PSS Support,Recently I received the following atz from ATC:"PTMQZ, fly heading 350 to intercept 020 radial of Palegre VOR, report established"Well, in another aircraft, I'd just select HDG 350, set course to 020 and click "NAV".In Airbus, I had to do it in the hard way; flown heading 350, selected RAD NAV, entered VOR Freq, the CRS, changed to the VOR ROSE in ND, and when the CDI got close, MANUALLY I flown the rdl 020...How do I set the Airbus to intercept and fly it by itself?Thank You,Rodrigo A B Freire.

Flying inbound radials with the PSS Airbus is not possible and in fact nor is it possible with the real world version either. One way is to enter a PBX fix so that you intersect airways or it can be done with a PBD fix but it does require some manual intervention then. In this the PSS MCDU is not quite as advanced as the real world version but it does just about work.

Further to my post above, I believe the new version of the MCDU which is being rolled out on Airbuses does allow flying inbound radials. Not that that will help us of course.
