Flight Plan won't save in MSFS or FSX

I created a full flight plan which looked real good. I tried to export to MSFS and it gives me an error saying “Failed to Export Flight Plan”. Same for FSX. All other sims the export works. Sim not running when I created FP

Hi, Just updated from Charts 7 to Charts 8. Learning the new GUI, when exporting flight plan to FSX, Charts saves/generates 2 .pln file suffixes. Pretty sure FSX/P3D is going to puke an error over this. I will try renaming/deleting one of the .pln suffixes.

For the error to export flight plan - please paste your flight plan here so we can investigate. Use the Copy to Clipboard function and paste here. There is currenlty a known issue about SIDs with no transitions, they yield an error when exporting. We will issue a fix soon.

For the file suffix issue, this is also known and we will issue a fix for that too.

Hi Stephen,

Seems every time I save a flight plan for FSX/P3D, it adds another .pln suffix on to the file name. or maybe…pln? So I overwrote/saved this plan at least twice in Charts, if I were to re toggle the export flight plan in Charts to FSX it might give me 4 …pln suffixes.

Thanks for your help.

This is a known issue and will be fixed in the next Desktop app update.

Hi,

This issue should be fixed now. Please try exporting again.

Thanks Stephen, FP is saving now just have the issue with the file extension doubling. Should I re-download the charts app or wait for the next update?

Hi,

Glad to hear!

The double extension problem has been fixed but not depolyed yet. Hopefully we’ll be able to deploy a new version of the Desktop app tomorrow!

Stephen

Got the update this morning. After adding a departure to a plan it won’t export to MSFS2020.
I get “Failed to export flightplan.” but no explanation of the error.
