A/P not working after first flight.

Recommended Posts

ive bought pmdg boeing 737-900 and truly is a masterpiece. However after making my first flight (all good), parking,throttles off, etc i want to make another flight from my destination,everything works right until i takeoff and try to place the A/P again the buttons will not illuminate and starts descending brutally making it impossible to fly again.Any ideas?

I am not familiar with that aircraft but is there a chance you failed to turn the Avionics switch on?

Or after you disengage the a/p, apparently you can only use the autopilot in a one-way flight.

Omnipotence:regardless of your screen name there is no way you can fly a PMDG 737NG or 747-400 without reading the manuals. you can have a basic understanding of what to do if you have 'yoke time' in a real boeing or other detailed boeing FS simulation (ie, FT 737classic, levelD/PIC 767, and/or DF 737-400).PMDGs big and biggest 'iron' are all about the details. you must understand how the systems work and inter-react or you will not get the engines started, takeoff or keep the plane in the air.brew a good pot of coffee and read the manual - twice. be prepared to hit the pause button and review the manual a few or more times during your first flights.--edit: typo--

I'm taking a stab in the dark here, but check your autopilot disconnect switch to see if it's in the down position. I think it needs to be reset to use the autopilot again.Curt
