[MD-11] ADD DRAG

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm finding I'm getting ADD DRAG messages, even though the aircraft will comfortably make an altitude/speed restriction without it. Anyone else noticing this? All it is doing is increasing the descent rate so I spend more time leveled out at a lower altitude.It doesn't occur all the time, but more often than I thought it would?Best regards,Robin.

Same here. The aircraft properly maintain an FMC speed but it shows an ADD DRAG message. Why?Matyas Majzik

Just completed a bad weather flight from EGLL to LSZH and on the descent from FL370 had Add Drag message on 4 separate occasions and had to action it twice. This normal?Konrad

Should be an update issue.Bryan Gandallhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/pmdg_trijet.jpg

I also get this occationally. What I also noticed is that there is almost no drag at all when deploying the speedbrakes.

The speed brakes work for me, and effect for me is proportional to how extended they are, and the sound volume actually varies with the amount applied.All my flights thus far using the FMC descent profile have systematically had me apply drag on descent, the descent rate computed in the default profile will almost invariably cause the aircraft to accelerate even in idle descent. I should also note that I'm a bit heavy for the descent, not quite having mastered the fuel calculations yet. Anyone with a good fuel calculator handy, please post references! :)Etienne
