FMC Airport data

Recommended Posts

Goodevening all,I have a problem considering to the SID/STAR data in the FMC. I'm planning this evening to fly a flight from Schiphol (EHAM) to London Gatwick (EGKK).When I make this flight in the FMC and when I will select the runway and SID, I only see the runways. I can't select any SID of that airport. It isn't that the airport doesn't have any. They do alright.I've tried to download the EGKK SID/STAR from Navdata webiste but then I can't select the runways nor the sids/stars :-hmmm Who can help me with this.Regards,Guy Haalebos

Guy,I am not near my charts, so I can't see if EHAM has any non-vector SIDs. If EHAM only has vector SIDs, then you will only be able to select a runway on the DEP page for EHAM.Another cause(more likley) is that the DAFIF data that the SID/STARs are derived from lack information about EHAM, and because it lacks information the SID/STARs weren't addd.Not sure what is the cause, but those are my conjectures.

Fred,>I am not near my charts, so I can't see if EHAM has any>non-vector SIDs. If EHAM only has vector SIDs, then you will>only be able to select a runway on the DEP page for EHAM.Schiphol Airport has as dar as i know no vector SID's. I didn't had this problem before so this is kind off new for me. Before I could select any SID from Schiphol airport. Maybe a usefull piece of info: I use the SID/STAR database from 0309. I don't know if this is updated.>Another cause(more likley) is that the DAFIF data that the>SID/STARs are derived from lack information about EHAM, and>because it lacks information the SID/STARs weren't addd.Well Fred, I think you have a point there. But is there a way to change that back into the correct way so the FMC can read the SID's.Regards,Guy

Hello GuyWhich version of the EGKK sid/stars from the Navdata site do you have? I uploaded a new version for SU2 last night. Its also available from my site here:- http://homepage.ntlworld.com/simon.butler2...usefulfiles.htmI have flown most of the sids and many other parts of this EGKK sidstar file without any problem, it is intended to be used with the latest airac. If you are still having problems with it please mail me.I am busy flying parts of the EGCC sidstar file I have done at the moment which I hope to upload this evening before I go to work.simon

Dear GuyI worked on this for about 6 hours today. Click on the link below then click "File" then "Save As" and rename the file Eham. Then place it in the following folder:x:Flight Simulator 9PMDGSIDSTARS folder. Make sure you back up your old EHAM file. http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/53508.txtI got all the data from the Dutch VATSIM site and it incorporates all the RNAV SIDS for EHAM for Runways 9,18L,18C,24,27,36L,36C. These are the only runways that are assigned for departure to the best of my knowledge. (I also did the SIDS for runway 6 but it is apparently only used for Arrivals?)It includes the altitude restrictions aswell as the speed restrictions as stated in the SID's document from the Dutch VATSIM site.I have run limited tests on it, so please let me know if you find anything wrong. I am aware that two SIDS, can't remember which two exactly, are slightly different from the published routes since the fixes mentioned in them do not exist within FS9. I used Fixes that were as close as possible to the published ones so they are almost 100% correct. The rest are by the numbers. EnjoyJohn

GuyThat sounds quite strange, I have not tried to fly to or from EGKK yet so I can't say much about that. As far as EHAM is concerned well I was disappointed that there were no SIDs in the FMC database so I went about creating them myself. I have FS9 so I'm afraid I cannot help you with FS2002 :( SorryGood Luck with it though.John

Although I appreciate Slyman's work, me and another guy have been making a EHAM.txt SID/STAR file that IS correct, we are currently in process of testing it, no problems so far so we'll probably release it very soon.

It isn't that the airport doesn't have any.The DAFIF has no SIDs for EHAM. 11 STARs and 10 IAPs but no SIDs.>I've tried to download the EGKK SID/STAR from Navdata webiste>but then I can't select the runways nor the sids/stars :-hmmmDAFIF has no procedures for EGFF.That explains it but sorry it does not help get what you want. The procedures will have to be designed by someone.RegardsTerry

Sir, with all due respect Slyman doesn't deserve the kinda grief you are giving over his 'incorrect' SID/STAR file.
