Just thought I'd share with all of you about this neat (somewhat new, I think) web-based tool called SimBrief


It not only picks out routes and draws them out for you - see here, this was my last flight from Edmonton to Ft. McMurray

COMPANY NOTICE :

SB005/13 - DETAILED MAPS OUTAGES
IN RARE CASES, DETAILED MAP GENERATION HAS BEEN FAILING DUE TO AN
"INSUFFICIENT MEMORY" ERROR. THIS OCCURS WHEN THE WEB HOST REDUCES THE
MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE SCRIPT MEMORY FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER. WHILE THESE
OUTAGES ARE NORMALLY SHORT LIVED, I WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LOGS TO
MAKE SURE THEY DON'T BECOME TOO COMMON.
1312050002-UFN

SB004/13 - WIND FETCH ERRORS
WHILE WIND FETCH ERRORS ARE RARE, PILOTS SHOULD STILL BE AWARE OF THEIR
NEGATIVE EFFECT ON FLIGHT PLAN ACCURACY. "WARNING: WIND FETCH FAILED,
ASSUMED ISA CONDITIONS" WILL BE DISPLAYED ON ANY FLIGHT PLAN WHICH FAILS TO
DOWNLOAD THE WINDS ALOFT. THE RESULTING FLIGHT PLAN WILL BE LESS ACCURATE AS
THE SYSTEM WILL REVERT TO A STANDARD ATMOSPHERE MODEL. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO
RE-GENERATE THE FLIGHT PLAN WHEN SUCH AN ERROR OCCURS TO OBTAIN A MORE
ACCURATE OFP.
1310052005-UFN

SB003/13 - FLIGHT RELEASE UNITS
ALL FLIGHT CREW: PLEASE PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE UNITS SELECTION WHEN
GENERATING A FLIGHT PLAN. FAILURE TO IDENTIFY THE CORRECT UNITS WHEN
REFUELING PRIOR TO FLIGHT CAN RESULT IN DEPARTING WITH INSUFFICIENT FUEL
AND/OR AN ERRONEOUS PAYLOAD.

It's pretty amazing, it actually generates these briefings in formats from multiple different airlines - and still not done with it, it has a button where you can DL the flight plan in various file types like PMDG's .rte, or FSX .pln among a bunch of others...

And it also "simply knows" all the specs for most of the more popular aircraft for FSX, so no profiles to create - just choose your ride from a list and let it work it's magic 8)


And the cherry on top -- if you match the time and dates on the plan with that on your favourite weather engine, (ASN, hands down, takes the cake) the weather reports on your generated plan will be just the very ones you need -- and those are pretty accurate, once you figure out how to read/decypher them :roll:

You need only register, but it's free! - And... oh well - just go check it out, I can't say enough about it!


cheers! :mrgreen:

...If you look out the left side of the airplane, you'll see the beautiful Rocky Mountains!
To the right, you may see engine two on fire--But really, if you'll turn to the left, what a sight!

This looks very nice William. I have been using FlightAware to generate routes. But it is limited to USA and parts of Canada. It looks like this may be good for routes on other continents (although I have not tested much yet). I would like to get real European routes and maybe this is the ticket. Must test more against the auto-routes generated by Flight Sim Commander, which are not real.
