MINS/FLCH

Recommended Posts

HiWould someone please help me with these functions? I can see the MINS knob, but it doesn't seem to be functioning. What is its purpose?Also, I can't find anything pertaining to the FLCH. Where is it located, how do I manipulate it and what is its function?Seems I need these functioning correctly for a landing that doesn't scare the daylights out of the Pax... Been through the manuals for the better part of two hours, and can't find what I need.Thanks!Chip B.

FLCH (flight level change)is not a control/button but an annunication at the top left of the PFD to show that this pitch mode has been selected (See 9-4 of Automatic Flight Management Systems).Pressing LVL CHG on the MCP will activate this mode - where pitch, roll and thrust will be used to acquire the selected altitude at the selected speed.Watch out - I have noticed that the two acronyms are erroneously quoted (inadvertently) in the forum / some documentation which may have lead to your confusion!
