Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

It would also be nice to change the target altitude after descent is initialised or put the aircraft into approach mode manually like the real thing otherwise its very easy to get to the airport and not be able to use the ILS. That's true. Sometimes you need to capture the localiser or the glideslo...

First of all, many thanks for this excellent set of freeware planes. There are a few things to make it more realistic: -The autothrottle should stay in managed mode until touchdown. When you get within 30nmi of the runway, the plane will go into approach mode, slow to slats speed, then once you sel...
