Thread: Updating Navaids and Intersections

  1. Default Updating Navaids and Intersections

    Anybody know if there is a patch or process to keep the Navaid and Intersection database in FS9 and FSX up to date so I can fly on VATSIM with current FAA or Jeppesen SIDS/ STARS and Approach Plates? Thanks...

    There is no practical way to update the FS9 or FSX internal database.

    all you can do is update the fmc data if your aircraft supports it and has an fmc

    Before anyone downloads the AIRAC file in the link I suggest reading this short thread, especially the posts by Scott and Jim V.

    As mentioned here and elsewhere you can:

    1. Update the FMCs (assuming you use an FMC) database using the payware option for the specific FMC, i.e., Navigraph; and/or
    2. Update the STAR/DP Navaids for the airport(s) that you fly -- ADE is a good tool for this.

    If you don't use an FMC, option 2 would update the information you see in the gps. If you do use an FMC you would benefit from 1 and 2. Your FMC will use the updated info in 1 and FSX ATC will use the updated info in 2 - makes for a nicer flying experiece when the ATC offer you the same approaches as shown in the FMC.
