More madness?

Post by Budlake » Wed Feb 18, 2015 4:35 am

Route: RUDER UR78 ALSUS UB15 VESAR UN135 IMR UN127 RIKSO UP14 PINDO UN79 RODON UL611 ROTAR UL615 AKADO UL613 RLP UT10 IRBAL UT421 KUNAV FL295-420

Error message: "ERRORS AT FL = 300:
(FPL-LOT001-IS -B738/M-SDRWY/S -LCLK0850 -N0430F300 RUDER UR78 ALSUS UB15 VESAR UN135 IMR UN127 RIKSO UP14 PINDO UN79 RODON UL611 ROTAR UL615 AKADO UL613 RLP UT10 IRBAL UT421 KUNAV -EGKK0525 -PBN/B4) PROF195: RIKSO UP14 PINDO DOES NOT EXIST IN FL RANGE"

This is too criptic for me, it might be more helpful, and perhaps informative, to tell me what FL range is acceptable.
This airway is important because it saves nearly a 100miles on a flight from LCLK to EGKK. Again, because of the infinite wisdom of people who make edicts that result in the inefficient use of airways and airspace in Europe, there only appears to be one viable SID out of Larnaca (RUDER).

It has always been my understanding that a SID and a STAR mates an airfield to the airway system. Like yesterday's example with departures from Edinburgh airways restrictions have made SIDs, and indeed the airways, at Larnaca pointless.
Examples:
BONEK; cannot fly UR19/UM601 because of LC2002A,
LUBES; cannot fly UR78/UM978, again, because of LC2002A,
PAFOS; cannot fly UM31 because UG18/UL609 is not available to RDS because of LC2005A

Flight planning is an important and often very enjoyable and satifying part of virtual flying but it has been my experiences, almost without exception, that planning in Europe is a nightmare which is often frustrating at the best and most unenjoyable at the worst. This is so not because of the multitudinous number of airways (one would expect that to make life somewhat easier) but because of the inefficiency in the design of the airways system and the vast amount of, often, ridiculous restrictions that pretend to solve problems but must surely exacerbate them instead.
