FMC: Procedure to change next waypoint in the route

Recommended Posts

Hey, does anyone know the steps to program the FMC to change this?

Let's say route is A-B-C-D, you just crossed B so the next waypoint is C, but then you are requested to fly directly to E.

Thanks in advance.

It’s done in the legs page and is extensively covered in the manual. Far more depth than I can provide in a forum post.

I don't even have the addon, I just want to know how it's done.

Go to the legs page. A will the the top entry. B will be immediately below it.

Press the button to the left of B. The name of B will appear in the scratch pad at the bottom.

Press the button to the left of A. The name of the B waypoint formerly in the scratch pad will now be in A's spot. The light on the exec key will light (and, you'll have an Erase option if you change your mind).

Press the Exec key to affect the change. B is now your next waypoint. C,D,E, etc. will all move up one position. A will disappear.
