Thread: flight director

  1. Default flight director

    Saw on a recent 'pilots eye' video, airbus descending,using a visual approach, into airport where the captain asked the co pilot to switch off the flight director. Wondered if anyone had any thoughts on whether this is a standard procedure in these circumstances. Soz if this question has been asked before.

    Wrong forum, but yes, this is a normal procedure.
    If you are using the FD you follow it exactly.
    If you don't, you switch it off instead of disregarding its commands.

    That's the SOP for every Airline I've flown for. Vis App, you're looking out the window for guidance.
