FMS problems

Recommended Posts

I have been having continual problems with the 777 FMS (and 737 also). The FMS cannot seem to command the auto-pilot to properly conduct the descent while on STARs. Yesterday going in to LAX, when the TOD was met, the aircraft only started (and maintained) a 500 fpm descent. The proper rate of descent to abide correctly by the STAR restrictions would have been 1800-2000 fpm. Of course, it is possible to manually enter the descent rate, but it should not be necessary. The Level D 767 has almost the identical FMS and it handles the STAR configurations properly. Is there some other input I need to make to allow the FMS to work properly?

Did you pull your hardware throttles back to idle?
