Hi, have made a report to PMDG for SID worry on VNKT airport and I confirm the fix to pmdg work.
If this is possible to correct this definitively.
This is due to how navigraph is implementikg these SID. For example see below after departure they have put that you need to ruturn to RNWY02 which is not possible as you just left this runway. Try deleting the RNW02 FIX from LEGS age and have the first one KT414
We can´t - because these RWY ident is defined in the AIP as IF (initial fix) … and therefore we can´t delete it in general. The question is, is this “only” a ND issue or do the addon really turn to “catch” the RWY waypoint after t/o?
But anyway what I know is, that you also can remove it on the legs-page of the FMC.
The addon is PMDG 737-700 recent version.
On one attempt the A/C (in LNAV) turned left instead of per the SID routing. On a second attempt (where LNAV was activated later it turned right in a tighter turn then the SID (in fact not following the SID…).
I will make another attempt to see what’s happening.
Just made another attempt. This time the SID did not load (I fowled up the data per above so it gave me an error and did not load…).
Typed in the SID waypoints in the FMC and everything was fine. No abnormal arcs etc. The A/C followed the SID perfectly.
Conclusion for me is - The SID at VNKT as is, creates above anomalies in the Magenta line.
No sorry - but we are working with PMDG on a new, modern format which makes a lot of things easier - also for PMDG. But the procedure is correct coded and in most cases, the a/c follow the path correctly, only the magenta line on the ND looks a little bit strange.
I agree with PMDG, this is not consistent. The runway threshold fix is not specified on all SIDs, so this also makes me think of a return to the runway threshold.
Otherwise, at the start of an 02 we should have a fix on the end of the runway, i.e. FIX RW20.
Have verified each FIX coordinate to be sure to understand.
Again, all the fixes comes directly from the AIP of the country and are not a specific interpretation of the data provider (at least for standard). Therefore, when you mean this is incorrect, please report this to the goverment of Nepal …
All SIDs have a “climb straight ahead” but from where, when you have no reference (IF) point … Therefore the current runway is important and not the opposite one …
