Ask FO to set course in voice version?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if there is no way to get the FO to dial in a course on either side?  After all, there are commands to ask him to set altitude, heading and speeds, but I can't get him to set the course?

I've also used FS2Crew for the Dash-8 Q400, and there the commands "Set course on my/your side XXX" are available, but they don't seem to work in the 737?

 

Are there any such commands, and if so, what are they? And if not, why not?

Yes, you can use this command in NGX Reboot:

 

"Set course on my side XXX"

 

"Set course on your side XXX"

 

If not working, ensure you see it in the green bar, and ensure either the aircraft is airborne or you have the use MCP commands on ground option set to Yes.

I really don't know how on earth I managed not to get this working. Of course, I didn't find it in the list of commands in the manual. Maybe it's there, but I remember searching for it and not finding it.  Then I bought the addon for the Majestic Q400, which had these commands, and I was happy about that. And then I remember trying the same commands in the NGX, several times, but did not get them to work.  Apparently I must have done something wrong, because now that I tried it it works flawlessly every time.  (I probably missed the "on" word, or said the course before "your side" or something).

 

Anyway, thanks a lot for clarifying this. It works like a charm! :)
