We have the NavAids, and the Airfield custom POIs, why don't we have IFR intersections? I could possibly help with a project here, but it would require a lot of help from others as well.
I could probably do the entire state of Arkanssas in not too long, if other pilots could help with other states we could get this off the ground!
If you need IFR intersections I would have to assume you are thinking of flying IFR with a ground base GPS. As a pilot I highly recommend using a made for aircraft (portable or panel mount) GPS with a current Jeppesen database.
Actually it wouldn't be that hard. Just grab a copy of the latest AIRAC Cycle, convert it, and your good to go, but like the other poster said, it's NOT reccomended. Use a Proper aircraft GPS for flying.
Of course, of course. Merely a situational awareness device, along with a backup, if my G1000 were to die. I would like to think most pilots (myself included) are smart enough to NOT fly based solely on a Auto GPS.
For instance, if I have to change the screen on my in-dash GPS to set something (route, approach, whatever), it would be nice to have my nuvi there showing me how close I am to the intersection, so I can be ready.
I've got my instrument rating, and know better than to fly with a ground-based GPS, but it would be nice to have as a backup/ extra SA.
Are you looking for just Intersection FIXes, or VOR, NDB, SIDs, STARs, etc..?
I May be able to help you with that. I have the AIRAC 0901 data, and will see if the data can be converted with relative ease.
PM me, with more details, if you want.
Ok, Like I said, not too hard at all, I've just converted every IFR FIX. Not including VOR, NDB, ILS etc.. Worldwide. Just the Fixes. To add the others is a bit more complicated, and I believe someone has already done those.
I can post it tomorrow. If there's interest, I can update it with each Cycle Update.
Hey, that's impressive! Yeah I'm really just looking for the fixes, as we already have all the NAV aids anyways.
I uploaded a worldwide FIX Database and VORs yesterday afternoon. Doesn't look like they are published yet, hang in there, hopefully it won't be much longer.
If an airplane lands in the road in front of me, I'll know the reason why.
Hey - they have landed planes on other moving platforms, so be careful the roof of your box truck has a big red circle with a slash through it!
Yeah exactly what he said. haha
Might have to invest in some anti-aircraft guns to keep 'em buggers off of me!
I believe it was last year at EAA Oshkosh a P-51 Mustang lost oil pressure and landed on Hwy 41, Oshkosh. It was a safe landing with no damage. This isn't that common, but it does happen.
Can you imagine if you were an out-state tourist that didn't know the worlds largest airplane convention was underway, and a World War II fighter lands in front of you while your driving down a four lane.
