I was wondering-
looking at the autopilot controls, the AP is off, so the F/O is flying the approach manually. However, even though his hand is on the throttle, the A/T button is engaged (green light) and next to the FMS managed speed window, there is a dot indicating that it is engaged.
if this is correct, is the F/O simply waiting to take it off A/T or will he just let the A/T do its thing by itself? also, i know pilots like to fly manual approaches is conditions permit, do they also like manual speed?
If that is wrong, then is he overidding the FMS?
Thanks in advance!
