active Library entries for freeware airports?

Recommended Posts

I am having problems with my rudder trim when approaching KGSO Greensboro, North Cariolina. This might be because there is no library entry for the airport.

Should I add an airport entry to the library? If so, where is the airport's AFCAD????

Hi Richard,

 

I do see KGSO in my list of FTX_FTXG_AIRPORTS.   I did it for Freeware Pack 19.  Anything that is part of that airport should NOT affect your rudder trim.  If you want the AFCAD (you will need ADE to read it) contact me via the "messages" folder at the top of this page.

 

Cheers, Neil

Hi Neil,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Now that you have pointed me to ORBX.FTX_GLOBAL.FTX_FTXG_AIRPORTS.Scenery I can see the .BGLs for KGSO.

I am currently having unrecoverable rudder trim problems once established on rwy 23L.

It has been suggested on the PMDG forums that it may be caused by an error in the airport's .BGL.

Have you landed successfully at KGSO? If you have then this idea holds no water.

Regards, Richard (ex Wesfarmers, Wellington St, Perth)

Hello,

 

You could test their theory yourself by simply un-ticking the 

FTX_FTXG_AIRPORTS scenery library entry and flying the approach again.

If the problem is gone, let us know, if the problem is still there then please

look elsewhere for your solution.

Hi again,

 

I looked up the info  for KGSO in Air Nav and see it has PAPI's instead of VASI's on several runways including 23L (if I remember right) .  I'm attaching the revised files for KGSO with the PAPI's, they will replace the 2 KGSO files in your ORBX.FTX_GLOBAL.FTX_FTXG_AIRPORTS.Scenery folder.  I have no idea how that might effect your rudder issue.

 

Cheers, Neil
