OK, I give up, where is it ? TO/GA Question

Recommended Posts

Greetings,I just installed the update and had a question. In the old version, if you wanted to just take off without a flight plan and use the AT and not program the FMC, I did the following: Set speed, turn off/on the generators, hit the FD and AT buttons, then hit the N1 and she was good to go down the runway. That doesn't seem to be the case now. Is there is separate TO/GA button somewhere that I can't see. I can't for the life of me find it if in fact, there is one. I know you have to use TO/GA mode for under 400ft. but I could use a little help here, please?Thank you for your help.Sincerely,Hans Groenewold

I read that in the manual, but WHY? Is there no TO/GA button on the real plane? Sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm just getting into this plane - and LOVE it!Volker Jansen

There is a TOGA button in the real plane, and if you go to the VC, you can see exactly where (little black buttons on the throttle handles). This location is a bit awkward for the 2D cockpit though, so we placed it on the MCP for convenience.You can use the TOGA buttons in the VC (they are clickable ;-))VinPMDGwww.precisionmanuals.comhttp://www.vinscimone.com/dancnkid.gifhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/devteam.jpg

Wow, that was fast! Thank you both :) I'm really happy with the 737NG, it's the first airliner that I really like to fly. Add the free liveries and the fantastic support by dedicated users and beta testers ... wonderful!VOlker :]

Thanks Guys,I really appreciate the quick and kind response. I was almost expecting a scolding for not reading the manual, which I did do to find this. I looked and looked and just could not find it. A screw on the MCP, I was looking right at it. My compliments on the plane, it doesn't get much better than this. Thanks again.Sincerely,Hans Groenewold
