ALT HOLD Switch Light ?

Recommended Posts

FCOM VOL 2 Page 193 it says.......... When in ALT HOLD at selected MCP altitude:• selecting a new MCP altitude illuminates the ALT HLD switch light and arms V/S mode. Any time I select a higher or lower altitude the light does not come on but it does arm V/S. Can anyone else verify this ?? I have Hotfix 3 installed. Fred. ( just did another test flight now with the Honeywell MCP and no problems) The problem only seems to be with the Collins MCP.

From memory I do recall the V/S arm come on the FMA, I don't recall what the MCP button lights are doing.

Yes I believe it is suppose to do that. I have no hotfixes installed and it does not perform like the manual says. In fact in VNAV when climbing once I level off, the select a higher altitude nothing arms at all and the autopilot remains in VNAV. I end up selecting Alt Intervention, This is not what you are suppose to do unless you have an at or below altitude restriction. This is a bug that I hope will be fixed soon (SP1). VR Todd

Another thing I have noticed is that the ALT Hold light will come on approoaching the selected altitude.Not quite sure about that though.

Did you send a support ticket about this? Otherwise it won't get fixed at all.
