    Standard Geneva - unrealistic SIDs for runway 22

    Hi guys,

    maybe you have a good reason for it, but in the real world traffic in Geneva is sent towards UN871 via KONIL SIDs and not via MOLUS SIDs, even if pilots file "MOLUS" as their first waypoint in their flightplans. This is standard and done for all flights that I have ever performed myself there.

    Cheers, Andreas
    Gruss, Andreas

    Hi Andreas

    I'm well aware of that fact. As far as I know, this practise is used for aircraft up to Medium WTC (which covers your aircraft) and if weather conditions are not too bad. We have already challenging routings to provide outbound Geneva for departures via ARBOS, DEPUL and SIROD (because not all of these waypoints are served with an SID from both runway) where we need to provide additional information to pilots about the departure routing. Unfortunately, a lot of pilots struggle with such clearances, which often requires additional transmissions and explanations. It seems this is above the average VATSIM pilots capabilities. So, I think it is fair to make a simplification in the world of VATSIM at this point for routings where no such clearance is essential.

    From my experience it is a matter of practicality, the effort of reclearing most VATSIM pilots is just too burdensome. I personally wouldn't mind doing it for the sake of realism, however my experience trying to reclear pilots is you end up in this endless cycle of "confirm via KONIL/Z63/SOSAL/as filed?" "why? now i need to reprogram my FMC..." "i can't reprogram my fmc can you give vectors instead?".

    Sure there are quite a lot of pilots who will very easily take the rerouting, but even if it was half-half, it's just too much effort when its busy.
    Cheers,

    Alasdair

    I agree with you Andreas, that the KONIL makes more sense operation wise, as the MOLUS 22 crosses all left hand downwind arrivals for 22 which are descending. It can be a tiny challenge when staffing arrival ;-).
    KONIL on the otherhand as the advantage that once aircrafts clear 6000ft you can send them direct to MOLUS, which make the departing aircraft climb above the ILS 22 and managing better the airspace (less conflicts).

    KONIL is also more fun to fly pilotwise, and it takes less time to arrive to MOLUS waypoint via KONIL rather than MOLUS dep (good for real-life pilots). Every time I can, I fly KONIL as well :-)

    But as Alasdair and Jonas said, changing a routing on VATSIM is very complex as pilots often have a limited knowledge of their airplane and of the sourrounding airspace. Asking a vatsim pilot to change between SIROD and DIPIR is not always simple (but neccessary). So I prefer not to change a pilot to KONIL, except if I know the pilot and know that he will be able to switch easily.

    However I think that pilots should request KONIL more often, the problem is that most route databases suggest MOLUS (and I do not really know why, maybe because KONIL is available only in 22, while MOLUS is 22 and 05 available?).

    Please feel free to request us a KONIL departure next time you fly out of Geneva !
