SIDs and STARs

Is it still true that Infinite Flight updates their STAR/SID data from Navblue every 28 days?

Just wondering, because I just learned that ENGM has new approach routes for noise reduction and that would be nice to have implemented into the STAR/SID charts


Once I asked cameron, and he told me that it was updated once a year.

Really? Once a year

I think they update it every update.

Yeah, I thought it was something like that

That would make sense.

Agree with you

No IF doesn’t follow the AIRAC cycles.


They don’t?

Allegedly it is too expensive for what the developers see as a marginal improvement in experience. 😕


Ah, that’s sad. Thank you so much

Some of them are already in the game, just look.

However, the data at some airports (particularly non-US) is incredibly outdated (and will likely always be).

Is it difficult to update SIDs and STARs?

But yeah, some SIDs and STARs are really bad

It’s a money thing. However I should’ve also added, the FAA administered airports have their data pulled from the FAA directly every 56-28 days, which it is I don’t recall. So US is all up to date, the world airports IF purchases the nav data under from NavBlue.

AIRAC isn’t followed in the sim. Usually there’s not too much difference unless A SID/STAR at an aerodrome has changes between cycles. Well in this case, ENGM did go through quite the change.

They ditched point merge? Interesting

And the arrival looks so much smoother then we already have in the sim

Not sure I’m know what you are thinking about, please tell me
