What is the difference beteween the two?
Is Managed = Auto and Selected = Man?
Can Selected be used with A/THR and A/P?
How to decide which one to choose?
How do you engage the different modes?
Do FBW Boeings have an equivalent?
|Quoting Nomik (Reply 2):|
Managed means the aircraft is fully automated and is flying a FMC-generated profile full of its own determined speed and constraints.
If there is no ATC intervention at all,the aircraft is designed to fly managed from 100FT AGL on T/O to 100FT or AutoLand.
It will climb to altitude and upon reaching the TOD nearing the destination,it will upon pressing ALT descend all the way to 1000FT AGL on-speed and while the pilots are configuring the aircraft with flaps and gear,will make a normal touchdown every time.
To fly in the managed mode the pilot must push one of the modes on the FCU.
Selected means the aircraft is not flying in a managed mode,such as a selected speed where ATC has issued you a speed to fly.
Pilots have more control of the aircraft as they directly make inputs that control the plane.
This is done by pulling any of the modes on the FCU.
Push to give it all away and pull to take it all back.
