    Project Magenta CDU - flightplan converter?

    I've just joined Virgin Blue VA and they have a stack of prepared flight plans in PMDG737 format. They were generated in FSBUILD. Just wondering if anyone has a converter to convert these into the PM CDU flight plan format (not FS format as that won't do)?

    cheers

    Hi Nic,

    I tried to convert FSBuild flight plans into something usable with PM and failed. Some formating problem, I was told.

    Now I use FS Commander8.1, and I have no more probems to export the flight plans to FS9 and to Radar Contact. Now the flight plans can be read by CDU and are displayed on my NAV. Only the destination airport is sometimes missing on the NAV (but present on the Legs page). By copying it to the Fix page and turning it into a Fix I circumvent this litte problem. I would do that step anyway, because I usually draw 10 and 30 miles circles around the destination airport as a reference...

    Regards,
    Hans
