Digital Piper Cheyanne GPS Flight Plan

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all who tried to help but it was "Chris - KPHX" who had the correct answer as I can not make it fly the GPS Flight Plan. I've added a short version of Christ's instruction along with a screen shot of how to make the "set-up". jerrycwo4

CORRECTION.... "as I can not make it fly the GPS Flight Plan" should have read, I can NOW, repeat, NOW ("now", not "not" )make the GPS flight plan work !!!!! jerrycwo4PS: I guess that I forgot to include that the Auto Pilot HAD to be on, but I would have included that "step", had I remembered. Yes of course, the "Auto Pilot" has to be engauged. Thanks for remindering me. As for the "Yaw Dampning" "YD" dont have a clue about it. I have been flying Flight Sims for 10 years and have NEVER used that switch in any aircraft ???????

I'm glad my explanation helped! It's a great plane once you get used to the procedures and all.BTW, the YD is something used in most turboprops just after take-off and turned off slightly before landing. The jets tend to leave them on all the time. The function in the sim is not a realistic representation of the real thing, but a very simple version of it. A lot of payware aircraft require the YD be on when operating the AP, so it's good to get in the habit of using it the way they do in the real world. It won't hurt to use it, so no sense not using it. In the real world it helps prevent dutch roll and limit the deviation of excess rudder movements.
