Hi Andreij, thx for the clarification, yes it SE,STV instead of this what I wrote above...
Greetings !!

Gary Oliver


STV added as an option.





Hi Gary, I'm getting an error when adding a new flight plan. In the browser console window:

blazor.server.js:19 [2021-05-22T10:39:25.389Z] Error: There was an unhandled exception on the current circuit, so this circuit will be terminated. For more details turn on detailed exceptions by setting 'DetailedErrors: true' in 'appSettings.Development.json' or set 'CircuitOptions.DetailedErrors'.

The plan I tried to add is BAW 848 from OTHH - WMKK at 1410.

Gary Oliver


Try again that should work... was an issue with OTHH in the database.

Hi Gary, just tried Bacars v6.0.5 and everything seems to be working fine. Thanks for the update!



Hello, Gary,
Thanks for the great dispatch system. Is it possible for me to request adding China Airlines as one of the airlines option? IATA: CI, ICAO: CAL. Thanks in advanced!

Chi-cheng Liu



Thanks for the update ... V6.0.5 is working flawlessly here.

Is there any chance that you can add a tweak so that BACARS can take a fuel entry in LBS in excess of the total allowable amount it can parse in KGS? There are heathens amongst us who like to fly mixed fleets some of which still like to use lbs as the weight index?

The maximum number would never exceed 383000 unless somebody tried to fly an ER PAX in lbs.

Enjoy your WorldFlighting

Hi Gary
I am updating the Guide to the latest release (will take some time still, because I want to take screenshots of the newest Outputs as well). One Question: Are the Correction Code 82 (IFE Antenna fitted) and 87 (WIFI Antenna fitted) still included?

@all BA Pilots: It would be interesting, if there are any other equpment related Performance Correction Codes available. 

Kind Regards

Gary Oliver


I only copied the first page of codes in the change log, I'll add the rest (80-99) when I get home.

Thank you so much! Gary. If we can have the flightplan in CAL's format would be great. If it's too much trouble, I can stick with the LIDO one. Thank you!

Greg Hateley

Could I ask some help from thoes who have got V6.0.7 working.
Everything has "green" boxes except "winds" (Red)
Any ideas of what I have missed here.
At the moment we are still manually copy and pasting the upper winds into psx.



Hi Greg,
same here, I always copy the winds from Simbrief sheet into PSX.

Gary Oliver


The winds uplink only works for BA format flight plans it seems.

I promised the QFA team to take a look for them, so I will look for you guys too!



I know I'm missing something obvious, but where do I find the BACARS manual? Thanks!
