• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FSX:SE Creating RNAV/GPS Approach

Hi,

I've been trying over and over to create the RNAV approach as per the below chart. I have read all the tutorials and followed the guides on these forums and can't seem to make it work.
http://www.ead.eurocontrol.int/eadb.../NON_AIRAC/EG_AD_2_EGHC_8-4_en_2019-06-20.pdf

The waypoints appear in the default GPS, but when I load the approach, it either goes blank, or directs me to the runway missing all the legs in between?

<Approach

Try removing the waypoint RW34. It's probably confusing the sim as RW34 already exists as runway 34.

I cant do RNAV approach too for SBVC new airport, only 2 RNAV one for RWY15 and other for RWY33. What the sequence to do the approaches?

The sequencie of RNAV33 is from VC011 (IAF) to VC007 (IF) to VC008 (FAF) and landing or VC012 (IAF) to VC007 (IF) to VC008 (FAF) or VC013 (IAF) to VC007 (IF) and VC008 (FAF).

But im really no idea how put this on ADEX and any tutorial help me :(. Im try with GPS Approach. The FIX/WAYPOINTS was sucessfull inserted.

There is a a tutorial somewhere, written by Jim Vile I believe.
It's possibly in the wiki.
