By the way PFPX only works from AIRAC Nav Data so it can only ever know one version of a runway - the one in the AIRAC. Even though a current AIRAC should contain information regarding the real life runways, it has no idea what's in the sim and what's been added to it. I'm presuming you meant that, but others coming here may miss the point that to make reliable plans from *runway to runway* requires reading the data in the sim, otherwise we can only make plans between airport locations (unless we know the scenery is up to date). In the IF10 planner we simply choose Flight Plan Types without "Approaches" in the flight gen page. Even so the runways will still be predicted in accordance with the winds and shown in the briefing. When using an add-on weather engine, turn off IF10 weather but insert the winds for departure and arrival before building the flight.

To know "the corrected runways" the planner needs to know the runways in the AIRAC *and* the runways in the simulator so they can be compared, otherwise it simply knows "runways". I was informed that there's no plans for PFPX to be updated to read the runways in the sim, it will remain a planner for all types of AIRAC led aircraft. If I need to create routes manually I make them in PFPX and then drop the exported plan onto IF10 to generate the full flight set-up.

Hopefully working correctly now, we should find the user flight files sent to the docs folder when changing profile or restoring a backup, a saved flight takes precedence.

Thanks for suggesting this modification, logically it should have always done that.

:D

Preview 14 has been uploaded, it fixes a small issue with that mechanism sending the Export files probably hasn't affected anyone though as it only happened when re-creating deleted files.

There's been a lot of work on the navdata abstraction engine recently, pre_12 had an issue messing up some of the data, should all work fine now tested with all the latest AIRAC sets (1701) from iFly, Level-D, PMDG, and Airbus X Extended.

...make sure to keep up to date with latest downloads. There's been quite a few issues resolved since all the new upgrades have been settled in. Preview 17 is available and much better than when you came in to the fray. I'm working on pre_18 improves airport search drop-down lists, which was requested that we can order by ICAO or airport name. I'll get that uploaded soon, waiting for a bit of FeedBack on 17 right now...

Happy Easter!

Thank you for your support! Very much appreciated.

IF10 is still in development with previews available to forum members. Soon this will go into the Flight1 wrapper and be made available to non forum members via the regular IF10 downloads page on the site.

Next update pre_19 removes the situation with Windows 10 demanding to re-register some software products. Unfortunately this update will in itself require re-registration to use it. But after that no more registering until the PC is changed or the operating system wiped and installed. However, Image backups restore on the same PC without requiring re-registration. Also included in pre_19 is better handling of the sim data graphs with settable high and low limits for the y axis, and an improved data collection technique.
