Bug Up Delay - SOP 3

Recommended Posts

Hi Bryan,

 

I've been away from my computer today but I remembered something that I noticed yesterday with SOP 3 when using this brilliant add-on (Which I honestly really appreciate your help and understanding).

 

When I have asked the PM for the 'Bug-up' speed, there seems to be a significant delay in him doing so, and it appearing on the PFD speed tape, not sure if others have noticed this delay as I will call for 'Bug Up' when passing 1000 ft AAL. I believe that is the correct point to do it in SOP 3?

 

Would there be any chance of shortening the delay at all?

 

Many thanks, please accept my apologies for lots of my posts at the moment, trying to get used to the add-on :)

Hi, 

 

Just a small info:

At 1000 feet AAL or 3000 AAL depending on your NADP, speak: “BUG UP”. Remember, if the autopilot is on, you manually set the bug up speed, not the FO, but you should still announce what you’re doing.

 

It depends on your acceleration height: NADP1: 3000ft AAL (Above Airport Level)/ NADP2: 1000ft AAL

Hi Romain, thank you for this. I was fully aware of this :) I think NADP2 is the most common found.

 

But still, even at 1000 ft AAL, when I call 'Bug Up', the PM does respond but there is a delay in him actually setting the Bug Up speed.

Sorry, I misread your post, I understood that you weren't entirely sure.  :wink:

I don't know to be honest. I found that the PROC A is quite common as well (reduction height 1500ft / acceleration 3000ft).

And not speaking of the airlines specific noise abatement procedures that are used whenever  a particular procedure is not specified in the airport AIP.

FO actions are threaded, so your command may be held in sequence.

 

In other words, the FO may have been doing something else at the time, like a flow.  He can't do two things at once.
