FMC - Loading Flight Plan - what details are loaded?

Recommended Posts

Guest iain williams

Hello:A quick and hopefully easy question concerning the 737-700 FMC.When you load a flight plan into the FMC - does the flight plan include your altitude, cruise and other information - or ONLY the waypoints?? I note that the flight plans in Tim Metzler's tuitorials include all the information. Does this mean that when you save a flight plan in the fturue all the information has to be inputed before saving?? Is it possible to ONLY save/load the waypoints, then do all the other stuff at the time of the flight??Many thanks.............Iain

It took me 2 days just to figure out the correct steps to get the plane started and i still dont know if im doing it right. How good are you with these planes? If you are good i can send a video from inside the sime so that i can show you the steps i take to start the plane you can look it over and tell me if im doing anything wrong or not. Let me know

Let me knowHi Steve.Please remember to put a signature in your posting :-)I am sure that most of us, if not all, will be happy to assist you in any questions you have regarding this sim.In the meantime however, I advice you to read the tutorial by Fred Clausen. It's a more condensed tutorial than Tim's and I think you might find it quite usefull to get you started.------------------Tim Metzinger: http://www.eagleexpressva.com/pafiledb31/p...=download&id=96Fred Clausen: http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=34250------------------Regards,Sebastian

Hi Steve:Sorry I have been away. If you still need the tutorial let me know as I have the .pdf files for both Fred and Timms work.Since I posted this post I have read through Tim's tutorial and have found answers to many of my questions. I also read the FMC manual and segregated the different topics using a highlighter pen. I even wrote a few comments here and there as memory joggers. I then read parts of the actual FMC manual that came with the programme (little coloured book). I then practiced doing one aspect of the FMC until I was proficent before moving onto the next step.It's a long way to learn I know - but things seem to be working out well. There appears to be no quick way in which to learn this aircraft.Segregate the manual/tutorials, read them, practice them, do it again, then again - then move onto the next segment.With regard to starting the #### aircraft - well I'd love it if it just stayed on as time is short for me and I don't want to waste it pushing buttons on a screen!! Despite this, I started using one of the many checklists that are about, and the time to start up is only 5 minutes or so. Add another 10 to programme the FMC with a completely new, but short route.Best of luck Steve..............Iain
