Do You Use The FMC On Your FS Flights?

Sun Jun 16, 2002 11:58 am

Hey everyone,

Just wondering for those of you with FMC equipped planes-do you use the FMC during your flights? Personally, I have yet to use the FMC that came with 767PIC mainly because I do short flights and just manually tune to the VORs that I want to use. Plus, I haven't quite gotten the hang of using one yet (still reading the manual).

Regards

James

Where do you get those planes from? All the ones I downloaded dont have FMCs.

Used the FMC in a ORD-HKG flight with a PSS 777-200IGW from British Airways. Just set 'er up, took off, flew to cruise altitude and let the computers do the rest, until I woke up the next morning, where I did the rest.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
