Search Search Dock Window - Procedures

General

Three search tabs are available for airport, navaid and procedure search.

The tab Procedures allows previewing and adding approach and departure procedures to the flight plan. Procedures of a selected airport are arranged in a tree which indicates the dependencies between approaches and transitions.

See the Procedures chapter of this manual for more details.

Procedure legs are shown when a procedure node is expanded in the tree. Procedures can be filtered by runway and type.

Right click on a procedure to get more options in the context menu. This allows centering of the map or adding the procedure to your flight plan.

Use the context menu of the flight plan table to remove procedures like any other waypoint. See Delete Selected Legs or Procedure.

Procedure legs are highlighted in red if one or more navaids could not be resolved. A warning dialog will be displayed if you try to add this procedure to a flight plan.

Filter

The runway filter is always available and helps to find procedures for a certain departure or arrival runway.

The type filter is not available for a default database. A navdata update is needed to get SID and STAR procedures.

The type filter allows the selections below:

  • All Procedures: SID, STAR and approaches
  • Departure Procedures: Only SID
  • Arrival Procedures: STAR and approaches
  • Only Approaches and Transitions: No SID and no STAR

The respective transitions are always shown.
