SID/STAR Help

Recommended Posts

Well i've recently tried to take on the art of writing a SID/STAR. My trial airport was FLL and the FLL9 SID. Any help fixing this up would be greatly appreciated! It keeps saying there's an error in the TRANSITION line 17,81, all these random numbers.SID FLL9 FIX FLL RNW 09L RNW 09R RNW 27L RNW 27R RNW 13 RNW 30 TRANSITION ARKES FIX ARKES RNW 09L RNW 09R RNW 27L RNW 27R RNW 13 RNW 30 TRANSITION BEECH FIX BEECH RNW 09L RNW 09R RNW 27L RNW 27R RNW 13 RNW 30 TRANSITION MNATE FIX MNATE RNW 09L RNW 09R RNW 27L RNW 27R RNW 13 RNW 30 TRANSITION PREDA FIX PREDA RNW 09L RNW 09R RNW 27L RNW 27R RNW 13 RNW 30 TRANSITION THNDR FIX THNDR RNW 09L RNW 09R RNW 27L RNW 27R RNW 13 RNW 30 TRANSITION ZAPPA FIX ZAPPA RNW 13 HDG 90 RNW 9L HDG 95 RNW 9R HDG 95 RNW 27R HDG 275 RNW 27L HDG 275AJ LongCEO - UKjetResearch and Marketing VP - Hyperion Airwayshttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/ng_driver.jpgVATSIM Miami ARTCC Air Traffic ControllerMicrosoft Windows XP Home Edition

AJ,I've only just started looking at this and right off the bat I see you have RNW 31 (opposing 13) written as RNW 30. Also, RNW 31 is not listed with the others in the HDG section and the RNW 13 HDG should be 139 or 140, not 90.That's all I see for the moment, but I'm still looking :)DougDell 8250 (3.06GHz/533FSB)1GB Rambus RAM120MB ATA 100 (7200 RPM)ATI Radeon 9700 Pro (Catalyst 4.5)Audigy 2 Sound (latest drivers)MS Force Feedback 2WindowsXP Pro (SP1)DirectX 9.0b

Hi AJ,First of all, I assume that you have defined the fixes in the FIXES section. If not, you will certainly get an error message.As a general rule, a procedure file have three sections:-common part (SID FLL9 FIX FLL)-runway transition (RNW 09L KEEP TRK UNTIL 1000)-enroute transition (TRANSITION ZAPPA FIX ZAPPA)Set up the file in this order. You can read more about this in Terry's tutorial on page 5. In your procedure, there are some syntax errors. The HDG(or TRK) command, ex "HDG 90" must be followed by HDG 90 until (FEET), or HDG 90 until 5 FROM NAVAID ABC, HDG 90 INTERCEPT RADIAL 160 FROM NAVAID ABC etc. Your SID may look like this(I have used NAVAID instead of FIX here)SID FLL9 NAVAID FLLRNW 13 HDG 90 UNTIL 1000RNW 09L KEEP TRK UNTIL 1000RNW 09R KEEP TRK UNTIL 5 FROM NAVAID FLLRNW 27R KEEP TRK UNTIL 1000RNW 27L KEEP TRK UNTIL 1300RNW 31 HDG 270 UNTIL 1000 TRANSITION ARKES NAVAID ARKES TRANSITION BEECH NAVAID BEECH TRANSITION MNATE NAVAID DHP NAVAID MNATE TRANSITION PREDA NAVAID PREDA TRANSITION THNDR NAVAID THNDR TRANSITION ZAPPA NAVAID ZAPPAThis is an example ONLY, as I don't have charts or know the ap, and will not reflect the real one. You must probably fill in more commands, but it should help you get started.
