Hi.The VIA section is used if you know the Airway number.The FMC can be programmed to navigate along a paticular Airway beyween two points on it.A place to find Airway numbers is at htt://rfinder.asalink.netThis site will plan a route for you between the two cities you wish to fly between and give you the airway numbers,(and it's free).When you programm the FMC the Airway number goes into the VIA section and the Waypoint into the TO section.Hope that has made it a little clearer.Contact me again if you need anymore help.Tony

Also,If you have the route numbers and the PMDG FMC states 'invalid entry', your NAVDATA may be out of date, or different from that in which you pulled the route plan. (This happened to me). I updated my NAVDATA in FSBuild and in PMDG FMC and now all the 'VIA' entries (airways) I have used work.Dennis

VIA = AirwaysFor example the flightplan from egll to ksfo:EGLL SID BUZAD UT420 WELIN UN57 POL UN601 TLA UL613 FINDO UM87 BAMRA UN584 SUM UM125 SIDER G11 MY G3 KEF 5E72 YFB N554C YYQ NCAE YYN J530 GTF J7 FMG STAR KSFO.Read it likeAfter the SID fly to BUZAD. After BUZAD fly to WELIN via UT420 (the airway). From WELIN to POL via UN57...When programming the FMC enter the Airways in the VIA field. On the LEGS page you'll find all the waypoints on this airway (FMC programs them automatically).For exampleRTEWELIN UN57 POLLEGSWELINTIMPOTNTPOL@lex

Where did you set the new altitude? FMC or on the MCP (autopilot)? - To descend, set the new altitude on the MCP. If flying in VNAV mode you need to press the button (the one you rotated) to tell the FMC that that is the new altitude. You could also use FLCH to descend by engaging that mode, and it will descend maintaining the speed you have selected in the speed window. Alternatively you could also descend in V/S, by selecting the rate of descent you what to maintain, however the aircraft will not alter pitch to hold speed, so you either over or under speed in this mode.Sorry if it seems confusing, but I hope this helps you out :)
