I am not sure how to tell the FMS to reach a specific altitude at a specific Navaid.Someone may be able to tell you that.As for the alarm when Autopilot is Disconncected, you can either click the button on the yoke in VC or map a key command to the keyboard or joystick.When mapping a key command, to shut off the autopilot, you push which every that key is once. To turn off the alarm, push the same button a second time.I use "z" for my key command.After loading the aircraft, press "alt" for FS menu.Go to PMDGSelect general (If I remember correctly)Then select "key commands".In there, you find the item for autopilot disengage and assign a key command.I am stating this from memory, so just look around under the PMDG menu and you will find it.I hope that helps

1) on the right hand side of the fmc opposite the navaid, etc - enter / followed by desired altitude - i.e /8000 or enter a speed/altitude i.e 220/50002) press disconnect a 2nd time....Both these are in the manuals btw.John E
