I have two requests…
I have been using the API to generate flight plans for my web page and comparing that to the flight plan on the Simbrief portal. in both requests I am using the exact same aircraft and I am not sure if I am once again doing things completely wrong as they both return different figures for trip burn, payload etc. On a few occasions the Simbrief call drops the cargo and / or payload and sometimes both.
On my own returned flight plan the ‘taxxiout’ has been set to ‘auto’ whereas it was set 20 mins. I know in the tutorial it says that if any of the input field names are incorrect they will be ignored and as had a previous post that was my erroneous input I have checked and double checked and each time for the same flight there are discrepancies.
I respect Navigraph as being correct and accurate so I am pointing the finger back at myself but just cannot see where I may be going wrong… Can someone point me in the right direction here? I have double-checked together with a professional pilot and we get the same different responses each time.
My second question is this… Is there a developers forum where one can get assistance / tutorial possibly on parsing the data into .pdf as per the Simbrief one correctly? I am pretty new to json and xml and trying to emulate the Simbrief PDF OFP for starters and then use php-to-pdf or similar to generate the pdf eventually.
I am getting there slowly with parsing most objects out to html but I am sitting on trying to parse the maps. i have searched at length for posts where I was hoping someone else had a similar need that I could tag into and learn from that but not finding anything at all… unless of course I am missing something again…
I really appreciate your time and thank you in advance
