fly star <expr>

flies a STAR (standard instrument arrival route).  <expr> is STAR name. Either use STAR name alone or STAR name + runway + first waypointname. Example: EDDF has, in star.txt, two stars named PSA07S. One of them is named [EDDF/PSA07S/RW07R /PSA]. Either use ‘PSA07S’ (will fly the first one of the two) or, more specifically, use ‘PSA07S RW07R PSA’

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

To find relevant STARS either use the flight plan editor or use aircraft charts. All STAR names are included in the file star.txt in the AIRAC subdirectory. A trick to find relevant STARS is: Fly to the desired airport with FSXPilot. Select the airport when you are about 300 nm away from the target. Go to the quickselect menu and open the "STAR" submenu. Here all STAR's are listed and can be chosen according to their distance  from current aircraft location.
