MD-11 FMS Question?

Recommended Posts

Is is possible to enter a flightplan and fuel entries on the ground with engines running?Ta!EDIT: Sorry - another question..... When using Flightplanners like FSCommander, should I be entering SIDSTARS on the flightplanner, or separately on the FMC?Ta again!

Certainly.. I do it often when just setting up for testing procedures.You can import sidstars with a third party flight plan, but I never do. I prefer to just build the enroute segment (I use FSBuild2) then add the departures and arrivals in the FMC. That way, I am assured that the procedures are based on the sidstars I have in my directory, not someone elses.

As I understand it this is how it works in real world as well. At least in Europe. The flightplan is entered separately from terminal departures at the flight deck.Cheers,
