#529599 I recently purchased ORBX FTX Northern Rocky Mountains (NRM) during their sale. One of the first thing I do when I get a "global" addon like this that includes airfields...as NRM, CRM, and PNW do...is to go through my addons to make sure I don't have any duplicate airfields in some other scenery folder.

During this process I looked at my up-to-date version of Calgary, CYYC, which includes the new terminal addition, taxiways, and complete runway renumbering, include the addition of 17L-35R, which made the old 16-34 in to 17R-35L. Rather than try to force FTX NRM with it's elevations, autogens, and what-not to accept my version of CYYC I just decided to modify their version.

In doing so I used the CYYC Taxi Chart from Jeppesen in my Navigraph Subscription. In the process of adding 17L-35R and the associated taxiways I noticed something odd. Starting at the 17L (northern) end, according to the chart, the intersecting taxiways in order North to South are D, V, Z, D6, D1, D4, D3, D2, D5, S, Q, and B. That is an odd sequence order for the D# intersections...6,1,4,3,2,5???

Aren't they just asking for a confused pilot who is not paying attention to the chart to make a bad turn on the wrong intersection taxiway? Unless, of course, the chart itself is in error???
