FMC 'v' speeds

Recommended Posts

Guest pag

Congratulations to all at PMDG for a fantastic product. Best $22 I've spent in a long while.I have one question, if I may. Having entered all necessary data into the FMS including INIT page data I set the desired flap 5 or 10 degrees usually and click the 'v' speed LSKs but nothing happens. If I select Flaps 1, then v speeds are computed (around 269kts for V1!)Am I missing something or could this be a glitch in the programme? It's only a minor point and I can obviously set the speeds manually using the ref tables provided. Just curious to know if I've missed something.RegardsJohn C

You entered your weight in pounds and have your weight setting in kgs in the styles options, or the other way round...anthonyAnthony MertonPrecision Manuals Developmenthttp://www.precisionmanuals.com

>You entered your weight in pounds and have your weight>setting in kgs in the styles options, or the other way>round...DOH! I was entering pounds thinking weight was set as lbs. Didn't a 767 turn into a giant glider a while ago after a similar mistake by refuellers? Makes me feel a teeny bit better, but not much....Thank you gents for taking the trouble to respond and for the speedy replies too.RegardsJohn C
