Summary0000298: Wrong waypoint "FL" detected from destination airport with flight level (imported from GPS)
DescriptionThe destination airport is imported from FMS/GPS (flight plan created with FS Commander). The destination airport contains a flight level, which is causing problems. The plugin removes the string "EGAC" for the destination airport, but keeps the flight level information ".FL.0". When parsing the filed flight plan this remaining string is converted to waypoint "FL" (existing NDB) and messing up the flight plan.

Report from user:

Here is the FS Commander flight plan as it appears in the FSC window: EGPF NORBO L186 TRN P600 BLACA P620 NELBO EGAC

This is how it appears in 124thATC after importing from the FMS/GPS: NORBO TRN GIRVA TUNSO BLACA NEKBO EGAC.FL.0

My reply:

Somehow the plugin interpreted the last entry ".FL.0" as separate waypoint (navaid) and created following flight plan:

XEXUS ELBAN TRN35 NORBO GIRVA TUNSO BLACA NELBO FL

The last (wrong detected) waypoint "FL" is some other navaid far away (somewhere in Sweden or so) and that is the reason, why ATC guided you far off the planned course. Based on this wrong preceeding waypoint also the transition waypoint "Approximation" was calculated wrong.

See the logfile below.

Additional InformationSuggestions for solution:

1) avoid to import the destination Airport from GPS to the flight plan
2) remove waypoints starting with string ".FL"

Bug confirmed.
I'll implement some regex substitution sanity checks, meanwhile I'm going to re-enable the dialog warning about departure and arrival airport in the flight plan
