Hi to all!
I am quite a passive user on this forum because so many questions are asked, so most of the time, I don't need to ask mine.
Well today, I am asking something quite specific.
I was quite puzzled about the quick way to enter route in the FMC (only inputing the airways, and the intersection would be found automatically). Living in Dubai, I had the chance recently to go for a session on iPilot simulator, and I tried this function on the FMC, and it worked. Quite sure that it was a real function of the aircraft, I discussed this topic with a real 737 pilot (at Fly Dubai), and took a bet on this function he didn't know. But 2 days later, he sent me a videowhere he tried to use this trick, but it didn't work.
My question therefore is:
- is it a trick implemented by PMDG (and prosim in case of ipilot simulator)?
- is this function available only on some versions of the aircraft?
I lost my bet and owe him a beer now...
Many thanks for your kind answers, and have safe (or real) virtual flights!
