DME arcs in SID procedures

Recommended Posts

Guest pepribal

I've realized in SIDs with DME arcs that the arc is not really followed by my A320. Instead of that, I see a straight leg between the two fixes that define the arc, the last of which is always named 'AF'.Is this a normal behaviour or am I doing something wrong?Thanks.

There is no easy way for an Airbus to fly a DME arc. Rob has linked elsewhere in this forum his excellent tutorial on programming these but basically you need to make a series of waypoints in order to shorten the legs and "round off" the straight leg.The same is true in the real aircraft.
