737 OFFSET PROBLEM

Recommended Posts

Guest fencer88

Hi everyone,I can't make OFFSET work properly on my 737NG. I think I follow the instructions properly (first setting LATERAL OFFSET distance, then START WAYPOINT and END WAYPOINT then EXECing (?) the whole thing.On the ND, the OFFSET track is displayed in three segments : first segment (branching off from the flightplan track) is a plain line, but the offset segment parallelling the flightplan track remains a dotted line and when the plane reaches this second segment, it will not turn and it just continues freely on the "branch off" heading. The last segment (returning to the main track) is also a plain line but unfortunately I never get there. If I go back to LEGS, select the END WAYPOINT and re-enters it in LSK 1L, my OFFSET is cancelled (which makes sense). I checked in the forum posts and found other occurences of the problem but no resolution. Am I doing something wrong? Any ideas?Thanks very much in advance.Bruno DUPRE
