MD80 FMC Question

Thu Aug 03, 2006 4:59 pm


I have a question regarding the FMC of the MD_à :
When you use the function DIR INTC to join a waypoint following a certain radial, how does the plane join the radial :
Does it take automatically the shortest way to it, or does it use the mode "Heading sel" ?

Doesn't it stick to current heading until intercepting the course to the waypoint? And it'll give an indication if that is not able (ie: current heading won't intercept that course).

When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !
