Excellent tutorial...this has helped me immensely.

One question--how does the approach speed get in the MCP window?  Is this automatically set once APP mode is engaged?  Reason I am asking is that you seem to be on an awfully short final, but your speed was showing 234 knots.  I find myself going to SPD mode and setting the Vref in the window manually.



you've to manually slow down speed. Cannot transfer speed to MCP as far as I remember(unless you press VNAV then it would pick from FMC)
Yes my approach speed is bit high at that point but that point is where i'm trying to intercept localizer but right at runway threshold my speed is close to what i calculated . You basically show down as you come down the glideslope extending flaps. Cheers Wink

I think you're using FS9 version. perhaps a bug? are you still getting same issue. Has anyone else using FS9 version got same issue?

Aussie, I programed the CDU and pressed the lsk next to V1, Vr V2 to finalize in FMC.

When I select the arr runway on the approach ref page the gross land weight is blank. Cannot manually enter the weight to obtain Vref speeds. I thought the FMS auto calculated the landing weight. I must be missing a step in order for the landing weight to appear. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hey thanks for the tutorial!  I have just one question though.  When you found the CG you found it to be 13 notches back from the firewall (or whatever the 757 uses).  Then you took 13 and divided it by 32.  Is that because there are 32 notches total and you just divide what your CG is by 32?  What if it had been 17?  Would it still be 17/32 x 100?

Is there a way to add or delete waypoints to the flight plan in the fmc while enrt, other than making a new fp and loading it with the deleted or added way points?

hi, thanks for making this tutorial, it is great to have people like you who can help others, just one thing to ask, my autopilot worked fine but when my computer crashed i had to reinstall every thing including CS757, i did and installed the update from the justflight website and now my auto pilot goes nuts!!! it banks from side to side and stalls the aircraft by pitching up to much! Sad

Can you help me, thanks

Aussie, What am I doing wrong? I purchased 757 Captain and I can't get the autopilot to work. I've owned FS since the beginning in all the iterations. I have no problem with A/P in the 737 and 747 that com with FSX but this 757 has me questioning I have a bad disk. Example; IRS, I click Align in all 3 columns and wait till the light in each goes out, then I switch to NAV in all 3. Then the 3 Align start flashing, is that normal. When in flight while I'm straigt and level and at cruising speed I try to switch on Alt/Hold and Heading/Hold and they don't work, the plane usually goes into a bank and then dive? I also don't know when to flip the F/D switch(usually right away) but again, in the dark. I know this is probibly tedious for you but could you possibly help me or direct me towards something that will show me the proper procedure for using the autopilot for this "Just Flight 757 Captain program. Thank you for your time.

@swivelhi,
To stop the IRS from blinking, enter the aircraft position in the CDU, using the pos init page. This should stop them from blinking. Also, make sure your yaw dampers are active (and working). I don't have the probs you describe, and I'm certainly not a specialist, but maybe that could help.

Your IRS isn't aligned. The flashing "ALIGN" lamps indicate a fault.

Try this:

1) APU = ON ; Engines = OFF
2) Set IRS from "OFF" to "ALIGN" (all 3 columns). Wait for it to set.
3) Go to CDU/FMC. Choose "POS INIT". Copy your last known LAT/LONG to the scratch pad by hitting the button on the TOP RIGHT and then paste that in where it says something like "SET IRS POS"
4) Now - switch IRS from "ALIGN" to "NAV"

You should no longer get the flashing ALIGN lights. Now it should be set!

When  do this tutorial, the plane just accelerates and never takes off, even though it's reached the speed at which it can take off, it just keeps accelerating off the runway. My question is, what'd I do wrong?

Did you pull back on the stick?

Anyhow, good tut except, according to a normal ops checklist I have, you don't engage LNAV until 400' AGL.  You also don't engage VNAV until 1000' AGL.

You have to set the correct CG value in the FMS (center of gravity). Then the plane will rotate and takeoff without pulling the yoke.

Good Afternoon and Merry Christmas
I've a problem in the point 3 of this beautiful tutorial.
When I press "Yaw Damper", the left is on ON, while del right one, is on ON but the orange light of INOP is still Light.

What is my error? Thanks to all!
