Autopilot in PMDG. Please Help

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am stuck on the intruductory flight that the 737-600/700 add-on gives you. On the takeoff section in the manual it says....'Check the settings on MCP. The speed should be set to v2 + 10kts. HDG should be 237 and ALT set to 10000.'first question.Do i have to get in touch with ATC via the ' key and number commands? If so where do i go? East, West, Depart straight out, Remain in pattern?2nd question.Do i have to punch the headings, altitude etc for takeoff into the MCP like i would if i werent using the mod? And where would i find or how would i set speed v2 + 10 kts. After inputting the data into the FMC the MCP heading, speed and altitude boxes all contain no values.Sorry guys but this is all new to me and im just learning the ropes.Regards,Chris

You need to enter the takeoff Vspeeds manually by opening the PMDG Takeoff manual. Find the current weight of your plane, and find the V-speeds in the manual and enter them in the Takeoff page of the FMC.Nick B.Continental Airlines Virtual 737NG Pilothttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg--AMD Athlon XP 3200+ @ 2.2 Ghz (Equal to 2.8 ghz)400W Power supply3x 80 mm Case FansSoyo VIA KT600 Dragon PlusnVidia GeForce FX 5200 128 mb2 x 512 PC400100 GB Western DigitalMicrosoft Sidewinder Precision 2
