    Tutorial #2 Approach Questions

    Thats true Using a direct works of course, to fly the Localizer Intersect. however you have to issue the Direct quite close to RTTNB - since you have to select the Waypoint after the intersection. What I'm doing right now is exit the hold as soon as the FMC lets me - I'd say it isn't very pretty but it works.

    Tutorial #2 Approach Questions

    Sorry guys I tried to upload pictures but failed... I guess you know what I'm about anyhow. @Peter I know it is possible to remove holds and I've done it before with other holdings but in this case, with a Course rather than a Waypoint behind the hold I couldn't find a solution within the manuals. Upselecting definately does not work since I can't even select the Intersect-"Waypoint". I would highly appreciate your feedback if you manage to do the approach but until then I wish you happy holidays Kind regards

    Tutorial #2 Approach Questions

    Hi Mr. Mahesh thanks for your reply, I know I have to land manually thats not a big problem I also know how to get aligned with the LOC Course but in the procedures there is no obligatory Hold at RTTB whereas with my selected Approach at LOWI I can't get around that! Oh btw: I'm using default scenery for LOWI might this be causing trouble with the waypoints? I've just double checked entering the OEV Points manually and there is an offset to the FMC-Loc Path. I'll try to make some pictures when I'm home and if needed. Regards

    Tutorial #2 Approach Questions

    Hi there, so I'm doing Tutorial #2 provided with the 737 and in the newer NaviGraph Cycles, they seem to automatically enter a Hold at RTTB right before the 210° Intercept. I've looked into the FCOM2 about holdings and learned that you remove one by copying the subsequent Waypoint into the holding point. As the 210°InterceptLocalizer is just a Pseudo-Waypoint, is there a way to delete the hold anyway? Plus, as I haven't flown a hold before, is it possible to deactivate the hold before you actually enter it? This way I could at least work around the hold without deleting it on the Legs page. And then there is a problem with the Localizer Waypoints - After entering the Loc26 Approach I got multiple Waypoints along the Loc-Path named Loc19, Loc10 etc. Those correspond to their respective OEV Waypoint at the correct distance but since all charts use the OEV Points in the procedures it kind of bugs me. Is it normal though? I tried to enter the OEV Points manually and it works but then they are named OEV02, OEV03 etc. I guess you can't change that name right? Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading!

    Ground and sky textures - do I need them?

    For me, I'd like to think that the better the visuals, the greater the immersion. As I'll probably never experience the real thing I'd like to get immersed into the simulation as much as I possibly can. If the system impact is too big though, I'd rather not have the extra ground textures. After all, flying was fun as well back in FS98 Yannic

    VNAV Descend Problem

    Thanks to both of you for your answers. @Rick, it was around 150k, flaps came down after the DECEL point right before VOR/LOC, I don't think that was the problem. @Spin, yes I'm absolutely sure I was in VPATH as I double checked for that. I was way below the path. I did the same approach again today and maybe I should have added that I saved the flight right after T/D, on my third attempt it worked fine and even though I'm pretty sure I did everything like on the descents before I wouldn't bet money on it. Might it be that while loading the flight something messed up within the systems? Thanks again for your answers and your patience with me Yannic

    VNAV Descend Problem

    Hello everyone, I recently bought the 737 and did Tutorial1 and some practice flights beside it and everything works like a charm except for one problem I can't get my head around or find an answer in either the manuals or the Internet. Here is the situation: I'm flying into OMDB and I've reached T/D so I dial in my glideslope capture altitude as I don't fly with ATC. There is an altitude restriction of 13000B ahead and the 737 sinks just and the right rate to hit that Waypoint at excact 13000. After that however, it continues to sink way too steep and I reach the capture altitude way ahead of the planned waypoint. In the CDU Legs page it shows the correct altitude profile which it should fly but somehow it is disregarded. I'm descending in VNAV Path but it looks more like I would descend using manual V/S. Other approaches worked fine for me, the descent path always led me right onto the right altitude at the right point. Any idea? Thanks for your time Yannic
