PFD error when executing FPLN

Issue #5 closed

created an issue

The error message pop-ups after immediately after executing the FPLN from the FMS, entering just a departure, arrival and a single VIA waypoint. When I click the execute button the PFD (which is set to FMS) goes blank and that error message appears.


Clean install of aircraft with 2.1.1.a scripts added

    The error is because the code is trying to get the next waypoint's flight plan altitude, while there are some wpts in the memory (fmc_wpt_data table), but the curr_wpt does not exists yet (requires a minimum departure entry).

    Checking for the existence of the "curr_wpt"

    if curr_wpt ~= 0 then

    instead of the number entries of the temp flight plan

    if #fmc_wpt_data >= 2 then

    fixes the issue.

    Confirmed resolved. Or rather, no error. Steps performed:

    • Power on aircraft (battery)
    • Complete engine startup procedure
    • Both generators on
    • Avionics on (wait for boot)
    • Toggle PFD navigation mode to FMS
    • Open FMS
    • Input departure ICAO, arrival ICAO and an intermediate fix/waypoint then click EXEC

    No error(s)
