http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/Gives you a correct route based on the current AIRAC cycle, but if you fly for a VA, they might have special routes for the company over the pond.You will have to enter the FP manually into the FMC, when finished click "rte copy". You'll get a confirmation saying someting like "saved EGLLKFJK001", which is the name you enter into the FMC next time you want to use it. I don't know if there is somewhere you can pick up pre-made flightplans for the PMDG FMC.

Hello - is it Troy?The items SID at the beginning of your flight plan and STAR at the end are only placeholders - you don't enter them as 'SID' and 'STAR'. SIDs are standard departure procedures and STARs are standard arrival procedures that are airport-specific. If you like, you can just leave these out of your flight plan. But if you want to 'do it right', do the following...Take a look at the charts for EGLL and you'll find one that shows SIDs that take you from the runway to your first waypoint BUZAD. This will be BUZAD2K for rwy 09L or BUZAD3J for 09R.However, if you're leaving from rwy 27, then your SID will be WOBUN2F for 27R or WOBUN2G for 27L. In this case, you first waypoint won't be BUZAD at all, but WOBUN.Similary, the charts for KJFK will include a STAR that will bring you from ENE to a holding point for KJFK. Then, to get from the holding point to the runway you'll need an IAP (Instrument Approach Procedure) - also among the KJFK charts.I've never done what you're attempting, so anyone with EGLL or KJFK experience please feel free to correct me.CheersGeoff
