Mystery....

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,last night i flew PANC-CYVR in the -900.four miles out on finals for ILS/DME 26L I switch off the A/P and A/T and continue manually.For some reason my elevators fail to respond...all other controls work as normal, had to control pitch and descent with throttles only...In the VC I could see the yoke moving forward and backward relative to the movement of my joystick but no response from the aircraft elevators...In the 3 yrs i've been flying the NG this has never happened before. Did some touch and go's this morn to see if it was my joystick, but it's all good, incl null zones and sensitivity.I'm absolutely puzzled by this, can anyone shed some light on this?(PS No system failures set)

Did you capture in APP mode prior to turning off the A/P? You must not only disengage the A/P, you must also cycle the F/Ds. Or you could retune a NAV or push TOGA but choice one is what you were after.Best,Randy J. Smith
