The FMS — Flight Management System — as installed on large transport-category airplanes is complex.
Use this app to quickly understand the concepts and flows of a typical installation.
Over 200 pages of tutorial take you through a typical pre-flight sequence, and cover every function used on a typical flight.
Includes detailed explanations of difficult topics, such as the HOLD functions, choosing alternate airports, and point/bearing/distance waypoints.
At any point, you can hide the tutorial and experiment with the full-featured emulator.
This app emulates the Smiths Industries FANS MCDU as installed on a Boeing 737-800.
The tutorial creates a flight plan from Honolulu to Los Angeles, California.
