Letting the FO do the flying

Recommended Posts

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
