While creating some additions to SkyView I found it hard to create data items manually…
Over time some code came together and is now available as source code and as batch program for Windows at Github.
It uses mostly publicly available sources (Links are included).
It can create new aircraft & aircraft type databases for use in SkyView (db folder content)
You also may add your own aircraft records for planes you find missing and I don’t know a data source which is legit, updated and free to use for this purpose (and the FA provided one is a bit outdated…). Aircraft types is as actual as the ICAO site (Jul-2019)
It also creates regional geo marker files for airports and navaids (where you define center and range for coverage). Flight information (quality of this source is so,so).
Airways and Fixes are possible but needs 3 input data files which I cannot provide here (XPlane 11 flight sim… $ - may be you own it already then you may use it for this purpose) as I did not find any source for such data online and free to use.
You may find a guide in the doc folder
and then get an executable here:
Primary intent is to support my instrument view extension but you may use it for whatever purpose you can think of…
If anybody wants to port it to a more platform independent tool (Node.JS, Java) - just feel free to do it.
And if you know better sources - let me know, adding them to the tool should be mostly possible if I get an example.
