I just wanted to point out something I think is erroneous regarding AP/FD modes displayed in FMA (upper area of PFDs), after creating a flight plan to be flown in managed modes:
- When starting the takeoff run, vertical mode SRS is properly engaged, but lateral mode should be RWY (or RWY TRK provided there is no ILS associated to takeoff runway) instead of blank until CLB mode activates at ACC ALT.
- When a heading is preselected before takeoff, likewise RWY (TRK) should be active during takeoff run but HDG mode is in blue below, waiting for pilot to pull HDG knob to activate it. In AF2, HDG mode becomes active just after liftoff, which is incorrect as aircraft might begin a roll at a very low altitude.
- When in flight if I make a DIR TO towards a waypoint, it seems to me that F-PLN from that waypoint disappears (I have to check it again anyway).
- Otherwise I tried to use the new feature for suggested ALT CRZ by clicking the corresponding LSK in MCDU, but when I insert it there is no reflection in FCU ALT window nor PFD display.
