Question about speed calculations legs page

Recommended Posts

Fist want to say what a grat product!! Very nice to fly with!


But have a question..


On my flight during the appoache there was no caculations on speed.


One fix on the app path i give speed restriction of160. A point before that one the speed stays automatically on 240, which a bit high too reduce in 4nm to 160kt.


And also the app ref speed that shows on legs page was 170kt. But on the app reference page i set 25/136.


Maybe this are real world behaviors or i did something wrong.


Note: this flight was completely setup. Evey weight and data was filled.

This is not the NGX. As mentioned in the introduction, the FMS sets 170 as default and the pilot must use SPD INTV to fly the approach. The speeds indicated on the LEGS pages are all AT OR BELOW speeds. This is the way the real machine works too.
