What is next after RESET MCP ALTITUDE

Recommended Posts

I am about to learn the PMDG-777 and so far so good.

Except I am not sure what to do after I get the message RESET MCP ALTITUDE.

I lower the altitude according to the charts and then what ? What do I have to do in order to

get the descent ?

I appreciate your help.

Nothing if you are in VNAV PTH.  The aircraft upon reaching T/D will begin it's descent.  If you are in any other mode you will have to do something.  Depending on the mode and what you want to happen will alter what you need todo.

I cannot stress enough how important it is that you fly the Tutorial. Many things are explained.  Even if you are type rated in the aircraft, the Tutorial is helpful in helping you learn how to interact with the PMDG product.
