FLIGHT PLANNING

WSSS DEPARTURE PROCEDURES

We will be using the JOHOR BAHRU FOUR ALPHA or EIGHT BRAVO departure.

From 20R head out to w/p SUSIN before turning left for SABUG (be at 4000ft) before heading to AKOMA (above 7000) before finally heading towards JOHOR BAHRU VOR (Above 11000) to follow Airway A457 to Malacca VOR.

If using 02C (preferred if green both directions) then more straight forward! Head to SABUG (be at 4000ft) before heading to AKOMA (above 7000) before finally heading towards JOHOR BAHRU VOR (Above 11000) to follow Airway A457 to Malacca VOR.

I didn’t even know you could execute these successfully in Infinite Flight, best of luck!

The flight plan wasn’t that clear but I will try to figure it out

providing all the waypoints are in the flight area (which they are in this case) then of course you can fly these. It helps when the other pilots and also ATC are also aware of these so that they can also conform.

the beauty of using the filed approach is that ATC Centre and APR need to issue less instructions, more along lines of height, speed and occasional hold instructions rather than having to resort to the full vectoring as all pilots should have the same info.

One of my feature requests is that when you are making a flight plan and you enter a Waypoint on an Airport all the respective SID or STAR show up so you can select the one that you are planning to do then join up the rest of the flight plan. This would help on the flight planning level as well as with ATC so that they could see routes in/out of airports

The main flight plan is From JOHOR BAHRU VOR head towards MALACCA VOR using Airway A457 (Direct) Cruise at FL240 @ 305kts IAS

The first Diagram shows how to leave WSSS to reach the first VOR (JOHOR BAHRU), there are two options either using the 20C, when after take off you turn left and fly past the airport, and the second option where you fly straight out to join the VOR.

The second diagram shows how to fly the arrival from the MALACCA VOR, where you basically turn left to meet the ILS for the runway.

look out for me at the event (I will be in a Qantas B789 callsign QFA14) and you can copy my flight plan

Can Oi take a gate please

Sure John, what Aircraft and callsign will you use?

I will be a C22, so you can use any other B or C gates!

I was talking about the above SID, which I don’t think you could fly in all regions but in some cases you could ;)

yes it does depends which airport in which region and which SID…you have to do a bit of research, but Singapore region is pretty good for both WSSS and WMKK.

Also in some regions some of the Waypoints are missing so you have to do a bit of “guest-I-mate” to get it right!

Yea, thats what I mean, not all of the waypoints are in Infinite Flight, making the SID (if possible) a bit different

My live has expired

I’ll be focusing on national exams for the rest of the year as well, so I don’t see myself getting live any time soon.

That being said, have a great time. Enjoy your flying experience in Singapore! :)

I have updated the SID and STAR with highlighting the different routes to make it easier for you to make and file a flight plan:

If 20C is used for departure then follow the yellow routing
if 02R is used for departure then follow the orange routing

then both follows the blue routing direct

Note the height restrictions.

Follow Blue routing all the way for 34L or Blue then green for 34R

Hi any chance I can attend if so I will take C24
Call sign: QF864
Aircraft: a380
