MD-11 Speeds on Final

Recommended Posts

Did anything change that would effect the speeds on APP or final in the update? I've only had time for one flight, but it seemed the plane didn't want to slow like it had before. I had to use the speed dial on the FCP to lower it below 245, and lowering slats and flaps didn't help. Then lowering gear and flaps to 28, I noticed the FMS speed was still too high to revert back to that mode. I hadn't done anything different than all this time with the MD. The selected APP was runway 35L at KSDF and was a straight in approach from KMEM (BNA.EWO.IIU). I found it a bit odd.

The air file was tweaked, but your problem sounds more like an Autoflight issue. If it happens again, please post some screenshots of main panel as well as the FMS APP and LEGS pages.Are you certain the FMS had sequenced all the waypoints? I presume that if the STAR/Approach waypoints are not sequenced, the FMS will not command a speed reduction even though you were approaching the runway.Paul

I'll be sure I look next time. Perhaps I forgot clear all discos, but it seemed okay on the ND and I though I paged through the legs to find any breaks.
