Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Waiting for me to correct the code, think that you can trigger the descent before the TOD : When you are at less that 200Nm of destination airport, if you select an altitude below cruise altitude, and push the ALT knob, you engage the descent.

That's true. Sometimes you need to capture the localiser or the glideslope above the target altitude and the aircraft won't let you do it. This is one reason, why it is reasonable for the airport creator to set the STAR exit (=Approach entry) 1 or 2 or even more waypoints before ILS capture. This d...
