Toronto SIDs

Recommended Posts

When trying to use SIDS in creating a flight plan from Toronto to Halifax a funny thing happened. The individual SIDS would only appear on screen after one was selected. No prior view. In the menu bar, only select was available. The display square was greyed out. Never saw this before at any airport. It didn't hurt the flight plan but is puzzling.

Hi Jack,

what you describe is correct and fully intentional.

Before you select a SID (same holds for STARs and transitions), the Display button does not do anything, and the Delete button is inactive, because there is nothing to delete. You can only select.

From the list box you select one of more SIDs which you then see on the map window, so you can select the one most suitable. Note that you can only "add to flight plan" if a single SID has been selected. Trivially, you cannot add ´more than one. If you close the SID selection window, the previously selected SIDs are still visible and the Display button is checked. To make them invisible, you uncheck Display.

I'm not sure what you mean by "prior view"

Regards

Sascha

Sascha................

Thanks for the reply. I understand, now. To tell you the truth, I've forgotten what I meant by "prior view". Couldn't have beenv ery important though.
