Jay, that's a big question you've asked. Your best bet would be to read through the documentation that comes with the Airbus, and try it out on your own. The tutorial flight will walk you through setting up a flight plan in the FMC, and configuring the autopilot to fly it. Once you've done that, you can try to set up your own flightplan between airports of your choice. If, after you've gone over the documentation and tried the tutorial flight, you still have problems, go ahead and post more specific questions about the FMC operation. PSS also has their own forum here on AVSIM that would probably be the more appropriate place to post.Good luck,Greghttp://www3.sympatico.ca/gregory.moffatt/sig1.jpg

jay,that's indeed a very very big question.Remember the FMC is not a stand-alone instrument,it takes care of the whole automation in your plane.You'll use it in combination with the FCU.I hope you have an advanced knowledge of airliner flying,because it's not the same as a car :)
