When I design SID or Missed approach procedure with a typical sequence of initial legs like "Climb to 5000 feet on R-123 ABC VOR/DME, turn left/right direct to ABC VOR/DME", the regulation checker of my flight procedure design software (IDS FPDAM) often warn about the below PANS-OPS standard because it considers the leg turning direct to the VOR/DME without track guidance:
3.1.2 Track guidance shall be provided:
b) within 10.0 km (5.4 NM) after completion of turns for turning departures.
Then most of the time I have to assign a specific course to the navaid (VOR Radial or NDB Bearing) for the aircraft to intercept on the way back to the navaid.
I see that if a specific course is not required, the aircraft will turn direct to the navaid on any course which is suitable with its performance. But the aircraft always have track guidance regarding the navaid.
Then, is the software's warning about the leg turning direct to a navaid without track guidance correct or not?
