I saw that a similar problem already has been reported in another topic but without proper solution (the post marked as “solution” doesn’t reflect an answer to the actual problem in any way) and since it has been locked for further answers, I want to try to clarify the whole thing a bit in this topic.
As previously mentioned by the other author, all westbound SIDs in Berlin have been shortened down to the waypoints LOGDO and SUKIP.
To give you the simplest and shortest route from Berlin as an example, it leads to Hamburg:
The old route could have been: SOGMA M748 RARUP RARU1P. In fact, it is (and was) the second suggested route by SimBrief and also irl-filed routing till AIRAC 2203 came out.
So far so good. But validating it through Eurocontrol leads to the error “ROUTE135: THE SID LIMIT IS EXCEEDED FOR AERODROME EDDB [EDDB5D] CONNECTING TO SOGMA.”
That makes sense, because SOGMA SIDs have been replaced by the routing SUKIP M748 SOGMA.
Therefore SimBrief can’t find any valid SID for SOGMA anymore, because there simply isn’t and that is why it suggests a direct SOGMA after departure.
The main problem is not, like suggested by a moderator in the similar opened topic, that direct routings are not allowed in Berlin (it is common thing to file no SID IRL, but the starting waypoint (first route waypoint) it has to be an actual SID point and not an outdated SID Point like SOGMA). The main problem is that outdated routes are filed daily. And it would mean the world to us if you could take out the invalid routes and finally not mark routes as “valid for AIRAC 2203” anymore if they really, really, aren’t.
