  1. Hi, Do the T/C and T/D can be seen elsewhere than on the ND? My interest would be to get the estimated time of T/C and T/D that are not displayed on the ND.
  2. Hello all, I haven't posted in a long time so please excuse me if my post is in the wrong area or rather lengthy. So lets get started! I have the Blackbox Airbus Prologue at the moment, but usually only fly the A320 model. For any other Blackbox A320 users out there, is there anyway to get the Airbus to descend at a faster speed, say, 300 KTS? I have talked to various Airbus pilots about the A320 aircraft in general (descent speeds, types of descents, and descent rates) and have learned a lot about the bus, and know that it can and usually will descend anywhere from 280 up to 300+ Knots depending on weather, weight, cost index, etc. The blackbox A320's MCDU however has a set managed descent speed of 250 Knots. You can change the cost index, which will affect the cruise and climb speeds, but the descent speed is always set to 250 for me :huh: . Is there anyway to get the aircraft to descent faster? Sometimes I find myself preparing to fly a STAR with a constraint of 280 Knots, and the descent speed still set at 250. I have inputted selected mode speeds in the MCDU before descent of 280+ but it doesnt seem to change the T/D point, and still descends very poorly causing an early level off. Questions: -Can I get the A320 to descend at a faster speed and fly the vertical profile to meet all constraints? If so, how? Thanks for taking the time to read this! Blue skies & Tailwinds! :t4013: -Chris
  3. Hey so I recently got the Feelthere Embraer series Aircraft (E-170, 175, 190, 195, 135, etc.) and did the tutorial flights and a couple of other flights in them. I think they are great I just have been having a bit of difficulty with the VNAV and FMC in terms of getting the aircraft to descend at the T/D. I follow the instructions on programming the FMC and I put in all of the altitude restrictions and set the AP to VNAV. The aircraft climbs, cruises and does everything fine but when the T/D comes up it doesnt descend. It does lower the speed though at each Speed restriction. Any Ideas? I thought it might be the altitude selection in the guidance panel because I set that to the cruise altitude but I tried lowering it and it still wouldnt descend. I followed the instructions very carefully for everything. I ended up just disconnecting the FMC and just flying the aircraft manually with the AP from T/D to landing. Thanks! ~Remy

    Top of Descent Issues

    Hi, I am having a couple of issues on arriving at the TOD. I run the Descent Briefing then wait for the TOD. On arriving at the TOD I change the altitude in the MCP for the descent, then: 1) As I am reducing the altitude in the MCP (say for a descent into Newcastle, EGNT) to 2500ft. I get to around 3000ft on the adjustment and the FO says "1000 to go" then the FO makes an announcement saying "Cabin Crew prepare for landing". After we have been descending for a few minutes the FO says something about "10000" cant remember exactly what it is but FS2Crew has '10k Descent' in the procedure/checklist window. Even if I am still at FL250. 2) On actually passing 10000ft, the FO says "1000 to go". 3) Altitude callouts seem to be out of sequence for where I actually am, even though Altimeter settings are correct. Everything else checklist wise seems to work OK. I hope you can help as, although it doesn't really mess with my landings too much, it is quite annoying. Thanks in advance, Michael Barber PS. When changing the altitude at the TOD, I have also tried changing it up to 5 minutes prior to reaching TOD and also by asking the FO to adjust it. This brings about the same result.
  5. When I am reaching the top of descent point during crs altitude, I choose my approach for the destination. Then I click execute once I choose an approach, but the approach plan doesnt connect to the flight plan? It is just a blank space in between both plans. Wierd eh? Don't I need a transition point in between so it can all connect? When i go to the legs page, in between my normal flight plan and the approach plan, there is a line that says "flight plan discontinued". What do i type in so it can connect together? Can someone please explain this to me. Can someone tell me where I can find the ILS frequency's for runways I want to land? Is there a page on the internet or something? LASTLY, (sorry for so many questions), how do I know what my glideslope should be during descent? And lastly lastly, is there an ILS descent and approach checklist for this plan anywhere? Thank you guys so much:) Andrej

  7. Hi, on my latest flights I´ve been experiencing something weird. At the very beginig of the descent, just after reaching the TOD, I get a "drag required" message, even if I am going a bit slow and high on the VNAV Path. Then, fmc speed drops to 0. I disengage the A/P, handfly it a little bit, reset the F/Ds, and then, after a couple of times doing this process, i leave the A/P on, but i control myself the vnav speed, pressing the speed knob. Finally, when I reach FL200, approximately, everything goes back to normal and works as expected. I know it isn´t a pilot error, because before the SP1, I did the same things and procedures, but this didnt happen. Thanks in advance for your help!
  8. Hello, So I fly on VATSIM, love it. Usually when I am planning decent in the approach brief, I put in the final approach fix and minimums for the runway I am landing on. I do the brief before top of descent, as I should, but sometimes the winds change or I get assigned to a different runway, and I had already briefed in the air on the runway I was planning on. Is there a way to change this when descending? Hope you understand. Thanks, Brennan

    Leonardo MD 80 Question

    Hello. I'm an owner of the Leonardo MD 80. I've noticed that when I program routes into the FMS, the top of descent is placed incredibly close to my destination. This causes my descents to be in excess of 2000ft per minute. This also causes my speed to be very difficult to control. Has anyone else had this issue? How did you deal with it? Thanks, Stephen Hobson
