!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

Detailed Example of VNAV Descent Issues

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


So here's my attempt to help you identify the issues with VNAV still. I see there's an experimental download available, but I'm not sure where the "experimental" channel is? Can someone link there? 


Airbus: A320 CFM





At CLE there's an altitude restriction on the star that says between 10K and 7K. After passing CLE, the plane did a dive upwards of 7,000 ft per minute to get to the next restriction (per screenshot) which I believe was the IAF at 2300. That's a HUGE nose dive, and this was even after I started regaining control, so the descent rate was actually worse. As you can see the magenta dot is at the bottom, and despite it chasing the magenta dot, I would've assumed that descent rate was far outside of the envelope for the plane to even do this automatically on its own. Additionally, notice the complete disregard for speed restrictions under 10,000 ft.

But dont think this woud improve the descent behavior. We talk since months about the bad descent behavior and I can not recognice any improvement.
