATC I get the following error; flight plan error (route tags) segment error -please check that the navdata is correct with both fms, flight planner and the x life. What is wrong?

-I have the latest AIRAC and navdata from navigraph both in the X-life plugin folder, on the simbrief site online and in the custom data.

-I have also downloaded the sceneries from the supported fmc airport list from the jardesign website.

What am I missing or doing wrong to get the error while trying to load a flight plan to the ATC?

Best regards
Marcus Fjellberg

@rolland95,hardfloor, and marcusfjellberg,

I had this happen when I put in the wrong flight level.  I had put in an even flight level when flying a compass heading of 60 degrees.
I believe a compass heading of 0 to 179 degrees are odd flight levels and 180 to 359 degrees are even flight levels.

Re: Problem sending flight plan to ATC

In addition to following the semi-circular rule, if you are using a flight planner to send your plans to the X-Life/Flightplans folder check the syntax - ICAO SID VOR AIRWAY etc. X-Life will often flag an error along a route when the problem it's having is near the start. If the plan has inserted an initial DCT try deleting it, after that try alternative nearby VOR's as the first waypoint.

Hello,

Thanks Watauga & pwalchester

Here is an example of the problem

The flight plan generated by X-Life is very surprising...

Re: Problem sending flight plan to ATC

Your route looks like OSPEN ABRUK SETAL DETSA RENTA M984 LUSIL, I tried this on my flight planner EFASS NG and this also didn't recognise ABRUK.
X-Life is not recognising a lot of waypoints in Austria so I tried creating routes on SkyVector by sticking to navaids and airway waypoints, these two work with X-Life
North of direct route STO J21 LNZ J21 SBG DCT RTT Y703 INN DCT RONAG Z119 PELAD DCT ODINA
South of direct route SNU DCT GRZ J21 KFT DCT VIC L615 SRN

There should be others by using this method

Re: Problem sending flight plan to ATC

Update to my last post, although X-Life accepts the routes as valid, on actual flight I get a crash to desktop during descent phase, I'm trying mods to the routes, meantime here's one which has completed without problems
SNU2D SNU DCT GRZ J21 KFT DCT TIBRO Q707 RISOM DCT VIC DCT OSBUL
DCT VOG ALL.VOG1H

Re: Problem sending flight plan to ATC

This works from the north
STO J21 LNZ J21 SBG DCT RTT Y703 INN DCT RONAG Z119 PELAD
DCT AKASU ALL.AKAS2H

For me ODINA arrivals from the north and SRN from the east don't work

Re: Problem sending flight plan to ATC

Hi carstenschumann, this route is accepted by X-Life 2.1b3 as valid, although I've not flown it.
EDDF SID BIBTI DCT NIK DCT BPK DCT STU DCT SHA DCT YAY DCT YQM DCT ENE STAR KJFK
Planned on EFASS NG using navaids only, airac 1711, waypoints/intersections are still a problem sometimes. Also accepted by SimBrief as valid.
