Go-around, changing the route - not much works

Recommended Posts

Guest vrapp

Hello,In A340, I was trying go-around and alternate route. Found not much working. Would appreciate some guidance.The manual says that alternate route can be initiated at any time. In reality, let's say I have a route KMDW/KCWA. with KMKE as the alternate destination at the INIT page. Then in the flight plan I see the following:.....KCWA08----- END OF F-PLNKCWA----- F-PLN DISCONTINUITYKMKE----- END OF ALTN F-PLNThen if during the flight I enter a waypoint, click ENABLE ALTN and select KMKE, the result is NOT ALLOWED. Same if I try to select KMKE as DIR TO.As I understand, that's because of the discontinuity. So, how to get the alternate airport out of discontinuity?After go-around, the flight plan in FCMU disappears. I was able to enter a VOR in DIR-TO, but not an airport, with or without the runway - the result was "NOT IN DATABASE". Is there a way to fly direct to airport, or enter an airport into flight plan? Finally, attempts to enter information into the inserted VOR (I tried entering next waypoint) consistently locked FS.I wonder, have anybody tried flying alternate destination or go-around? is there some right way to do that? I think it would be very helpful if PSS published a walkthrough for go-around with flying to the same or another airport.

Hi there,I haven't checked for that particular issue, but if indoubt about Airbus procedures:www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlIt's a treasure trove.
