SkyVector/GPX FlightPlan Converter for FlightGear

Postby TribalBob » Fri Sep 07, 2018 6:51 pm

There was interest among the FlightGear users at my VA for a script to convert GPX format FlightPlans (like those on SkyVector) into FlightPlan files that FlightGear can use, so I created one.

This is only tested with GPX files downloaded from SkyVector so others may or may not work correctly.

Here is the script, it's a batch script so it's completely open-source and should work on all Windows versions, feel free to have a look at the code inside any text editor.

Since Flightgear can natively read GPX files, what would be the use of this?

Hmmm, seems you are correct.

Someone in my VA said the plans he exported from SkyVector weren't working with FG and anothermember said they would work if you removed the departure airport so i wrote a script to do that and tested it and it worked. i never tested the downloaded file as my VA member said they didn't work.

I guess if a mod wants to delete this thread, please feel free.
