For sure.. This is in the forefront of our news too here in Canada. Thoughts and prayers to all those affected and those still close to the CA fires for their safety.

7AK is a small paved strip - well not small it's 4500 feet long x 75 wide. (No scenery is required just default). 
(Akutan SPB (KQA) is 6 nm NW at (252) and Unalaska PADU) which is Dutch Harbor is 36.2 nm  SW (235).

Cigar box has it's own pilots logbook which is able display your flights within Cigar Box but it draws this  information from the MFC site and from not your sim. Never heard or a conflict between the Sim logbook and acars (but hey nothing would be a surprise.)

Check to make sure that you are running both FSX and Cigar Box as administrator. 

Give it a test.

Cigar Box does have a location check so if you are at the an incorrect location when you start or finish the flight then Cigar Box will convey that your aircraft is xxxx miles away from the departure or destination- specifying how far away and another pop-up "Aircraft Position Error".

So did quick check of the MFC airport database values (Lat/Long locations) for both PF50 and PF39 and found that the PF39 longitude was off causing it do reflect an incorrect location which Cigar Box kicked out. I fixed the long of PF39 and re-tested that flight.. fixed and all good now. Thanks for reporting it Brian.

Peter when you are flying any MFC tour, you can refer to the Tour scenery document that is in each tour downloads: It will specify the scenery pieces that are required for that tour.

Ok buddy..  firstly try another flight. Ie: A single flight starting at a different location and see if cigar boz works.. run cigar box as administrator. If no go it's the box. But try it also this way: temporarily turn off anti virus and re test that flight.  If a no go uninstall the cigar box and reinstall it and set again to run as administrator. Will try you tomorrow if you might be around.

Thanks Reiner and many ore interesting trips to come.  Nice job on Tour 11 and indeed the award is present on your pilot's uniform as well as your achievement of accumulating 100 flight hours at MFC during this trip. Nice job.

Yup will be easier for users of the GO table for their planning and selection as it will contain the corresponding MFC Flighst#. Not exactly convinced that it will be an encouragement for pilots to actually join or fly MFC as most pilots actually prefer fly the tours/excursions and not so much the single flights but if/when they do, the RTMM Flight plans already had the corresponding MFC Flight numbers on each but hey we'll see if the updated GO Table helps.

(I fly both the tours as well as the RTMM single type flights: so far have flown the first 180 RTMM Flight plans (in sequence). So still have almost 500 more of those RTMM single flights still to fly!! lol. That will take a while but in those flights there are many very intricate and interesting routes to fly as well as many RTMM add-on scenery locations still to explore so will continue to fly these as well as the tour legs). (And will provide more routes and areas to use in the excursions.

Hello Norm,

Just finished "MFC0002 Misty Hub Excursion"

Thank you for this nice experience! Wortwhile installing all that scenery, passed some fine hours...
 Now preparing "MFC0003 Ketchikan Sea Base Ops"

Ivan Werbrouck MFC0064

Glad you enjoyed the trip Ivan and nice job with those flights. The award for MFC0002 Tour completion appears on your pilot's profile.  (Now you get to Fire up your amphibian for the next excursion - Happy Flying and hope you really enjoy that trip!).
 
Regards
Norm

Ok Brian, Doug came up with a plan on the GO TO Table to simply replace an existing column with the corresponding MFC Flight plan. (Thanks Doug).  It will take a bit to get them all done in the GO TO Table but over time will.  The GO To Table will something like the following:

Going to           From or Waypoint         ORBX          MFC #         NM      Map/TripTics/Downloads
Adams Inlet Cabin        Gustavus PAGS            SAK          MFC0001A       25          Map- (Misty Gustavus)
Admiralty Cove USFS-W  Juneau PAJN-T            SAK          MFC0002A       13          Map-
Aiken Creek-W                Misty's Place PF20 D/W    PFJ          MFC0003A       26          Map-TripTic
Aishihik Lk N Cabin-W    Haines Junction CYHT    SAC          MFC0004A        3          (Cabins by the Lakes II)
Aishihik Lk S Cabin-W    Haines Junction CYHT    SAC          MFC0005A        2          (Cabins by the Lakes II)

(The routes for Hawaii will be left on this table but will not have a corresponding MFC Flight number - will be left blank), but there will be a EFMM Hawaii tour or excursion down the road that will include a complete set of flight plans that will cover every EFMM locations/waypoints.

A warm welcome Kev and welcome to simming in the bush. Yes the NA Orbx's and Tongass goes in, then RTMM on top. Works very nice, looks great and brings a lots of scenics to this area. If you have any questions or problems etc, just give us a holler.  Welcome again and hope you really enjoy flying up here.

Maybe losd up same flight.. and taxi to other end of the runway and try cigar box again.. sounds like a sim glitch.. just make sure that tiu are running the sim as well at cigar box as administrator.

Not home today to check stuff or help more  but give that a try Buddy.
