We’re now entering a full flight from one airport to another using the Multifunction-Control-Display-Unit (MCDU). If you already set up a flight plan with the navigation menu you can skip a lot of the following steps. We’ve highlighted the necessary steps in bold text.
- Select the MCDU MENU page if not already displayed by pressing the MCDU MENU button on the MCDU
- Select FMGC by pressing the line select 1L
- The aircraft status page is displayed
In the real aircraft we’d now have to check if the navigation database is still up to date.
