The display options below refer to the menu selections for VRC under the VIEW menu and for Euroscope under the OTHER SET/Display Settings.
SIDs and STARs routes (only in TMA sector files) are displayed by selecting DIAGRAMS (VRC) and Sids or Stars (Euroscope)
When responsibility for TMA Airspace is shared amongst Approach, Departure and Director positions the airspace boundaries are displayed as Stars based on the runway configuration. For Sydney, if runways 34L & R are in use, the airspace configuration is displayed by selecting the STAR (SY) RWY34LR. Refer to the Local Instructions in the documentation section for airspace ownership details.
In the vic_tma sector file, the ML Coffin (SFC-1500 released by ML_APP(MAE)) and SE Quadrant (SFC -2000 when EN_TWR is active) airspace can be displayed as a SID when active. Refer to the Melbourne Local Instructions
Minimum Vectoring Altitudes (MVA) areas that are restricted by terrain are in the STARs list. To display the MVA area in Sydney, restricted to 1,800ft, select the (SY) 18T_MVA Star.
Runway and taxiways for major airports are stored as regions in the sector files and are displayed by selecting Regions (VRC) or Regions followed by the airport (Euroscope)
Euroscope allows a finer selection for displaying labels within the Free Text display section. The labels cover all of Australia in each sector file and the airport is identified by the airport NavAid abbreviation.
