Sids and Stars using Skyvector


Recommended Posts

I've having some problems trying to learn how to do flight planning with Sids and Stars using SkyVector . I have a payware plane with Navigraph support and have installed the current airac 1809. I selected a route KDCA TO KPHL using the DOCTR4 DQO route. I was able to find the Sid ok but I had trouble finding the Star for KPHL. I finally stumbled onto it but I am finding it difficult to find the right Sid and Star charts . I assume the Sid is the first waypoint on the route and the last waypoint is the Star. However, I often can't find a chart that matches the waypoint.


I'm not new to simming but I am a noob when it comes to Sids and Stars. Any help would be appreciated.

There is no STAR on that route. After crossing the Dupont VOR (if not before) you would be following ATC vectors to final.


If I may make a suggestion. Try a longer flight, 100 nm is pretty short to need a SID and a STAR.

Never argue with idiots.

They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience
