Flap settings on PFD tape during approach

Recommended Posts

Before approach (in FS9), I select the APPROACH REF page and select the flaps/speed for landing, and it inserts the REF in green on the speed tape. Then as I descend toward the approach point, I see UP in green and then the flaps sequentially are annunciated on the PFD tape as I select the next flap setting. After selecting flaps 20, however, there are no more flap annunciations on the tape during approach, there's just REF. Am I missing the little green annunciation for flaps 25 and/or 30? Jonathan

Dear Jonathan,All the indications you are seeing are correct, you are not missing anything. Those are flaps maneuvering speeds for flaps retraction/extension for current flap setting and next lesser flap setting. Next marking is REF based on flaps 25 x 30 selected by pilot from CDU for landing. You need to read flight instruments, displays, controls and flight management chapter.
