MD11 "Step Climbs" reloaded

Recommended Posts

Guest Susan27

Hi,after some flying with the brilliant MD11 I would like to "use" the step climb feature of the FMS. Therefore I read Harrys advices (thanks!) in the other thread entering diffenerent SC FL 330, 350, 370...and setting FL 370 in the FSP box.My question now: After taking off & engaging Auto Flight & Prof mode brings me direct to the first FL (330 in the example above), correct? If so what do I have to do that the FMS performs the next SC and climbs to the next FL (350)...?Thanks very much! :)KR

Select the next altitude on the glareshield before the S/C waypoint is sequenced. As long as you have the correct altitude selected for the step climb, and are in PROF, the jet will start the step climb when the S/C waypoint is sequenced.-Shaun
