Step Climb Question

Recommended Posts

When I set a step climb in the FMC by typing /410S for example, it accepts the value but all following waypoints remain at the original altitude (fl390). This doesn't feel right. Can anyone help?

Do not include the "/" when entering 410S.... and be sure this is not above the maximum altitude as shown on the VNAV pg 2/3.

99.9% /FL410S is above MAX alt!

 

Typically operators plan for, and crews operate at 500-1000' margin to MAX alt.
