Somthing I didn't know about the FMC....

Recommended Posts

that we find on the Hawker and those planes that use it, such as Giorgio's 737. If you want to load the flight plan once you are in flight without having to click "start flight plan" in the flight planning menu, I believe you can do it by following these steps:1. Enter the Fligh Plan screen 2. enter your departure airport and select it.3. enter your arrival airport and select it.4. Now the map should show both departure and destination airports.5. you can "genereta a route"6. you should now have your route displayed on the map7. Instead of clicking "start flight plan", simply exit by clicking on the cross located in the upper right corner of the screen. 8. When you get back to the aircraft, you will find the flight plan has been loaded on the FMC. This approach enables you to use all the flight planning resources without having to literally "reset" the flight.Essentially, it's point number 7 that you need to remember.I don't know if this technique is known in the FLY world, so I thought I would share it with you.tony

And the result of testing is.... Yeeeeeeesssssss !:-jumpy Starting for LFMN with the Hawker, no flight plan. While taxiing, I open the flight planner, I choose a departure from LFMN (Nice), destination LFMD (Cannes), with a waypoint, the NDB "NC" (Antibes).Exit from the flight planner, a glance to the FMS : my waypoint and my destination are there, HSI is on, so let's take off (04R)A long right turn, then a vertical above terrain (the controllers are busy to drink some Champagne for Ren
