SIDS and STARS Not updating after Airac cycle update

Hi everyone

I hope someone can help me or suggest things to try.

I download a flight plan via sim brief and the flight plan generated always uses sids and stars that are more current than in my fmc.

Every aircraft I own dose this too.

When selecting sids and stars for flight it’s very ver rare to get one to match up with the generated flight plan. I have all of my aircraft updated to the latest Airac but the sids and stars are always outdated by up to 3 or 4 updates.

For example MANDU7 in the flight plan, but MANDU3 in the aircraft even when it’s updated to the newest Airac cycle… what am I doing wrong?

Any help is really appreciated

Thank you

Little bit difficult to help you without knowing the sim which you are using, which addon, a sample flightplan, …

Without this basic information, there is no chance to answer your question.

But as a general answer:
When the AIRAC cycle is also updated in the supported addon that you could use the same terminal procedures. In your example: the MANDU3 is outdated and therefore I assume, your addon don’t use the same AIRAC cycle, or the cycle is not installed correctly.


Hi Richard

Sorry I forgot to mention which sim , didn’t think it would matter because I use the FMS data manager to keep my sims and aircraft updated. Im using the flight factor A320 U in xplane 11.55 and the fslabs A320 in P3d.

Both aircraft and both sims have this issue of the sids and stars always being outdated one or two Airac versions, yet the latest updates are installed in the aircraft when you load the MCDU up and check the nav data. See first picture.



- or rather there is no SID that matches the flight plan. this is very common on all most every flight, so I think you are correct and something is installed in the wrong location.

Its also happened in many other aircraft in the sim over the last few years , P3d V4.5 to P3D v5.3, using PMDG 737, 747, 777, Quality wings 787 as well.

Im clearly doing something wrong , but im sure the file paths are correct.

Hope this helps and you can suggest something for me to try.

Hi Jeff,


Your first pic indicates you have not successfully updated the FF A320. It should look something like:


I suspect your FMS Data Manager paths or settings are not correct.

It may be quickest to reinstall from scratch using exact procedure below :

Please disable any Antivirus and firewall. Uninstall AV if needed.

In FMS Data Manager Settings Unregister Account:

Use Windows to uninstall FMS Data Manager. Specifically:

  1. Press Start and open Apps & Features.
  2. On the right hand side, open Programs and Features.
  3. Find Navigraph FMS Data Manager in the list, select it, and press the Uninstall button above.

If they exist, delete folders:
c:\ProgramData\Navigraph and c:\Program Files (x86)\Navigraph.

Download and install latest FMS Data Manager to the default location. Allow Scan when prompted.

In Addon Mappings tab, do you have the FFA320 and FSL entries? If so, in Addon List select them and Update.

Please let us know how you get on.
