NGX & VOR Identifiers

Recommended Posts

Hi captains,

 

I'm wondering if there are a way to know the frequency of a VOR displayed on the ND when you switch on the STA (station) button on the EFIS. In the 747 is possible to get this info by simply ente ring the VOR name in the CDU nav page. But 737...

 

Thanks in advance.

Only way I can think off the top of my head is to check the NAV STATUS page. Closest VOR information would be shown. You can get to the NAV STATUS page from the PROG menu on the FMC.

Yes, I know this. But I'm refering to those VOR stations shown on ND when EFIS "STA" switch is ON, but they are not in our route. Thanks for answer anyway

Do it like every other pilot does it...MAPS (or memory)!

I swear, I'll show a map to someone 5 years from now and they'll look at me like I'm from space.

I think you can always enter the "name" of the VOR into the CDU and it'll identify and show you the nearest station with that name.

But yeah, as Kyle said, maps are (at least for me) the best way to do that.


 

With kind regards, Bogdan Misko.

You mean via FIX page?
