OT: MSA notation on STAR charts

Recommended Posts

Sorry for throwing this to the PMDG crew, but I don't know where else to post this and besides, everyone knows PMDG pilots are the smartest of the bunch ;)I've recently started using the Navigraph chart service (which I highly recommend), but am a bit confused by the the Minimum Safe Altitude on their STAR charts, as it lacks a radius from the given fix. Is there a standard radius the STAR MSA refers to, or is it just to be assumed the MSA is only valid on the prescribed course (seems unlikely given the presence of Minimum on Course Alts)?-Lee Barberhttp://home.nc.rr.com/uniuniunium/dvasig.jpg

Hi Lee!everyone knows PMDG pilots are the smartest of the bunch ;)Thank you, thank you!!! hahaMSA are given for a radius of 25 nm around a fix. This fix is normally given. It's normally a beacon on which the approach is based or a beacon verrrrry close to the airport (dutch saying: an exception confirms the rule....)Remcowww.inflightweekly.com
