Airbus Vnav

Recommended Posts

Hi...How can I get the autopilot to put the plane in max climb to hold set airspeed...On Boeing it's called VNAV...The EXP button makes the plane climb until it stalls...thanks

You will have to use the 'open climb' feature by pulling the altitude knob (after you have selected a new target altitude).. The autothrust will go to CLB thrust and the climb rate will adjust according to your set airspeed, that will give you the max climb. I think this is similar to 'lvl change' on Boeing.

It gives you an ability to briefly rapidly climb or descend, for example to avoid a conflict with another aircraft. In the real aircraft, the systems will stop you from reaching the stall, but that's apparently quite difficult to achieve in FSX coding, as every Airbus I've met yet has stalled or overspeeded when using Expedite.

 

Cheers,
