Question on LNAV button

Recommended Posts

Not gonna happen - arcs like that are what's called Radius to Fix (or RTF) when it comes to flight data (what the FMS reads).  Being able to fly this via autopilot is somewhat of a recent development, as far as aircraft capability.  Several major airlines don't have this equipage in their aircraft.  The J41 does not have this either.  DME arcs were hand-flown procedures, and in most cases, still are.

 

Hello Kyle, well I did try that DEM arc approach. The J4100 followed the arc quite well, at 19 DME from the localizer, off by 0.1/0.2 nm here and there. To tell you the truth I was surprised. This little gem is really something.

All I did was hit Aprroach by the transition, and before I knew it, I was flying the arc. Again, it was not a perfect one, but still...this Jetstream may be the test bed for the NGX, but to me it is a very fun and advanced aircraft.

 

Regards
