Manual Setting of Vref?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,working on the tutorial, in the first flight the trainee never touches the FMC, but sets V speeds manually. I've run into the following problems:Setting the bugs for V1 and VR work correctly, but there's no callout as those speeds are reached (no biggy).Once in flight, I make a big circuit at 2500 feet and attempt to set Vref manually - no luck. On the approach the FMC alert light comes on cause it's not set.Can you check this functionality? If Vref setting doesn't work, I can teach around it. But if it does work, I need to know what I'm doing wrong.

I didn't see anything in the AOM on calculating Vref, only on runway length, etc.

Tim,You would have to get a hold of a set of Landing or Take-off number Flip cards. They would give you the various numbers for different weights and flap settings. As far as determining which flap setting to use with which runway. Have to ask your dispatcher :-)RegardsPaul Gollnick :-cool Technical Operations/Customer Operational SupportPrecision Manuals Development Groupwww.precisionmanuals.comhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/devteam.jpg
