Departure Procedures

Hey can someone please tell me how these work because I’m not fully sure what will me plane do if I go through it thanks:)

This looks like a rogue waypoint. What SID have you chosen?

In this case, I would ignore it. When you are close to turning to the leg of this waypoint, simply tap on the next fix after this one and tap “Activate Leg”. The autopilot will then not fly to this waypoint.

So if I wanted to do this I would just have to change the leg?

Yes, the waypoint that is sticking out is not correct. FYI, here’s the NELS3W departure from EGNM which does not have this waypoint.

Its NELS3W

Okay so it’s just a faulty SID

Thank you for the support:)

Yup, just some error in the database. Not a problem, take care :)

Not necessarily faulty, it is a conventional SID that has the VOR implemented as a WPT, and this is the wrong part because in reality only its radials are used (refer to chart). I’d fly towards the VOR until 11DME and then turn right to establish on the westbound leg, as depicted on the chart.
