Just found out about the 777 tutorial: I didn't look at the 77 before but it seemed a nice challenge so I decided to go for it. But I am stuck immediately. I can't enter runway 25 into the CDU. I entered KDEN on the POS INIT page, went to the RTE page and it showed this already:
So I didn't have to enter KDEN at all as the tutorial says. But anyway, I tried to overwrite the default 16R with 25 but I just can't get it done. It doesn't work. So I am stuck after about 2 steps already LOL
Any idea how to get this done? According to the tutorial I simply should be able to enter 25...?
I tried to select the runway from the DEP/ARR page but it's completely empty... no runways to select from at all.
In order to not waste timing waiting for the answer I decided to skip the CDU part and set up the flight on the AFS2 Navigation page. I noticed the tutorial says: 'Click on San Francisco on the map, select ILS 26L for the arrival.' That should be 'Click on San Francisco on the map, select ILS 28L for the arrival.'
When the tutorial tells you to turn on the LAV and VNAV, shouldn't you also turn on the A/T...? The tutorial seems to be missing that step...? Further on the tutorial seems to indicate the A/T should have been on ('Monitor how the autothrottle advances the thrust').
How do you actually turn on A/T...? I teleported my plane as described in the tutorial and noticed speed went up higher and higher during descent. I then by accident pressed the IAS button and the A/T light went on. But speeds are going higher and higher and the IAS window shows 750...? BTW During take off I already thought something was wrong because I had to move the throttle manually. I only ARMED the A/T, apparently. Any info on how to actually and properly put A/T on would be appreciated.
Okay, speeds went too high, flight aborted. I really can't figure out how to work with the A/T... It seems the tutorial misses a few steps regarding A/T? Back to the Q400 or Arrow it is for now.
