Flight 1 ATR FMC Question

Recommended Posts

I finally was able to get the FMC in the Flight 1 ATR to actualy track the flight plan.  One other question is as I import a flight plan, the first waypoint is the airpoint runway. So when I activate the flight plan via the FMC, after departing from the runway when control is transfered to the FMC, it starts to track back to the runway coordinates.  How do I deal with this issue?  Do I need to remove the runway from the RTE?  Or do I activate the flight plan prior to taxi and taking off via the runway.  Is this an issue with importing the flight plan?   I have seen tutorials via YouTube and the examples in the video indicate that the runway is specified, but it appears that it not part of the first leg.

 

Just needing some refresher training here.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

The first waypoint should be the first waypoint of the DP you're using, not the runway itself as you mentioned. You answered your own question in your post as a runway is not a waypoint.
