How do you know what STAR and transition to use?

Recommended Posts

How are you all figuring out which STAR and transition and so forth to use? I don't know of any sort of "preview" to see what is where on arrival. For takeoff, it's not an issue because I can see the flight path in the display.I use net resources (VATSIM prc, Airnav, FSCharts.com, etc.) but the navdata in the FMS is far, far more extensive...RhettFS box: E8500 (@ 3.80 ghz), AC Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64ASX Client: AMD 3700+ (@ 2.6 ghz), 7800GT

Hi,on SID and STAR I look at the fcst and will see what runways are in use - for dep its easy and for each rnwy you'll find in 99% of the cases only one exit point for your route and only one SID.For arr I use also the fcst and choose a rnwy which is the most likely - then same procedure choose the STAR for your entry point and the TR if avail - I use Navigraph.Before approach I listen to ATIS or see act wx and if nec I change the rnwy - I fly without "ATC"Karl-Heinz - EDDI/THF " Tempelhof "" The mother of all airports " - Sir Norman FosterWill be closed Oct30,2008 - its a shame !http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpg

Is there any sort of program that allows you to "preview" a STAR and its transitions beforehand?RhettFS box: E8500 (@ 3.80 ghz), AC Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64ASX Client: AMD 3700+ (@ 2.6 ghz), 7800GT

Yes, FSBuild2 is a very common, long standing, well supported, flight-planning tool which works with many major add-ons. One feature allows you to prview all the runway dependant SID/STARS. From the transistions of these SID-STARS, I build my exportable flightplan (without the SIDS and STARS) so the FP always lines up nicely with the transitions selected on the FMC/MCDU. It also gives me the chance to review the other various SID/STARS while I create the FP, in case anything changes enroute. Owning both FSC and FSBuild2, I prefer to use FSC on a second monitor with it's moving-map and AI-Display capablity, while I continue to build good FP's with FSBuild2.Regards,

>>Pilots pull out charts. So do I. But not all charts are available on places like Airnav, FSCharts.com, or VATSIM Pilot Resource Center. You'd have to have a service like Navigraph to get them all.>You can get charts/plates on line for>every airport in USA.>And outside the USA? What else is there besides VATSIM, FSCharts, and Navigraph?RhettFS box: E8500 (@ 3.80 ghz), AC Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64ASX Client: AMD 3700+ (@ 2.6 ghz), 7800GT

>And outside the USA? What else is there besides VATSIM,>FSCharts, and Navigraph?Outside the USA? Just use VATSIM's chart finder, and get the charts for the airport you're flying into. What I do is bookmark them each time I fly to a country, that way when I fly out of the US, I can just check my bookmarks. :)
