Navaid, fix and parkpos data from Navigraph?

Postby tdammers » Fri Apr 03, 2020 11:10 am

Does anyone know if any of these are available from Navigraph:

- navaids (VOR/DME, NDB)
- fixes
- parking positions (lat/lng/heading)

And if so, which FMS data package I need to download to get them?

I tried scraping parking positions from PDF charts, which is possible in principle, but doesn't give me headings, only names and positions.

At least navaids and fixes are: subscribe to the Xplane-11 Addon in Navigraph and let it download/update with every new cycle. In the folder where you map it to, you 'll find an earth-fix.dat and earth-nav.dat file. Gzip these to a .gz archive (using a zip-program like 7zip) and rename to fix.dat.gz and nav.dat.gz. Place these files in a Navaids folder in a custom scenery folder, and they should be loaded by FlightGear on initialisation. It requires these basic conversions, but it only takes a minute once you're used to it.

edit: I don't think parking positions are available via Navigraph.

You can add procedures from Navigraph's Level -D package, You will need rename xml files and move it into right folders by airport ICAO folders. FGMC branch of A320family works perfectly with that data.
Somewhere on forum is simple Python script for rename and move procedure files.

After you update a lot of airports to the new runway numbers, the ILS approaches will start working again. Until then, you will lose a few ILS approaches.

The problem is that X-Plane updates their standard scenery. FlightGear doesn't. If you can find a way to install X-Plane scenery (especially like the equivalent of apt.dat) without violating any copyrights, then no problem.
