Using speedbrake during VPATH Descend


Recommended Posts

When doing VPATH descend, if your speed gose too high  (and many times at lower altitude it does!) pull out the speed brake , engine will instantly spoon up, prevent you to lose any speed, even if you are already 30kts above the FMC commanded speed.

This problem persist from V2 version, Is this real airplane behivor? Doesn't seems like then.

I second this issue you cannot use the spoilers with A/T in VPATH descent to help it as it will just increase the throttle even though the speed you are at is much faster than the FMS speed indicated on the PFD. the only way i ever managed to get it to be less of an issue is shallow the descent path in the fms.
