Problems with Setting Up AutoPilot and Accellerating

Recommended Posts

I am having trouble accelerating past 200 knots after take off and for the autopilot to climb to the altitude I have set. I don't know what I am missing here. Autopilot is engaged, LNAV and VNAV are pressed. See screen below, this was taken on a short flight to test things out. I am probably doing something very dumb that is causing this.

Hi, i dont see a picture but its normal for ap to keep speed to v2+20 i think - until you reach acceleration height. This is usually set to 1500ft, acceleration should start after here. Maybe check in your fmc what this value is set to.
