Route deletes when ‘execute’ is pressed FMC.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have recently tried to do a cold and dark start on the 777-300ER and when I got to setting up the route in the FMC I faced a problem. I set up the route (EHAM - EGLL) and added BAW452 as the flight number and ‘24’ as the runway.  I added all the way points and then I clicked ‘save’. I saved with the name ‘EHAMEGLL’. Next I clicked ‘activate’ and everything was fine. Then when I clicked ‘execute’ it took me to the next step but removed the ICAO codes from where they were meant to be. The flight number and Co number were still there. It also removed the route from the nav display. It looked like the following:

 

From                                         To

————                                   ————

 

                                           Flight number

                                           BAW452

    

                                            Co number 

                                            EHAMEGLL

 

 

the from and to box had become empty. Also all the waypoints got erased. Please help as I searched everywhere!

Try EXEC when your route is complete, then SAVE.  I also always RTE COPY before I save to load it into RTE 2 but that is optional.

Ok I’ll try that, but what do you mean by when your route is complete? End of the flight or?

When you have completed the entry of the route.  When the route is in the FMS click EXEC.  Now you have an active route to save or copy.  The route is not active until you EXEC.

I just did that and it worked! Can't thank you enough, now I can do those long haul flights!
