Hub Excursion Flt Pln New Eddystone Rock to Tamgas Harbor
« on: June 28, 2019, 02:04:59 PM »
With all programs set up for a Tour departure-Flt Pln loaded in FSX and "OK" is selected the Flag that asks "do you want to move aircraft to departure location" does not come up.  I have reloaded earlier Hub Excursion Flt Plns and the move aircraft flag comes up in each".   Any thoughts on the problem would be appreciated.

Some waypoints in the sets of flight plans are jus positions recorded on the flight plan are not recognized by the flight sim as valid locations. If you refer to the tour documentation, (the flight legs details section of the pdf), you'll see references stating "SAVE POSITION" on some of the flight legs - which means save the flight in the sim (which also saves your aircraft position).

So these end points that are not recognized as a start point in the sim, your sim can't just load them as a start position. THe only way to get there is either by lat/long of that location or the position is saved in the flight.

So if you have saved your flight when you end at those points, your aircraft position is also saved so when you start the next leg, your aircraft will be a the correct/saved position to start that leg.

Thanks for the help, Norm.

I thought it might be that Eddystone Rock was not a starting point recognized by the program. I was confused in that it was recognized as a destination.   I'll fly the flight again and save it this time.  Also will read the tour documentation more thoroughly from now on.
