Sids at Vancouver (CYVR)

Recommended Posts

After completing a Flight Plan from CYVR to CYYC, I attempted to insert a SID as listed for CYVR. Although there seems to be a complete listing of SIDS, when trying to make a selection, nothing happens. I tried every possible SID but none were ever activated.

 

Any solution to this?

Otto...........

A correction.  I misread your response, so here's what happened.

 

No, I didn't click on "add to plan" because there was nothing to click. In other words, as I clicked a SID in the list, there was no showing of it in the visual representation of the Flight Plan as should happen.

That might happen, when your zoom level does not fit to the SID, some start far away from the airport. I just checked it and it works fine, I can see any SID at CYVR and they are inserted into the flightplan when clicking the button at the right of the SID/STAR window..

 

So just to make sure:

- mark the dep airport (CYVR) in the flightplan list

- open the SID/STAR/TRANS window

- choose SID

- select a SID and it will be shown on the map

- click "Add..."

That's it.

Nope.  Didn't work.  Tried distances 50 miles up to 150 miles.  Nothing showed.

 

Looking at your pic, I noticed that the airport Vancouver wasn't selected at the Flight Plan list.  Also my SID list shows the following:

4 for 8L, 5 for 8R, 1 for 12, 4 for 26L, 2 for 26R, 1 for 30 = 17 Sids

 

Your pic show many more than my list shows.  How is that possible?

 

I'm using Navigraph Airac 1401, which is the most current and FSC 9.5.

Hi Otto,

 

indication of SID has nothing to do with the selected zoomlevel.

You don't have to select the departure airport...only one dep airport is possible.

I've the same problem than Jack. (see shot)

Navigraph Airac 1401, FSC 9.4.HF1.

The reason only can be the Airac-Cycle.

 

Regards, Michael

Michael...........

FYI, I thought about the Airac also and checked Navigraph.  There is a newer version of 1401  (Revision 3) which I installed yesterday.  It didn't help the problem however.  At least at CYVR.

 

I noticed just a bit ago that Airac 1402 has been released this morning.  Possibly that will fix things.

Hello to Jack, Michael and Otto,

 

First I checked whether it is a bug in the FSCommander.
The source code does not show any abnormality,

I have contacted Navigraph. The problem is checked there.

Please be patient.

Volker

Patience is my middle name.(lol)

 

The Flight Plan still works just fine. After takeoff, I just swing around and head for the first waypoint.

There was one thing I forgot to ask you about.  How was it possible for Otto to be able to have that huge number of SIDS show up, since Michael and I didn't even come close to that number?

Hi Jack,

 

Answer by Navigraph:
example GEORGIA4
ALL Departures from CYVR are VECTOR Departures by ATC ... "Climb on 263 ° to 1000 - turn left - 247 °"
The FSCommander can not display vectors and directions as above.

 

How was it possible for Otto to be able to have that huge number of SIDS show up, since Michael and I didn't even come close to that number?

Otto uses the NavDataPro Cycle of Aerosoft.

Volker

Volker............

Thank you for clearing it up. I always thought those folks in Vancouver are a little strange.

 

As I said, the rest of that particular plan is just fine so no large problem for me.

Hi Volker,

 

thanks for Your quick reply.

That was my thought and the charts say too.

Michael
