Missing things in the FMS / CDU? I'm doing wrong?

Recommended Posts

I got a Ryanair FCOM2 and I'm looking a bit into it.


It says what to write, to put a waypoint on the route!


But I can not insert a waypoint in the LEGS page! (Along the route)


Examples. "GG711 / 5" The ESGG STAR to 03


It should end up 5 NM along the route ahead of GG711


Manually Entered Along–Track Waypoint Names

Along–track waypoints are a special case of place–bearing/distance waypoints applied to the current route. When a waypoint is desired on the route where none exists, the along–track waypoint feature creates the desired waypoint without creating a route discontinuity.

Along–track waypoints are entered using the waypoint name (the place), followed by a slash and minus sign, for points before the waypoint, or no sign for points after the waypoint, followed by the mileage offset for the newly defined waypoint. The route course takes the place of the bearing which is not entered. The created waypoint is then inserted over the original waypoint. The distance offset must be less than the distance between the originating waypoint and next (positive value) or preceding (negative value) waypoint. Latitude and longitude waypoints cannot be used to create along–track waypoints. Examples:

• VAMPS/25 is 25 miles after VAMPS on the present route, and is displayed as VAM01

• ELN/–30 is 30 miles before ELN on the present route,and is displayed as ELN01.

You must downselect GG711 in the LEGS page and then type '/5' next to it.


IIRC it doesn't work by simply typing 'GG711/5...
