Letting the FO do the flying

Recommended Posts

HiA single question for this very nice add-on: If the FO is flying (after the A-button has been pressed) during cruise, will the CA's intervention still be required if there is a message from the FA?If you hand the flying over to the autopilot and the FO for a little while, it would be nice if you could leave the computer with a peacefull mind for a couple of minutes.regards Ole

Hello Ole,In cruise, when you hand control over to the FO by hitting the "A" button on the CPAL icon, all that will happen is that the FO will engage Autopilot B.That's all he'll do. The FO doesn't answer FA calls.You can leave the computer with the FO flying the plane so long as you're in cruise and not close to the TOD. The FO obviously cannot reply to any ATC calls.When the FA calls you, she won't say anything till you hit the Blue Call lights, so if you have to step away from your computer you won't miss anything.Cheers,Bryan
