KirkR Posted August 29, 2022 Report Share Posted August 29, 2022 GA's really take some practice to get the fast moving process down. From my practice, I lean away from using the GA checklist, with one reason being that I do not prefer how it chooses FLC, but also because so many things occur so quickly and pressing next checklist item button so many times during that intense process is not ideal. The issue I run into occurs after the HOLD (MAP) when I vector myself (HDG) for the same approach again. The issue I am running into is that "Set GA Thrust" suddenly "jumps in" at a time where it is the least expected (when moving to the Before Landing checklist after the GA and HOLD, as I am re-establishing on the ILS approach again). I will outline some aspects of my process as follows: - shoot normal ILS approach (descent, in range, before landing checklists were all used) - MA initiated (TO/GA + ATS-disc, flaps 30, gear up, flaps 20, flaps up, AP + NAV, re-establish ATS, pattern altitude captured, enter MAP HOLD. No checklist used. - Exit HOLD, HDG for vectors back to re-shoot approach - On 30 deg intercept crs for ILS, at appropriate altitude for intercept, just outside of IF - Select "Next Checklist" from top menu, initiates Before Landing checklist. This is when "Set Takeoff Thrust" appears, TO thrust is automatically set by the system, and everything now is screwed up. Note: it seems that after a MA, any time that I use Next Checklist to bring up the next checklist, that the "Set Takeoff Thrust" action is taken by the system. It's like it isn't handling when I skip the GA checklist and is dead set on initiating GA Thrust itself regardless, but triggered by "Next Checklist." My goal has been to generate a clean, representative video of the GA and subsequent re-shoot approach scenario to post in the forum. But there are aspects of the process that I need to understand in order to make this work properly. I presently do leverage the checklists, with the one exception being the GA checklist. It seems that possibly I may have created a problem by doing it manually and not using it. It would be of high value if there is documentation that helps with understanding of the GA process (how the sim is set up with respect to use of the checklists, or skipping of the checklists) including the subsequent re-shoot of the approach, and possibly from this information I can figure out the issue. Let me know what additional questions I can answer to help shed light on it. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
