Adding Landing RW in Fix Pages

Recommended Posts

How come sometimes the CDU will take something like RW24R in the Fix page and other times it won't???  In the case of the latter I use the Airport as a Fix to draw 4 and 10 NM circles around it...

Knowing which plane you're talking about would help since you posted in the general forums. I don't even know if maybe you've tried it in multiple planes where one has that capability and another doesn't.

Yes, you're right Captain Kevin.  NGX and QOTS v3.  Works sometimes, other times tells me "not in database"...

Depends on how the sidstar for that location is constructed.  For any waypoint to be recognized it has to be defined in the navdata.  Something like a runway designation is not normally defined (runways are defined but as runways not waypoints), unless there is an approach with the runway waypoint as a part of it.  Sometimes you will see this on RNAV/GNSS approaches, sometimes not.

Makes sense, thanks for the answer!

Ah!!!!  Makes sense.  If we add the runway to the SIDSTAR file, will that address the missing runway fix ?

No, the runway is a runway and never a waypoint.  You can create a waypoint and name it something like RW07 and located it at the landing threshold of runway 07.  Note that the location is the landing threshold which is not the physical runway if there is a displaced threshold.
