FMC Final Approach Fixes?

Recommended Posts

Letting the autopilot fly the STAR is all very well, but the lat part always results in a straight line to the landing runway threshold (i.e. no real approach).Is there an easy way to create/programme into the FMC nav system a Final Approach Fix on the landing runway heading, for example 8 or 10 miles from touchdown?Thanks for any help.Toni.

Toni,On the ARR page on the CDU you can create a runway extension waypoint (RWY EXT I think) on the right side. Enter the distance from the RWY treshold before EXECuting the ARR. This can be used for a FAF for example.Hope it helps,
