What happened to INTC CRS?

Recommended Posts

Been flying the newly updated CRJ and have noticed the INTC CRS no longer appears on the LEGS page when selecting a waypoint. This function is quite useful, especially when being vectored onto an ILS approach. Say you're flying an ILS with a final app course of 125 and the final app fix is FALIA. While being vectored onto the approach you'd like to "activate" the approach in some way in the FMS to get an extended centerline to the FAP rather than just going DIRECT to FALIA so the FMS sequences the waypoints properly. So you'd accomplish this by selecting FALIA on the legs page and put in 125 in the INTC CRS line and execute.

I've seen this in the CRJ before, quite some time ago. It is even shown in the documentation, but no mention is made about its function.

You can see here from Vol6_FMS documentation:

And here is documentation I have found in FCOM for the CRJ900:

Okay, so it's not just me... I'm late to the party, having just gotten this plane yesterday. I fly CRJs for a living, so I wanted to try it out. This is how we intercept the ILS 95% of the time, so it's really a shame it's not there. Then I saw it in the documentation, and got even more confused... why would they model the feature, then take it out?

This is still on my to do list. It was implemented but I guess, I broke it at some point and it went unnoticed.
