Woai Error: Airplanes Not Landing, Just Circling

Fri Dec 06, 2013 5:34 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm having a very very irritating WOAI error at certain airports in FSX. The aircraft supposed to land there just overfly the airport at 2000 feet over and over again and don't even attempt to land.

I've noticed this at 2 airports I've flown through recently, DPS and LAX. I can live with Denpasar but LA is obviously way too big to be empty!

Has anyone had the same problem and does anyone know of ways to fix this?

Regards!

Check to see if you have multiple AFCAD/ADE files for the airports. There is a tool, I think it might be this one that will scan for duplicates.

Thanks for the tip! Will look at this after I land in YVR on my current flight.  

Kind regards,

Yep, looks like it. At least it worked for LAX, still haven't checked DPS.

Nice. Duplicate ADE/AFCAD files will cause all kinds of problems, from takeoff/landings to weird parking and so on.
