Entering Gate Numbers in the FMC

Recommended Posts

Did anyone take a look at the new AIRAC? You can now enter the gate number in the POS INIT page! Now if only the coordinates and the GPS showed the same numbers:P Maybe it just depends on the airport and AFCAD accuracy but still, what a great new feature!Nice addition Richard!Ryan GamurotLucky to live Hawai'ihttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa296.png

"Maybe it just depends on the airport and AFCAD accuracy but still, what a great new feature!"There are, occasionally, small real world differences between gate lat/longs in nav databases and GPS readouts. I can't recall, however, what position the pilots are instructed to use, if there is a discrepancy between lat/long signs stuck to terminal buildings, current GPS position, charts and FMC gate databases.Decisions, decisions... :(Cheers.Q>
