Pilot response warning in auto cruise.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I get pilot response warnings about every 10 minutes during auto flight. Check ing the handbook it's because there's been no pilot action for a set period of time. Should this not be disabled in auto cruise?

If you want it disabled, there's an option in the PMDG Setup > Aircraft Options menus to turn it off.

 

 

 


Would be nice to have this inhibited.

 

As in during auto cruise?  Just turn the function off in the menus.  Honestly, I see the two features as wholly contradictory.

 

"I don't want to be here during cruise, and I don't want the cruise to be very long; I really want that feature that bugs you for not interacting with the airplane, though!"

Just click on the COMM button and it will extinguish the message.

For the remainder of the flight?

Yes Kyle, I want to have my cake and eat it too. :P You have a point there. It's a cool feature on shorter hauls, but a bit annoying on long hauls. To me, it would make sense for it to auto inhibit (and I really can't imagine it would be that difficult to program), but it's not a big deal to turn it off entirely.

...and there's the fatal error.

 

Never assume simplicity in programming.

 

Honestly, if you're going to be using compression, just turn it off.

Would this be the Crew Alertness Monitor?

Hi Peebee,

 

From the issue tracking thread:

 

- Enabling Auto Time Compression will now suppress the crew alertness monitor.
