Hi all,Just got registered. I recently ordered the PMDG 737NG. I want to do a flight from KBHM to KDCA, which is from Birmingham International to Washington National Airport. But when I try to enter the SIDs information for KBHM, it says NONE. Let me explain everything I did:From the menu page, I hit the 1L LSK for FMC. This takes me to the INENT page. I then hit 6R LSK for the POS INIT page. I hit the 6R LSK and takes me to the RTE page. I enter the origin KBHM at 1L LSK and the DEST at 1R LSK. I hit the DEP/ARR button and this takes me to the DEP/ARR page. When I hit the 1L LSK which is DEP, to enter the SIDs, it takes me to the KBHM DEPARTURES page. At 1L LSK, it says SIDs "NONE." So I cannot enter anything from here. Do I have to enter some other information? I'll have to check but I would think that KBHM would have SIDs. Ken.

Aside from the pinned info, I just enter them manually from the terminal procedures charts if they aren't listed in the FMC. KBHM according to http://myairplane.com/ there's only one DP (SID) listed and it simply shows all the surrounding VORs. Not much of a DP. Look here: http://myairplane.com/databases/approach/p...0BIRMINGHAM.PDFI don't have the TPs on paper for this airport either, so I can't say if there's more than one. Happy flying!

Vector DPs (where it's expected that ATC will give you vectors to a fix) such as the Birmingham Three discussed here, are not stored in FMC procedures.Generally, only procedures with defined route segments will be included in the FMC.

Hi all,Yes, I read the Pinned post. I checked the SIDs/STARs for KBHM and there are no SIDs listed. By the way, I have the latest AIRAC and SIDs/STARS. The only thing I know I can do is hit the FIX button on the FMC and enter a fix. This requires me to enter the fix, radial, and distance. I've been looking for a chart that will show this information but I haven't found it yet. Does anyone know where I can find one?Ken.
