Creating procedural SID's TRACON 2012 EDITOR


Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm trying to recreate my sector in tracon2012 but I'm not really sure how to setup this procedure.... We don't have any STARS or GPS NAvigation so pretty much all traffic inbound, when entering the area is vectored to the ILS. We do have a central VOR and I believe the best way to setup this would be create "stars" for each boundary waypoint direct to our VOR. Would you do it differently? Also I have a problem with my SID's. Our east departures have published SID's because waypoints have radar coverage but for all western departures our procedure is "track extended rwy centerline until 4700 then resume own navigation" Because all departures in the editor are POINT based how do I set this up? Thanks for all the help.


In case you need references lookup LPLA charts on this website:


and here is the link for my sector so far...

On the Jeppesen chart for Rwys 15, 33 Omnidirectional Departures it reads "climb on runway track to 4700', upon reaching resume own navigation as filed". Assuming this is what you are talking about, basically what I was going to suggest is what you've already done with the OD15 and OD33 SIDs you created. 

Now I think that leaves you with two options: (1) add another leg to the SID and choose an exit point somewhere to the west or (2)  leave the SIDs asis and as a controller turn the planes west near the end point of the SID. Option 1 would have planes all fly the exact same routes when heading west and option 2 would be a little more dynamic (ie., you can choose a heading that might be more appropriate for the destination).
