Martinlest wrote:Right, thanks. I kind of asked the question wrongly, I meant when do you push the ALT knob to engage managed mode (rather than CLB mode). You answered that really anyway.
I think that that tallies with what happens.. (I get SPEED indicated on the PFD until I go to managed mode). As I say, I need to try all this out in the sim now...
Funny, the (ToLiss) a319 I also fly in X-Plane has none of these 'issues'.. but some of the problem in the a320 (with the speed fall off) is surely down to me, even so.
Martinlest wrote:After a quick test, this seems much better. I do not engage the A/P now until after I move to THR CLB. Seems stable. I just have to remember to set managed mode before the dialed-in altitude is reached, or the AP switches to V/S and keeps climbing...
