Flight Plans not working?

Recommended Posts

Create FP from simbrief load it correctly in co. routes. Check "Plan" all looks good no discontinuities. Fly plan speed sim to 4x arrive well before TOD and all is fine except aircraft doesn't begin decent (altitude button pushed)and no Co-pilot comes on for the checklist. Get closer to airport and aircraft looses navigation direction and goes off course. All weather data also entered prior to TOD. Leads me to think something is broken here.

Could very well be the 4x. as we do a lot of things at frame by frame rate it's a very tricky thing.

I flew the route at normal speed and the same thing happened. Does the navigation line that the Airbus follows have to go through the exact waypoint because on a leg where problem occurs the line does not go through the waypoint (waypoint is in the flightplan) but to the side of of the waypoint which is located on a turn prior to approach to runway.

It seems the autopilot dose whatever it wants when I get closer to the decent path. Frustrating to say the least.

Just an idea install the NavData (Airac) new.

In another post an user had some problems with the right course to a runway and after Airac new installation the problem was solved.

Maybe you have a similar cause with waypoints.

The aircraft will not overfly waypoints if there is a turn involved. 

 

Just to be 100% sure, you are in the correct mode right?

Very weird I believe I am in the right mode following what I read and Youtube flights. I check the flight plan prior to take off downloaded from simbrief plan in correct cycle. I view in PLAN MODE and looks as direct as I can get it to the arrival airport. I take off nicely gain altitude and suddenly I see added waypoints going in a circle that were not there before and yes the flight was Inserted and live before take off.Flight Plan KATL 09L - KROA 34

I was more thinking about FMGS modes.... I suggest reading the step-by-step manual, pretty sure you will understand things better then.

Following directions like other airplanes. Read all the comments on  the autopilot with this airplane. All of a sudden for no apparent reason the Autopilot goes off (as in on /off switch)as I am descending from a perfect flight and won't come back on until the plane has completely lost it's navigation line of travel. It's happened twice. Any ideas?

Again, it is almost \100% sure this is because you are not in the right mode.  Keep in mind the Airbus logic is totally different from other aircraft.

Well did the flight over several times and came to this realization for me anyway, The plane has to be flown EXACTLY as planned with correct speeds etc. for the co-pilot call outs to be integrated into the flight and do what they and the flight are supposed to.One missed speed or setting will turn the co-pilot off to respond to current flight correctly. Again just because you have the co-pilot doesn't mean the program is "flexible"and allows for any inaccuracies in programming it doesn't.

 

Anyway worked like a charm when everything is EXACT and by the way the airbus doesn't seem to like ANY increase in simulation speed which messes with the flight. That's something to explore since some flights are just to long.
