Procedure Question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was enjoying the Queen today and messed up my decent. I had to abort the approach and entered the hold as published.

Now, and forgive me if this isn't the place for this question, how do I restart the approach?

I can't seem to figure it out. I can put in fixes but can't seem to see how to restart the approach. The approach name and runway are still selected under the Dept/Arrv screen.

P.S. I don't feel like reading the manual :dry: and would hope tapping into the knowledge of the members here won't be too offensive.

Thanks.

Hi,

Such a sentence usually does not work out very well to get some 'nice' and helpful answers from other forum members who fly this study level airliner...

You could try to deselect it and select it again. Works for me.

Either reselect the arrival runway and approach as Peter suggested, or vectors to final. I highly recommend you read the manual if you want to do it correctly. 

Remember, you can always revert to manual flying or the use of heading select, not everything needs to be done through the FMC.

Thank you both for your replies.

I feel chastened and a bit embarrassed after reading my post in the clear light of day.

I was a bit excited and very tired. I'll do my homework henceforth.

About the hand-flying. Yes. I would have normally, but the weather was low IFR. 

Anyway, thanks again for taking your time in answering.
