I had a very successful flight doing this: - taxi - arm spoilers | autobrakes RTO | press AUTOFLIGHT | FLAPS SET- LINE UP | LANDING LIGHTS ON | HI-INTENSITY LIGHTS ON | press PROF and NAV- TAKE OFF | release BRAKES | throttles to 1.10 EPR | move throttles further until you hear a CLICK | V1 | VR | V2 | above 400ft AGL press AUTOFLIGHTENJOY THE REST!Roar

That sounds similar to the tutorial description Roar... thought I don't engage PROF until airborne... It is not a good idea to engage autoflight if you are not aligned with the flight director commands, can have an interesting effect ;)CheersAndrew

Arm PROF and NAV, press AUTOFLIGHT to arm ATS on ground, engage A/P after 400 AGL by pressing AUTOFLIGHT again.

Pressing PROF on the ground arms it: it doesn't engage anything. :(

i did all this but when im airborne and press autoflight again, the plane is following the LAT navigation but the problem is with the VNAV. it just passes ,lets say the 6000 fett which is my initial climb and stalles!!like it doesnt obay the vertical navigation at all

VNAV....? VNAV...? What's that...? Oooooh, you mean PROF! :( You say the plane passes 6000 ft. Do you mean it keeps on climbing?Do you have 6000 ft dialed into the ALT window? Or already the CRZ alt? Do you have a restriction in the F-PLAN at 6000 FT? What do you see in the top right corner of the PFD: an altitude in magenta or white? Is there an altitude just above the alt tape with a little circle in front of it?Maybe you should post a screenshot: that might help!
