Tutorial problem

Recommended Posts

I down loading the 737 NGX, FMC totorial ( Aussie Star) from PMDG.  On PDF page 6 it says select JCT7 on the next computor page.   When I select JCT7, nothing happens, not anything on that page clicks.  Any help please ?

I don't see anything like you are describing on page 6 of the PMDG Tutorial 1. What tutorial are you writing about?

PMDG 737NGX Introduction and Tutorials   PMDG 737NGX Documentation (PDF)

 

 

None of those PDF files refer to "JCT7" at any point. Additionally, the files you linked to are older. Use the ones that came with the aircraft, which are current.

 

Full names - first and last - in each post, please.

 

 

 

EDIT: It appears that you're using a third-party tutorial made by someone who goes by the name of Aussie Star. While these are occasionally helpful, the tutorials that came with the aircraft will likely be more helpful, initially. From there, branch out and look at other tutorials such as the one you've downloaded. The reason you're not seeing the JCT7 SID is that it is now the JCT8.

OK Kyle, thanks.    I get a simular problem with Tutorial #1.  PDF page 26 says Press LSK 2R to select Runway 08R...nothing happens, or on any LSK.

Instead of looking to hit a particular key, be sure to look for which line has the runway on it. It's the concepts that you need to pull out of it, and not exactly what buttons to hit, when.

I believe the runway is 09R now. It was 08R when the tutorial was written. If you are seeing nothing on the right hand side of the page, you are on the wrong page. You had better start over again. Read it carefully. Do not rush thru it.

 

Edit. 08R is still 08R. My mistake. I thought the flight started from EGLL.

Did you get runway 08R selected? If you did, next you need to select the appropriate SID then LSK R5 Route>and proceed with entering the route to EHAM.

When you had  selected  8R   from the right  hand  side  did  you get  <sel> option  to the left  of  8R  when you selected 8r,   since  if  you did   and  keep pressing  8R  nothing  will happen  till you have  selected a  sid from the left hand  side

 

Here  is  a  utube  of  the  tutorial egkk to eham

Thanks Pete, I see where I went wrong, I think. :fool:   That's the kind of totorial PMDG should make available.  The guy that did that totorial was very savvy.  To read & go through the material while recording was amazing.   Thanks all for your help.
