Sids and Stars with Routefinder?

Recommended Posts

Seems to me when I used to use the free Routefinder, it would also give the name of the Sids and Stars in the flightplan. I don't get these anymore. Is that normal for the free version. I'll post my flightplan from KMCO to KDTW. Thanks, BobComputed route from ORLANDO INTL (KMCO, K7) to DETROIT METRO WAYNE CO (KDTW, K5): 8 fixes, 851.5 nautical milesCruise altitude between FL330 and FL330KMCO (0.0nm) -SID-> IRQ (319.9nm) -J53-> SPA (400.4nm) -J85->NEALS (554.3nm) -J85-> HVQ (599.6nm) -J85-> LAYED (624.5nm) -J134->HNN (635.2nm) -STAR-> KDTW (851.5nm)Details:ID FREQ TRK DIST Coords Name/RemarksKMCO 0 0 N28

Routefinder has never given me the actual sid/star names, but it always plans a flight that intercepts a point along one. Whenever I plan a flight, the last point before the destination is part of a star, and the first before arrival is the end of a sid... etc. You just have to do a quick search of the sids and stars to find out which one you should be flying.

Reggie, when you put a flightplan in does it give you the names of the sids and stars. I think the reason that I stoped using Routefinder, 1 year or so ago, is because it stopped giving me the names of the sids and stars. I'm 99.9 % sure it used to give sids and stars

I don't remember it doing so in the past, but I was never a heavy user of Routefinder.
