Top of Decent

Recommended Posts

Hi,Love the PMDG product line, I am licking my lips thinking about the new prodcuts that you guys will be comming out with soon, Its amazing to think that your new products can get any better than the 747-400, but I am sure that they will. But compliments asside, I have one problem with the 737NG (600/700) that does not occure with the 800/900. The Top of Decent point that the FMC calculates is normally 400 miles from the destination. This seems to me to be far to early to start any decent. Is this realistic, or is there a problem??ThanksSheahan

I almost exclusively fly the -700, but I've never seen your indication.. that would be a very shallow descent and a waste of fuel. Do you have constraints enroute, is it happening all the time? The 800/900 upgrade also upgraded the FMC for the 600/700, I assume you have the upgrade.

I have all four PMDG 737NGs and have flown all of them and I've never had that problem either.
