Throttle Hold

Recommended Posts

I saw on my 757 that the THR HOLD function doesn't work: when I am in descent with FL CH engaged, throttles move themselves to IDLE position and I'm unable to move them (altough there is THR HLD on the annunciator). Is it right? I think I should be able to move them...now the bird descends with very high descent rates (-5000-6000 ftm). I didn't try the RTO during the take-off. I've a Saitek X-52. Is it my fault? Or is it normal?thank youRiccardo Malpica

Hi Riccardo,No this is not normal as during a FL CH descent on Boeing aircraft you should be able to control the rate of descent by means of the throttles. Kind Regards,Bjorn
