Do I need to use SIDS and STARS

I’m having a hard time with SIDS and STARS and I would like to know if it’s mandatory to use them.

It is not but it helps a lot and you can only use vnav with sids and stars

When the ATIS says that there are certain SIDs and STARs in affect you must follow those at all times.

It depends what server you are on

It helps a lot with people like me who use Simbreif. It allows us to make realistic approaches and takeoffs into an airport…

I don’t know what to do. I’ve never used these before and now we have to use them. :(

And that’s fine! We’re all going through this together and it’s new for everyone. I highly suggest to take a read and listen to the tutorial below on SIDs and STARs and how it works within the app itself.

Thanks for helping with some of my confusion. I’ve been playing IF since 2012 and it has come a long way in realism. Mods please close this topic.
