FMS still skips waypoints

Recommended Posts

Guest NormanB

These waypoints it was skipping - how had they got into the MCDU? Were they manually input or was it from an imported plan?

there were put in manually by me, typing them in with airways. for ex. VOR1 - J123/VOR2, and the waypoints were being skipped. i didnt import any FP or anything.

I did my longest flight yesterday in PSS A320 from CYYZ to KMIA and after about 4 waypoints the FMS was doing fine then started skipping the next waypoint and jumping to the third throwing me off course. i started the flight with the default cessna at KSEA and then switched to PSS A320. whats the reason for this and how to correct this issue?

WOAH my fms, i could never get the time to work nor the EFOB. and it never showed the T/D in the FP page. maybe i need to read the docs again or can you tell me what exactly you did.

Darian,If you had no EFOB or TOD then you failed to enter in all of the required details in the MCDU. Block, ZFW and V speeds are the usual culprits.
