Turn Type: Custom

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm trying to use the "Custom" turn type in the MCDU menu. The "short" turn time of 55 minutes is too long for my taste. I'm unable to put in a 30 minute turn time. I've tried "30", "30.0", and "30.00" in the TURN TIME field with "CUSTOM" set as the type and always get "Invalid Entry." Is there a minimum to the turn time length? If not, what's the format? I didn't see anything in the Intro manual the specifically states a format or minimum time.

 

Thanks!

Is there a minimum to the turn time length

 

Yes. I can't remember what it is, but it's relatively long. The function is meant to simulate a realistic turn of the aircraft. Having worked the ramp for a few years, personally, there's really no way you're going to turn the plane quicker than about 50-60 minutes, realistically.

 

 

 

what's the format?

 

Raw minutes:

 

50 min would be 50.

1:30 would be 90.

Ah gotcha...for future reference the minimum allowed is 60 and it will accept the value if it is 60 or greater. Thanks Kyle!
