Hello everyone,i just bought the fantastic 737 NG from pmdg and have a question.I know what Sids and Stars are since i used to be a dispatcher, but can anyone tell me if u enter a Sid or/and Star in the FMC, will the aircraft fly them automatically on the autopilot?? or do u take yr charts and fly them manually ??i tried to find inof on bought forum and pmdg sites but couldnt see anything !Tnx in advanceEric - Rio de JAneiro

If you engage the autopilot CMD and LNAV and VNAV modes at 400ft after takeoff, yes the aircraft will fly the SID path and meet any altitude/speed restrictions along the way... Same applies to the STARs - if you're in LNAV and have a valid VNAV path for the plane to descend by, it will do it automatically.Ryan

I've had no problem activating VNAV mode at 500 ft and having the FMC fly a full SID.
