MD-11 Hi-intensity lights must stay on?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I read that scripts and flows can be edited in MCE but I'm not 100% sure what file or files to do it to or how.

 

I mainly just want the FO to not shutoff the Hi-intensity lights on his after takeoff flow because I don't believe that to be a SOP in the MD-11. Since those lights are it's strobe lights and those lights must be on all times when in the air is my understanding correct?

Hello George.

 

The edit is straightforward.

 

With the sim running and the MCE GUI open. Select the VoxScript command button. Select the "after take off flow" and open "edit". You will see all the after take off commands. Just select the "strobe lights off" or "high intensity lights off" (can't recall which one was in there) command and hit remove/delete. Then hit "save", don't forget to save your new after take off flow.

 

That's the beauty of MCE. With this VoxScript editor actually a part of the Graphic User Interface, we can add, alter or amend any flows we wish.

 

BTW, I believe the strobes stay on at night/low visibility, or can be switched off, together with the landing lights after ten thousand. Can't recall the exact FCOM now.

 

 

Hope that helps.

Regards

David
