Hi Anthony,You could update your FMC on the fly as required to accommodate ATC.Or, if ATC starts vectoring you to final (common) you can just take the autopilot out of LNAV and go into Heading Select mode.Cheers,Bryan

Thank you Bryan,I'll try that way but doing so i think I won't follow the STAR.I dont know if real life pilot usually follow ATC vectors or not but, if not, how can I simulate real flight obtaining clearance and dont being vectored ?In FSX seems that only vectored flights are allowed when u have a flight plan ! Hope I'm wrong.Thanks again. Cheers, Anthony

Hi Anthony,There's no real cut and dry answer to this, other than to say it depends on the situation.ATC vectors are very common.I might suggest listening to live streaming ATC over the internet or buying one those 'from the cockpit' type DVD movies so you can 'see' how things work.Cheers,Bryan
