Across the world, many of the most famous airports have famous approach plans but for me, i am not an expert in aviation nor understand the approach plans, plates and STARs…so i am looking for something a little more bespoke.
My hope is that by creating this thread, users can share waypoint routes (Grid co-ordinate driven for accuracy) for the most famous of approaches. I recognise that approach plans are more than just a route, but for the interest of recreation and simulation I’m sure a waypoint guide would do great!
If someone wishes to make this a Wiki, my hope is that we can create a little source of waypoint led approach plans, for the less expert of us.
Waypoints: Other info:
Thread search created. During search I identified a similar post that is more of a feature request, this is designed as a wiki led post.
I think people are looking to fill the gap between the STAR and the runway. The STAR only gets them so far. Even SimBrief only gets them so far and from there its up to the pilot and ATC to get them to the runway.
If you do include the appraoch I would include altitude for better descent planning.
Google. It’s just as efficient and practical to google the approach plate(s) that one is looking for. I’m having a hard time to see how this would exactly be beneficial based on the examples you already shared.
There’s a lot of waypoints that need updating as well. For instance the ROBUC3 into KBOS is missing quite a few waypoints but the runway transitions are valid-at Virtual Blue we fly a hybrid between the KRANN3 and ROBUC3
I’d be glad to help out anyone in understanding the charts and such. We’ve even created “vectoring” waypoint Routes into KJFK off the LENDY6 Star that coincide with the most common vectors that ATC will give an aircraft.
Also-here’s “vectors” to the VOR/GPS to KJFK 13L (from the LENDY6) as well as vectors to the ILS 13L. Both of these routes have been validated by real world JetBlue Pilots
GOATZ: Enter FL016 at 35 and maintain altitude.
3323N/11823W: turn right head direct to 3322N/11809W heading 082, descend to 14,000ft
3322N/11809W: turn left head direct to 3326N/11760W heading 34, descend to 12,000ft.
3326N/11760W: turn left head direct to SHUSA heading 346, descend to 9000ft.
SHUSA: head direct to SHUSA heading 346, descend to 8000ft.
DIXNN: turn left head direct to SLI heading 332, descend to 7000ft
SLI: turn left head direct to VPLFX heading 326, descend to 5000ft
VPLFX: turn left direct to HUNDA heading 314 until you intercept the ILS, descend to 3400ft
HUNDA: on ILS 25L, direct to LIMMA heading 251, descend to 1900ft
LIMMA: direct to LADLE heading 251, altitude provided by the glide slope.
LADLE: heading 251, land.
Or you could read the arrival and approach charts:
It’s a tight one Lou! You have to stay EAST of the CRI VOR-almost fly JUST inside of the waypoint circle-if you get outside the circle and don’t get up to 3500+ pretty quickly, you’ll run the risk of drifting into both LGA traffic and JFK traffic. Over at VirtualBlue we’ve spent HOURS upon HOURS creating routes with full SID/STAR/ILS procedures-personally I cant freakin wait for a flight director and VNAV to help us out a bit lol.
