Terry:Runway 16R/34L at KSEA Seattle Tacoma has been changed to 16C/34C, and this change is reflected in the current airac data from navigraph. I guess they're getting ready to open the new runway next to this one.Thanks for your support, especially your excellent tutorial and willingness to let us modify your procedures and re-issue (with reasonable caveats). I have enjoyed the pursuit of learning to create procedures for others, but you have been my pathfinder. Thanks again.

>I'd say we're all real grateful to both of you guys. Keep it>coming. Makin' it real makes all the difference. A big AMEN to that one!BTW, The change to 16C/34C has to do with two things:a) confusion over taxiway T, which looks suspiciously like a runway, it runs nearly the entire length of 16/34C and is very wide. We had one Aeroflot driver actually try to land on Tango, which precipitated a lot of hand wringing at the Port of Seattle.:( the construction of the new 16R/34L, which will be a little shorter than the previous one (now 16/34C). While the runway will not be completed for another two years; the work is being started on laying the foundations for the concrete, so POS decided to go forward with the renaming of the runways. I guess if an Aeroflot driver can miss it, with the new runway...someone else could with much more dire consequences.Again, thanks for all the hard work on keeping the SID and STARS updated. It's a big job and having it updated makes a huge difference in flying, especially online.Cheers,David LambSenior Captain, United Virtual Airlines
