Hi Domingos:Thanks again for the updated eurswils.bgl file. The answer to your question is to file IFR and use a published STAR and Jeppensen-type approach plate. I have never run into a problem flying a STAR, even to an unfamiliar airport at night in mountainous terrain and IFR. They make sure your crossing altitudes are safe and they steer you around or through the mountains.Alex ChristoffN562ZMinneapolis, MNThermobulb@aol.com

Hello Alex,Did you test the approach to Genoa with the new bgl file? I find it is OK now.As for the flight plan, I always check IFR. Where do I get the STAR information? I have heard about it but I do not know what it really is and how it is used.Regards,

Hello Alex,In my last message under this topic I said I did not know what a "STAR" was. In fact I have them in my Jeppesen package for Europe, but I was not paying them any attention, the same apllying to the SID charts. No I realise that, with the information on them, I can correct my FS flight plan.In the example I gave, flying from Munich to Innsbruck, the FS Flight Planner states a cruise altitude of 6000'. This is not sufficient, as we can read in the STAR chart for Innsbruck, where in the last leg you are required to fly at 12000'.Regards,
