737NG Lower EICAS

Recommended Posts

Greetings Everyone, After much absence from the FS world and this forum i am happy to say that my PC is in the repair shop and i should be getting it back soon all for the NGX :). Really excited about this one, i already have my first few flights planned (after training of course) Tounge.gif I'm curious about something though. Considering that the lower eicas of the NG only has the ENG and STAT synoptics, how are the flight controls tested to ensure that the surfaces move in co-ordination to the movement of the yoke/rudder pedals? Also, how do they flight crew know what temperatures the landing gears are at? Thank you in advance

There is an airline-selectable option, that enables the flight crew to observe the flight controls on the lower DU. Not all airlines have that, some I'm pretty sure the crews just do a "free & clear" check of the flight controls.

The lower EICAS displays the brake temps along with the control surface positions. Simply press the STAT button and presto!Cheers,

It is in fact an option though that airlines can choose - option is selectable in the FMC along with all the others.
