 Take your time and look around the Cockpit for a bit. Read the panel names and get an idea where which panel is located. Lets start a bit of a tour through the flight deck of the Q400. Take your time and look around the Cockpit for a bit. Read the panel names and get an idea where which panel is located.

Line 472: Line 438:
 VNAV PATH will engage once the vertical profile is intercepted. To intercept use any other vertical, e.g. vertical speed and either increment the descent rate if you are above profile or reduce sinkrate or even level off when the vertical deviation shows that the flight plan is above you. VNAV PATH will engage once the vertical profile is intercepted.

 +==== Flight Management System (FMS) ====
  
 +The Q400 uses the Universal FMS which is also used in the Learjet 45 and in the specific 737-500 simulated in Aerofly FS 2. The FMS is described in detail on the [[aircraft:​universal_uns1_fms|Universal UNS-1]] wiki page.
