    Default Another FMC Question

    How do the V/B, and V/S displays work on the DES page? I know
    what they are supposed to do, but they never work. Why is this? Since I fly for Southwest I don't use VNAV. Does VNAV have to be engaged to have the V/B and V/S displays work?
    Thanks,
    Brad

    Or perhaps they're trying to stay alive in the currently harsh aviation climate.

    Brad,
    That's interesting. So, is the A/T system itself expensive to maintain.....or does it cause additional maintanence on other items (engines, etc.)?

    Surely it would cost more not to use it. I imagine it can ease work load and maintain certain speeds far more accurately than a pilot without suffering any fatigue! This is a strange one indeed.

    low fairs airlines are seeing a real boost in passenger numbers, atleast in the UK anyway. I think Southwest is a low fairs airline ?
