I need help with PMDG SID/STAR editing

Recommended Posts

I used the Delta3 (RWY 31) Approach to land at SBFZ (in Brazil) and the FMC presented a path diferent from the chart. After trying a lot of changes, I realized that the PMDG is following the procedure by using the NDB navaid as a reference when the procedure is actually based on the VOR navaid. Both navaids are named FLZ. I would like to know how I could especify which navaid to use. Terry Yingling's Tutorial has no comment on that. The path shows up OK if I comment out (or delete) the NDB definition.
