Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Transponder vpilot going standby when takeoff CRJ

Recommended Posts

I dont know why this is happening. Just before takeoff I switch the ATC SEL from STBY to 1 and vpilot reacts with mode C. However, when I look at vpilot just after takeoff it has become standby so I have to push Mode C on vpilot to make it active. This does not happen to any other aircraft I have. Does anybody know the reason?

I just tested this. The transponder remained in mode C after takeoff. However, I used the CRJ SP1 beta and made a fix to the transponder a few weeks ago. That probably has fixed the issue.

OK, thank you for answering. Is the SP1 beta public available or do I have to wait? I noticed that it changes from mode C to standby at the moment of TOGA on the throttle.

Well, I suddenly discovered that my VA`s ACARS-software has an option for automaticly changing the transponder-setting during takoff. This option was enabled as default. I guess that is the reason so I just turned it off now and will check on my next flight. Sorry for blaming the CRJ if the ACARS software was causing my trouble.
