Search for specific fixes when making your FPL


#1

An ability to be able to search for fixes when flight planning would be good,often I find myself reading an appr plate and just give up on finding each fix.

Some what following on from the FPL post by Aernout & the recent FNF it can sometimes be hard to find each fix that’s on your appr plate or FPL so why not have a feature to search for each fix? Thoughts?

Or maybe even have some approach’s built into a sub menu. Like select the runway & airport etc like you would for an autoland but then a sub menu drops down with the built in appr that is then added to your FPL once you have selected a built in appr ie HELNS FIVE

I have already made a topic about this. Please search before making a new one

It’s like “Finding Waldo” :)

#6

I did search for fixes and nothing came up as a similar sounding topic as I typed But if a similar thread is around some where re direct me and this post over there :)

They are pretty close to the same topic he does state you type in a waypoint for your flight plan which is like a search @Swang007 should these two topics be merged?


#13

How about the ability to just load the approach? Perhaps that way the ATC could also see the approach we’ve prepared for, and can line us up for it?

@ProcedureTurn180 yea I agree. Pretty much what I was saying here :p I actually like that idea better than my original posting
