MD11 - Flight Timer

Recommended Posts

I noticed that the MD11 flight timer, starts itself as aircraft takeoff. Also it stops itself at landing time, and it doesn't keep the flight time but it returns to 00:00. This is an issue because in the real life the MD11 timer keeps the latest flight time until reset or new takeoff.Any solutions about it?RobBlueSky Virtual

Rob, As it is modeled now, after landing the total flight time will remain displayed until the FMS transitions to the DONE phase, which happens when the MCDU INIT key is pressed or when engines are shut down. This was modeled by reference to an older manual, which either got it wrong (yes this can happen) or this functionality has changed since then. You are right, the correct behavior is that the elapsed flight time should remain displayed as long as electrical power is available, and reset to 00:00 when V2 is computed for the next flight. We will fix that in the next update.
