Convert SimBrief.com Flight plans for use with 124thATC

Post by hoover » Sat Mar 09, 2019 8:53 am

Hi folks,

here's a quick (and rather dirty :)) Python script I came up with to convert FMS plans generated for XP11 on simbrief.com for use with the 124thATC plugin.

Simply drop it into your Output/FMS Plans folder and run it from there (you'll need to have Python2.7 installed on your system).

If you're on Linux, you can pipe the script's output through "more" or "less" to paginate it and select your steerpoints accordingly (see below for an example output).

Thanks to Duke748 who came up with the original suggestion and helped with testing.

All the best,

Uwe


PS: Now I only need to get cut & paste between a Linux terminal and 124th's steerpoint input box to work... :)

Small update: V0.02 now includes the flight levels in an 124thATC compatible format as well. You can manually edit these of course to implement a gradual ascent / descent as you like. As simbrief.com includes sensible FLTs in their FMC output I think this should also take care of the flight plan not considering the terrain involved.

Example output:

Code: Select all

$ convert_fmc.py V0.02 (c) hoover
Departure: BIKF    Arrival: EIDW (FMC file: BIKFEIDW01.fms)
KF272.FL.086 KF221.FL.172 KF222.FL.215 KF223.FL.253 KF225.FL.308 KF226.FL.324 PIXUM.FL.354 BREKI.FL.410 6116N.FL.410 ETILO.FL.410 GILAN.FL.410 NIMAT.FL.154 KERAV.FL.081
Departure: EDDV    Arrival: EDDF (FMC file: EDDVEDDF01.fms)
ROBEG.FL.269 PIROT.FL.280 LARBU.FL.280 WRB.FL.280 RANAX.FL.280 EDEGA.FL.256 AMETU.FL.207 SOGMI.FL.130
Departure: EDDV    Arrival: EKCH (FMC file: EDDVEKCH01.fms)
DV250.FL.038 DV251.FL.084 DV253.FL.114 CEL.FL.184 DIRBO.FL.240 IRKIS.FL.240 ABMAL.FL.240 RAMAR.FL.240 TOSPA.FL.240 AMICH.FL.240 MEGAR.FL.240 GESKA.FL.226 MONAK.FL.144 CDA.FL.130 KUBIS.FL.082
All the best,

Hi hoover,
Thanks for you contribute, really nice feature, I don't use simbrief, but I'll definitely try it.
