MCDU: Editing F-Plan?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

At first, nice aircraft. :)

On my last flight, i have to cross an intersection at 4000ft. A look to my MCDU F-Plan shows me, that it is planned for 16.000ft. Is there any chance to edit the F-Plan in the MCDU, so that i can cross the intersection at the correct flight level?

Furthermore, calculates the MCDU my Top of Descent and shows it me on the ND? Is this the case, what could it be the reason why i cant see it?

Inorder to follow such constraints better revert to selected mode.

You can also start the descend earlier by dialing a lower altitude into the FCU altitude window and push the ALT Knob, then when You wan´t to descend press the EXP button.

Simply use the 3:1 rule..

Flying at 32.000 ft -want to descend to 3000 ft (ILS intercept)

Means 32.000 - 3000 = 29.000 ft

3:1 rule works this way:

29.000 / 300 = 96.6 nm

So You need to start Your descend 96.6 nm from Your destination + some leeway for wind etc.

V/S should be around ÷1800 ft/min
