Company route in the FMC

Recommended Posts

I noticed a "company route" heading in the FMC, and the aircraft folder has a company route section as well.

Does anyone know how save a favorite route as a "company route" for future use?

 

Thanks,

 

Tim

Well, well, well.  I usually try to not have RTFM thrown at me, but in this case, it's deserved....LOL.  I did skim the manual, but clearly, not closely enough.

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately it seems you can load a route, but can't yet save one. Jan shows an example on page 14 of his "Full Flight w/FMS" tutorial (look inside the folder 5-Tutorials). The photo shows "<SAVE ROUTE" on the bottom left of the CDU. It has not been implemented in the current release.:huh:

Hi,

yes, this was removed last second (after I did the tutorial) due to some issues... we will hopefully get it back, but it´s also easy to just use a text editor to make your COROUTE...

I use routefinder to create and save routes:

http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/

Eg: For EIDW (Dublin) to EHAM (Amsterdam) it gives this as a result

EIDW SID LIFFY UL975 WAL UM16 DOLAS UL603 LAMSO STAR EHAM

Save this as a EIDWHAM01.fpl  in the supported format (not txt!)

The supported format for IXEG 737 is *.flp ( *.fpl is not readable from the FMC and is wrong also in the PDF manual).
