So I have a question regarding the transition from certain STARs to approaches that I’ve seen on Infinite Flight. It’s just a question so no need to be rude and tear me apart.
Some of the STARs I’ve seen at some of the airports end at the airport’s VOR, usually directly over the airport. For example, the PARCH3 arrival into John F Kennedy in NY. The arrival takes you to the JFK VOR directly over the airport and doesn’t allow for a smooth transition to an approach like the ILS 31R. You either have to modify the STAR manually to delete the JFK VOR from the STAR (which basically removes the STAR from your flight plan), or you have to disengage LNAV and fly manually to the IAF of the approach.
This is just one example of a few I’ve seen on IF that bring you to a VOR right over the airport. Most of them will just bring you right to the IAF of the approach. Obviously you’re not going to fly to the VOR then back out to the IAF and shoot the approach so what is the correct way to transition to the approach while keeping the STAR filed in your flight plan on Infinite Flight?
I have moderate real world instrument training and experience shooting approaches but have never experienced this kind of a transition so I’m just asking for my own knowledge 🤷🏼♂️
