Intervention. Allows you to assume manual control of Speed and Altitude while in VNAV mode. All covered in the manual.

Seriously, for all the time you spend posting here writing these messages, Susan, you could have read the manual thrice! Go find a comfortable chair and a warm blanket and curl up with an operating handbook for an evening. It is time well spent.

Hello Susan:I must say, the more I read the manuals the more filled with questions is my mind. So what I do is having piece by piece this cake. It is what I do: take off after programming a short route on the FMC, once airborne start trying what you are reading about, it helps have FS2004 on windowed mode.

Here's a tip:1. Open Adobe Acrobat Reader2. Press CTRL+F to bring up the Find window3. In the "Phrase" box, type "ALT INTV"4. Select the radio button called "All PDF documents in..."5. Open the drop down box just below that and select "Browse for Location" and select the folder containing your PMDG manuals6. Check the box "Whole Words Only"7.

This search turned up the following information:Altitude Intervention Switch: The ALT INTV button can be pressed to the following effect: During a climb or descent, pushing the ALT INTV button will delete the next waypoint altitude constraint between the airplane and the altitude displayed in the ALT window. (For example: during a step descent, pressing the altitude selection knob will delete the next level off point in the FMC flight plan, provided it is above the MCP altitude displayed in the ALT window.) If climbing, and no waypoint related altitude restrictions exist, pressing the ALT INTV button will transfer the MCP ALT value to the FMC and overwrite the FMC altitude. The aircraft will level at the MCP altitude. When pushed during cruise, the ALT window value will be transferred to the FMC flightplan and the new altitude becomes the cruise altitude. If in VNAV ALT or VNAV PTH modes, VNAV will automatically initiate the required climb or descent.
