AIRAC *instead of* local


Recommended Posts

Jake,

Quick question. It is my understanding that VatSys uses Navigraph data, however does this mean we don't have to define Fixes, SIDs etc in Airspace.xml or do they still have to be defined?

I'm working on a sector at the moment and have defined SIDs using RegEx formats but am getting a "SID not found error".

Cheers!

Yes, you can rely solely on the Navigraph data if you choose. 

For <SystemRunways> you cannot mix and match the two though, if you define some SIDs and STARs (<SIDSTARs>) for a particular Airport in Airspace.xml, vatSys will ignore the Navigraph SIDs and STARs (for that airport) and only search the ones you defined instead.

Question on the same vein, just logged in for a quick test and with no SIDs/STARs defined, I get no option to allocate a SID/STAR on the Flightstrip window. Do they have to be defined somewhere (outside of the Airspace.xml perhaps) for this to happen?

Assign a runway first. 

The SystemRunways you define are how vatsys knows which SIDS and STARs to load and make available

<SystemRunways> defines runways you can choose from the popup menu in vatSys, and maps those runways to the SIDs and STARs that have defined either in Navigraph or elsewhere in Airspace.xml. That's why you can use the Regex pattern matching for the names. When you select a runway in vatSys, it chooses the most appropriate SID or STAR that you've mapped to that runway. You can see how this works in the Australia profile, where there are "fake" runways, such as 23V - that maps a Victor (visual terminating) STAR to the selection of that runway.

Jake, further to the above. having some issues with BIKF SIDs/STARs. Some are being recognised, others aren't using REGEX.

PSB Section of SystemRunways and image of error that's being thrown. I have tried {5} and {4} in the REGEXs.

Remove these definitions if you want to use the Navigraph data. As I said above, it’s one or the other. No mixing and matching currently.
