MD-11 FMS SID Question

Mon Oct 04, 2010 11:49 pm

Setting up a scenario from CYYZ 15R to KSFO with the Pearson 9 departure.

Pearson 9 for 15R has 6.3% up to 3000, Rwy heading to 7.9 YTP MNM 3000.

Looks like radar vectors to the first waypoint on the route ARTHR ~40nm west.

Does anyone have programing advise or SOP for the FMS from the MANUAL line to ARTHR?

I would assume hand flying or speed climb/heading on AP until a "cleared direct" is issued would be how it's handled?

Anything to watch for leaving the MANUAL line blank on the right?

Interested in anything y'all have to say.

Also - would a PBD Waypoint, say YTP / 147 / 7.9, be the right thing to enter in place of the MANUAL waypoint?

No, just do what the SIDPT says. Runway hdg 147 for vectors. I would be careful deleting the man leg but you can see above the MANUAL it shows hdg 147 so you can just NAV it.
