FPLtoIF.com in China

Hello IFC! Today there is IFATC in China, and I am planning on flying from ZBAA to ZBCZ, however simbrief thru fpltoif.com throws an “arrival airport not found error” when trying to generate the flight plan? Does anyone know how to generate the plan for this route?

Have you got you’re pop up blocker off? And make sure you type it in correctly

Yes, it does open the popup, it just gives an error there.

I just searched it in app… I doesn’t exist

Did you type it in wrong

I have found the actual reason is because when I typed “ZBCZ” into infinite flight, the airport does not pop up. I tried typing “Changzhi” again nothing popped up. Either IF does not have this airport, or the ICAO for the airport is incorrect

IF doesn’t have this airport

Airports in China have yet to be reworked by the IFAET. Hopefully they will be soon though. As an IFATC apprentice it’s a bummer that all the class Charlies have you spawn on the runway.

If you don’t know, new IFATC recruits can only control class Charlie.

Simbrief and IF use different airport databases. Simbrief itself may not have the airport if it is new or if it was closed but not in IF.
