How to enagge HDG mode?

Post by keeska » Thu Jun 21, 2018 10:18 pm

FSX Boxed with SP2 and Accel
Windows 7

Version is V3.02 11M

I have been trying to egage HDG mode in two situations:

1. Divating from course for weather or traffic.

2. While flying STAR part of the procedure is to "Fly heading 057 to
intercept the localizer". (Example - DINGO5 to KUS)

From the documentation "CX20 Flight Guidence Controller.pdf"

"HDG (Heading) Button. The HDG button commands the flight guidance
system to follow inputs from the heading bug on the selected PFD. When
HDG is pushed, the command bars on the PFD follow the position of the
heading bug."

and

"HEADING SELECT MODE
The Heading Select Mode intercepts and maintains a heading. Engaging this mode
resets all previously selected lateral modes.
To Engage:
1. Select the PFD for coupling, using the PFD SEL (select) button on the flight
guidance controller.
2. Position the heading bug on the selected PFD Horizontal Situation Indicator
(HSI), using the HEADING knob on the Remote Instrument Controller.
3. Push the HDG (heading) button on the flight guidance controller. A HDG is
annunciated on the PFD and flight director steering commands to intercept
and maintain the proper heading."

However the airplane does not follow the selected heading. Instead it
continues straight and level.

How do I engage HDG mode in the above 2 situations?

Thank you,

michael

If you are using LNAV and VNAV you must first select ALT before you can switch to HDG.
Thanks,

Thank you. Must it be ALT mode or can I switch to VS or FLCH if I am in a VNAV descent (descending per the STAR)?

I'll give it a try this evening.

Michael,

I've found you can engage VS or FLCH and switch to an enabled HDG mode.
