Simbrief to Flight gear flight plan converter

Postby TKE587 » Mon Jun 22, 2020 11:42 pm

Hello I developped an on line resource allowing to convert a XML DATA FILE from simbrief into a loadable flight plan file in the route management module.
Took me about 3 hours to develop.

usage:
. on simbrief plan and generate OFP
. download the XML DATA FILE in the download section under the OFP
. upload that into the converter
. the converter will generate an automatic download of the converted file
. go into FG route management module from the 'auto pilot' top menu
. fill up departure and arrival airport
. clik on LOAD button to load the converted file
. click on activate.. the full simbrief route should appear in the PFD

Hope this could be the start of more opensource improvements for the flight gear developer community.

the resource is here: https://sbtofg-converter--tke587.repl.co/

Thanks
I tested it some more early this morning, on a short haul (egll lfpg) and a long haul (egll ksfo). It all seems to work properly.
Don t hesitate to send me feed back if you find a bug

You wasted Your time :)
From OFP screen You can open generated flightplan in skyvector.com and here use Export - download Dynon GPX. This file is perfectly compatible with FG route manager...

I like skyvector, for FG is better than all other tools.
