PMDG 737 A/T Problem & ATC

Recommended Posts

Hi,1. My Auto Throttle does not arm, i've tried almost everything possible it just gives the message on the annunciator 'A/T FIRST'.This is for all models of the 737 including the NG series.I'm using the FS2004.2. When using the FS2004 ATC it almost always directs me away from the flight plan, how to correct this?tks & Merry Christmas

The way to make the built in ATC work with the PMDG is to make sure that you have the exact same flight plan loaded into the FS9 GPS and the PMDG FMC. Look for a program called PLN2RTE here on AVSIM then plan you flight with the built in flight planner, save it, and convert it to an FMC flight plan with PLN2RTE and load the converted plan into the PMDG FMC with the co route function.Much better yet is to join VATSIM and fly with real human controllers.>>tks & Merry Christmas
