After you have created your flight plan, and you request pushback, have real life pilots ever changed their flight plan because of a sudden runway change or something?
I ask this because I was doing a flight on Hawaii from PHNL to PHTO, and for you guys that have Hawaii, you know there are huge mountains right behind runway 06. I created my flight plan at PHNL that was originally planned for me to enter right traffic onto a runway, but the winds changed, and the runway that I was going to land at closed. Therefore, I decided to change my FPL in flight so I could enter right base RWY 06. I saw the mountains ahead, and I changed my heading to 40 degrees to the right. I was so focused on fixing my flight plan that I just didn’t see the terrain ahead, and this is what happened… (This is exactly why we need “Terrain Terrain, pull up!”)
So that brings me back to my question. Should you edit your flight plan in flight just because of a runway change?
