These problems began happening today and so I did an uninstall and reinstall of 2010 Professional (FS9). The FMA shows the dialed in altitude (110 as an example), HDG HLD and ALT HLD rather than ALT, TAK OFF, TAK OFF even after the autothrottle is engaged. I believe I have programed the FMC correctly.
Have I had a brain lapse in my procedures, or is something wrong with the sim? Thank you!
Well, yes, it was a brain lapse (I haven't flown the MadDog in awhile). I had forgotten about arming the TOGA!!!! How stupid is that?????
It happens, your only human without another human to check you off, aka a captain or FO, about the only thing I can think of, at this time, that could help you not forget things like that are flow patterns for the aircraft you fly, you could create these yourself based on what is easy for you or you could go by an airline's pattern if you can get or have flight/ops manuals. I go by a real airline's flow and it has created more realism and helped me not forget things like pressing the TOGA buttons.
