Plane Doesn't Make The Final Approach Hight

Recommended Posts

I search in the documents, but i'm not sure if it is described there.

The fmc in the 737 calculate exactly the descent path from TD (say FL320 to FL2000).

My 777 never calculates it right I'm endings up way to high. I can't even correct it. I fly over the runway at 5000 feet or higher instead of catching up the glideslope at 2000 ft

Can anyone give a hint what I should do to let the FMC calculate this descent path right?

 

Thanks.

Fly the tutorial.  Your comparison to the 737 makes me think you haven't flown that yet.  The tutorial will give you the information you need to get everything working properly.

I did, but still must do something wrong. 

But you're answer seems to implicate that I'm forgetting something or do something wrong what indifferent in the777. Must be a habit after flying so many times the 737.

I follow it again.

Probably - I still catch myself acting like I'm flying the 737, only to have to scramble to get "back on track."

keep in mind the 777 does not plan for deceleration as the NG does. maybe you end up above the descent path as you reduce airspeed?
