Real life flight plan showing nonexistent SID

Recommended Posts

FlightAware's flight analyzer shows the most frequently used route between PAJN and KSEA.




It's showing numerous recent flights (including today) using that route.  But I can't find any listing or information for a GLAZZ1 SID.  It is not listed on the official FAA website's list of terminal procedures for PAJN or on other sources of terminal procedures that I use.   Anyone know why this is?

Some airlines have their own departure procedures. Alaska Airlines have a few and they are unpublished.

Alaska flying is a little more risky than elsewhere; mountains, weather, etc. Alaska Airlines ha a submitted and gotten approval for its own approach and departure procedures. I guess they've proven that their pilots are proficient in flying the tighter procedures. They're property of the airline and not published. Someone managed to get some of them from the airline and they're on avsim in the library.


Juneau in particular is surrounded by terrain. The procedures probably fly closer to terrain than normally allowed and save thre airline a lot of money, but Alaska has adequately proven they have and maintain the equipment to safely fly them.
