I've tried to set up a couple of flights so far from small GA airfields but these don't appear in Sim EFB despite trying both their real-life ICAO code and the ones shown in MSFS. Should Sim EFB include all airfields that MSFS has by default or is it getting it's data from another source (alternatively am I being dim and not searching for them correctly ?) A couple of example aifields are below:
Airfield:MSFS ICAOWeb Published ICAO
Felthorpe EGJC EG37 / GB-0426
MemburyEGOCGB-0412 - EGOC in the online list of ICAO codes shows as Bishops Courst aifield in Northern Ireland so not sure whats goign on there).
Hi Sam, Thanks for getting back to me, I can understand needing to control costs ref the data source. I just had a look on the site that you get your data from and although it doesn't find the airfields from icao code it does find them both from their name and return correct location and elevation information. Is it possible to add an option to search by name instead of relying on icao code to cover more airfields?
Thanks for the reply, it would be great if you can add this functionality in future. As a stop-gap I'm able to plan a route for airfields which don't have icao codes using the option to set the flight plan in the sim then import it into sim efb.
Done a couple of flights now, using it as a training aid for nav exercises in vr, no moving map, just using nav log and sectional charts.
Really impressed with it and it works really well, exactly what I was looking for.
