FMC CRUISE not responding

Recommended Posts

Maybe this is a not so smart question but..where is TOD...is that the segment of a flight where the cruise alt now turns to a much lower alt and descent on the LEGS (FMC)???And Why the plane doesn't go to descent considering i filled in all proper FMC data. theplane doesn't do descent (i armed VNAV/LNAV)(based on the default flight RKSI-RJAA)and in the DES FORCAST- i can't change the TRANS ALT frm fl 180(18000ft)to FL140 (14000ft)???and in the TAKEOFF..its calc onthe FMC to use trim 5.3 while in the checklist run up the captain says it will be on 5.5 zero and zero, and what does "zero and zero" means?and inthe approach mode i entered flps and showedthe proper v speeds..but the wind correction does not come out?? in the App Brfngtheres a data like wind spd corrention sort of..with a value of '5'..is it 5 always?thank you!

Hi,Try: 140If you still get an invalid entry for the FMC, I might suggest posting on the Level-D support forum. The FMC stuff is in their court.All the best,Bryan
