Variations on ILS courses

This section of the Sim-A Forum is for support issues.
Only a few Clear Rules Here:
1. No Rants. Rants will be deleted and the poster contacted. All focus here is to assist in the spreading of information to better assist all Sim-A users. Most of the people helping are not paid employees.
2. Be Polite. We want all Sim-A users to experience the fantastic elements that make Sim-A what it is. Being able to communicate here will allow the info to be the focus.
3. Time. We do not have someone on the Forum 24/7 so please allow members to jump in to help when needed.
4. Most important. This is not a "Issue" forum. If you feel there is an issue then please email and Mark will review that. This is a commercial product and erroneous reports do harm.

Thanks Mark for an excellent explanation and thanks to everyone contributing to this thread. I have wondered about this for quite some time and I'm learning a bunch about it.

My failsafe method is to go first to the destination airport, open the map and write down all navaids freq. and bearings.
Not high-tech but works :roll:

Although aero.sors does not update add-on airports, aero.sors has a very useful tool that allows to manually edit individual bgl files for ILS and other navaids.
The cool thing about it is that it automatically determines for which there is a discrepancy between the airac file and the bgl.
And you can easily edit it.
You have to do it manually, but it is ’ike adding another relative quick pre-flight check and procedure when needed...

You need to update your airport database in Sim-A. From the LatestVersionInfo.txt in the Sim-A Documentation folder:

# New program - \Navigation_Data\Build_Position_Database.exe
Used to build a position database of runways and gates based on your custom scenery.

1) Copy \Navigation_Data\makerwys.exe to Main Flightsim folder and execute.
2) Copy the resulting r5.csv and g5.csv back to \Navigation_Data
3) Run Build_Position_Database.exe

I had the same issue as you but after doing this it is solved.

How often should I do this, every AIRAC update?
Inspire or Retire
