fly sid  <expr>

flies a SID (standard instrument departure route)  <expr>. Either use SID name only (one argument) or SID longname with three arguments.  

Example: in the AIRAC file sid.txt we have a SID for Munich airport (EDDM):  GIVM5S RW26L /GIVMI .

So you in your flight plan could either use ‘GIVM5S’ or ‘GIVM5S RW26L GIVMI’

FSXPilot will fly the plane to the first waypoint of the SID and follow all subsequent waypoints. Altitude restrictions are not modelled and can be freely chosen by the pilot. After the last waypoint of the SID, FSXPilot will either switch to the next flight plan command or remain on current heading and altitude. 

To find relevant SID'S either use the flight plan editor or use aircraft charts. All SID names are included in the file sid.txt in the AIRAC subdirectory. A trick to find relevant SID'S is: 'run takeoff' from an airport with FSXPilot. Select the SID submenu from the quickselect menu where you find all SID'S listed for subsequent operation.
