Question about a SID and a STAR in a flightplan

Recommended Posts


I have generated a flight plan with PFPX, it contains the following route:

Takeoff: runway 24, SID: KUDA1S
Landing: runway 25R, STAR: WODY7A

I tried it in version and in version, using AIRAC cycle 1713.

When I import the flightplan with the 'Impt' button and file the flightplan, no SID and STAR is loaded. 
Is this correct? The options 'ATC Assigns SIDs' and 'ATC Assigns STARs' are unchecked. The option 'Force Pilot Runway Selection' is checked.
I was expecting that the SID and STAR would be loaded as well. Or should I manually specify those after I import the flightplan?

I hope somebody can tell me what the correct procedure is.

Yes, that is correct.  Imported flight plans purposely removes all procedures.

You would need to then select them using the SID, STAR and Approach buttons.  Importing the plan to your FMC would do the same thing.  This is because the route (en-route waypoints) won't change, but the procedures all change based on weather and runway selection.
