DP's and IAP's

Author Message

Greetings fellow simpilots,

Although not totally new to sim flying, I'm confused about real life info... being from the Boston area, I've decided to "follow" the Red Sox around this season. I've been going to the FAA site to get airport diagrams and the like. Question: What is the reason for multiple DP's and IAP's? Is it related to the direction in which you plan to go once in the air? Or from what direction you plan to approach the airport? How do you decide which one you need?

It is based on where you are planning to go to/come from. So if you were flying to Barcelona 25R and you were flying via Pumal, you would probably fly a Pumal3T STAR. Likewise, if you were taking off from Gatwick and flying to Clacton, you would probably carry out a Clacton3X (or Clacton8M if you're not using RNAV).
