FMC B747/B737 Overflying a waypoint exactly?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to program FMC that the aircraft is overflying a waypoint (VOR/intersection) exactly and not turning before to the next waypoint?This procedure is asked strictly during examination sessions online.Thanks, Peer

Hi Peer:That is the difference between Fly-by and Fly-over waypoints.The only way I have found to do it and that works with some acuracy is creating a custom waypoint with some separation from the fix that you want to overfly.The distance depends of the sharpness of the turn and of try-error repetitions.An example:I want to fly to STG vor heading 360
