I'm afraid I don't know how to put that in. Unless you show me.

Agree - it might be helpful for newcomers to have them handy. (The only exception I usually make is for overlapping final ILS/VOR/NDB approaches in OpenRadar - including them all clutters the screen, so I usually just include the ILS one).

Simbambim, just type for example if you want radial 100 of BIG VOR, 32 miles away, BIG/100/32.
That's typed into the route manager.

For me it doesn't work. Maybe not for all airplanes?
Anyway, I was asking how to put it in the procedures file.

Oh and one more question. If a waypoint has minimum and maximum altitude restrictions, will both be read?
Does the route manager follow the altitudes automatically, too, or is it just for pilot's reference? I've never entered altitudes with waypoints.

I'd like to have some little routes too for Aviano, but no idea in how making 'em. Can someone help me?
More or less I need 3-4 lines for rwy 05 landing, 2-3 lines for 05 take-off, 1-2 for rwy 23 both t/o and landing.

It works for me.

Don't have much time right now (I'm writing the SIDs for LOWW), but you can have a look at this Wiki page. The main problem would be finding a copy of the Italian MIL AIP (I haven't managed to find up to date charts for LIPA so far).

lego, what aircraft do you use?
It doesn't work in 737. Only the waypoint is entered in the list, not the numbers - means it's not working?
Besides, how would it determine whether to fly inbound or outbound on the radial?

Were you talking about the OpenRadar file? I was talking about the pilot's route file.
In the EHAM file, all waypoints have a name. On the LSGG chart, some points are defined by radial/distance or even two radials/distances from two VORs. Not for turns, though - only altitude restrictions. So I guess I can skip those?

Ok, yeah, the distance to the next waypoint is showing up in the route manager, though the radial isn't. So it's kinda working.
But I see already that I'll have this problem in SIDs. There's no way to tell it to intercept a certain radial to go to a VOR instead of direct.
So the SIDs will be simplified I guess.

Well, as I told you look at the map! and see, it works!
It shows it flying along the radial!
As long as you have two points on the radial, it will fly along it!

Yes, I saw that it's kinda working, though I didn't try flying. Thanks.
But now I was talking about the procedures file again.
