Flight Planner for PMDG

You should have no problem at all loading a flight plan into the NGX. FSBUILD is an exellent flight planner. Did you follow all of the set up steps outlined in the manual as far as the file paths and export preferences?
Please, I need help.I have FSBuild updated to the latest version and I can't load an IFR flight plan into PMDG 737NGX. Is there any flight planner out there that will do the job?Thanks,Tom Hibben

This is in reference to the SIDS and STARS. I still build my flight plans from A to B but clearing the SIDS, STARS & Runways boxes, leaving this part for manual entry into the FMC when i know my departure runway after which comes the SID and then the star which you can also do before you take off, if you are not using ATC and just want to fly your own flight. Similar to the Tutorial1.Regards,
I was under the impression that after SP1b, you were not supposed to do this. ??But.. that you can build the plan in the FMC, and then save it for future use.Or to put it another way, you were only supposed to use saved plans made inthe FMC, due to some problems that were occurring with ones from 3rd partyplanning programs. I'm sure others that know will chime in.

Just to be clear on what is actually happening. When you enter the name of your flight plan you created in FSBUILD into your scratch pad ( like for instance: KSFOKPDX), does the FMC not accept the COROUTE ?
Hi Rick,Thanks for the reply. I did create a plan using the FMC. I am also using REX and the downloaded weather which had rain and a 500ft ceiling. When I got to the runway and asked for T/O clearance it was denied because I wasn't cleared for IFR. I have tried using FSBuild, as you described, but it won't load into PMDG flight plans/NG. It says it downloaded my plan but I don't have a clue where. I guess I could just takeoff and ignore ATC.Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks for the help.Tom Hibben

Hi Tom. Just a few more questions:1) In the "Options folder", is the path to your PMDG flight plans correct: E:Flight Simulator XPMDGFlight Plans. (E is my drive)2) In the "Settings" tab in Options, is the PMDG737 box checked?3) in this same dialog, did you hit the "SAVE CONFIG OPTIONS" button when finished?4) In the "EXPORT" menu at the top, is PMDG737/747/MD11/J41 (MSFS) checked?Are you familiar with FSBUILD? If not, the mistake i made when first setting up FSBUILD was not exiting it and then restarting it after first time set up.If you've done everything right and it still doesn't work, then Ernie Alston over at the support forum is really helpful.
Hi Rick,That is correct it does not accept it. The plan also does not show in the FSXPMDGFLIGHTPLANSNG file.I have tried several more times with FSBuild and still nothing.Thanks again,Tom Hibben

I hope that does it for you Tom. (Please let me know some time) Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you too.
Hi Rick,I had done all you suggested EXCEPT check the PMDG 737. For whatever reason I didn't catch the drop down tab. Can I blame it on "old age"?...grinWe must think in the same area as I have also installed to E: FSX..... I have not tried another build yet but I am sure you found the problem.Thanks for you kind support and hope you have a Joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year.Tom Hibben
