Greetings from the flight deck of a Jestar A320, at the moment en route from Sydney to Cairns. I use Ralf’s presets for this flight – [l SID] and [sm STAR]. It’s a very refreshing experience! I listened to the Clearance more carefully as usual and was even a bit nervous
This feeling of uncertainty is really worth it!! We were instructed to fly runway heading and then vectored (a very realistic way). I now look forward to the arrival…
I totally agree with you and thats what i did in my preset which i posted to you. I created two presets one for runway 12L and another for runway30L/R but my problem is how do i know i am going to land on runway 12 or 30L/R before my flight? I understand DSDI will be STAR no matter which runway is in use. How can i load OMDB12 preset before flight and if i do i get runway 30L or 30R?
Ash, when you use a Preset specific
for RWY 12 and you get RWY 30, instructions will be wrong. At the moment, you have the two possibilities:
- Avoid a change of runway OR
- Use a Preset that is okay for all the runways, something like I recommended above (green names only).
That being said... I'm going to build up some tension again
Last night, I successfully tested a 100% reliable way of setting PF3's runway-specific SIDs/STARs names. The problem is that I am very content with the current "static" system as I prefer getting variable, realistic and easy to understand
instructions to hearing real-world names...
