I've had it for about 3 years and I'm getting back into the jet and really enjoying it. Such a great add-on!
Granted I'm a bit rusty with the FMC, but I've tried the tutorials and can't figure this one out. BTW, I have the "last" patch to make it fully FS2002 compatable.
I've had issues with installation bugs before, like one time I couldn't dial any new setting into the course knob. A reinstall fixed the problem. So it may be that this complex bird installed funny. But I've reinstalled recently to "freshen" things up and it's still doing these things...
Problem 1: The "brakes" message stays lit while airborne. Only plane in FS2002 that does this and it doesn't do it on the ground. Is this an aircraft config fix?
Problem 2: I'm having trouble autolanding. It won't let me activate the approach button. I have the whole flight plan laid out in the FMC, the destination runway set, ILS freq set, performance initialization with speed and flaps setting. I'm straight down the pipe, 7 miles out and it won't let me engage autoland. I make the final turn using LNAV, adjust altitude to intercept and it just won't light the button. I fly right over the airport.
Problem 3: In the FMC, the last few legs of the flight (runway final approach waypoint and runway) won't let me set a speed other than 210. Why is that? Am I supposed to be coming off of VNAV as I get close to the airport and take over my descent and speed manually on the MCP?
Thanks for the help!
