Not sure if this is a bug (ie working as designed) or I'm doing something wrong, but if I generate a flight plan that crosses an FIR boundary (France in this case) and add in two alternate airfields, the SkyDemon PC application does not add the AFTN addresses of the alternates into the address list the FPL is sent to. At least I don't see it in the 'Addresses' list when I look at it after entering the alternates and pressing the "Addressing..." button.
The same routing when entered using AFPex includes the alternate airfield identifiers in its address list.
For example, in SD I plan EGSG->LFOP routing DCT DET DCT LYD DCT KUNAV DCT DPE DCT. Alternates are LFAB and EGMD
The automatic address list is : EGSGZTZX EGZYVFRT LFOPZPZX LFOPZTZX LFQQZPZX LFFFZFZX
Planning the same in AFPex gives an address list of : EGZYVFRT EGSGZTZX LFOPZTZX LFFFZFZX LFQQZPZX LFABZTZX EGMDZTZX
You can see the alternates that SD is missing.
Now, on a PC I can manually add these in - although really SD should be adding them for me - but on the iPad and Silverlight/Browser based applications we don't have the option to display or edit the address list.
So if you are only using the iPad or Browser apps to file your FPLs, then your alternate airfields will have no knowledge of your FPL, since they don't seem to be on the transmission list. Not ideal if you have to use the alternate for a diversion.
Anybody else seen this, or am I not doing something right ??
