SID with vector

Recommended Posts

Flying out of KLAX I filed SID ORCKA1 

It went well but it wasn't super realistic. ATC left me alone to flight the SID without issues, transfering me from tower to departure then to center. But in real life for this SID you get vectors to KLIPR.

 Is this how P2ATC normally works or do I have the wrong settings?

I couldn't find an ORCKA1 SID for KLAX in the data or online so I couldn't check it out specifically.

In general, if there is a manual transition during a SID, and that is in the database, P2A will give you a vector.  In some cases, the data is not correct or is incomplete and you won't get the vector.

Thanks Dave,

I will try another SID with vectors. It wasn't an issue, I was just wondering if I did something wrong. 

I guess in low traffic conditions ATC will just let you fly the SID. Low traffic is not the norm at klax and listening to liveatc I noticed ATC giving vectors to KLIPR, that's what prompted my question.

orcka1 is a new SID for KLAX, you can find the chart in skyvector. NavDataPro included it in their last update and P2A listed as a one of the SIDs.

Joel,

I was testing with the older NavDataPro that ships with P2A.  I did find it in the newer data and indeed it has the vectored transition in it.

I'll try and get the bug fixed for the next update.

Thanks,

Dave
