B737 GPS/FMS

Part 5: Flight Plan Entry YEG-YYZ


B737 gps fms

Background

  • This will be a PTT exercise with a flight plan from Edmonton to Toronto

  • The departure from Edmonton will be from RWY 30 and arrivals in Toronto are using RWY 24L and 24R

  • Do Not Reset the PTT or Exit from the PTT at he conclusion of this module as the flight plan you have just created will be used in Part 6 to “fly” the PTT to Toronto


B737 gps fms

  • Start the PTT

  • Load the databases by selecting the database files, Caxxxx.ldr

  • When asked to select company routes, select “Cancel”

  • Notice that the MCDU will go through a self test of the annunciator lights

  • Choose FMS 1 Requesting <LSK 1>


B737 gps fms

  • Verify Databases

  • if the database is out of date, select the secondary database <LSK 3R> to move it into the scratchpad

  • Move the new database into the active <LSK 2R>

  • Once Database is verified select POS INIT <LSK 6R>


B737 gps fms

  • Verify Time and Date are correct

  • REF AIRPORT should be the current airport.

  • Note:

    • if FMS was OFF during aircraft movement around the airport, it may take a few moments upon power-up for the FMS to determine its position

    • for PTT simulation, the REF AIRPORT will have to be entered via the scratchpad (CYEG) and <LSK 2L>


B737 gps fms

  • Choose INIT/REF <LSK 6L>

  • Choose SET UP <LSK 5L>


B737 gps fms

  • Verify Display is (MAG) or (TRUE), as required

  • Verify FMS IS (SYNCHRONIZED)

  • Note: the green caret beside <LSK 1L> and <LSK 5L> means that the pilot can toggle between the two choices (MAG and TRUE or SYNCHRONIZATION and INDEPENDENT)

  • Select ROUTE <LSK 6R> to begin entering the flight plan


B737 gps fms

  • Enter the destination airport into the scratchpad (CYYZ) then move it to the DEST field by selecting <LSK 1R>

  • Note:

    • the DEST field is a mandatory field

    • RUNWAY, FLT NO, etc. are optional fields _ _ _ _ _ _

    • the RTE becomes a MOD(ified) route with reverse CYAN


B737 gps fms

  • the EXEC command becomes available meaning that new, executable information has been entered but not executed

  • the ERASE (LSK 6L> is now available. Using ERASE will eliminate all entries since the last EXEC selection

  • Enter the departure runway (30) onto the scratchpad then <LSK 2L>

  • Enter Flight Number (956) onto the scratchpad then <LSK 2R>


B737 gps fms

  • Using the DEP ARR Function, select the appropriate departure from CYEG (if applicable) using <LSK 1L>


B737 gps fms

  • Select ROUTE to display the RTE page.

  • Enter the flight plan into the FMS as per the flight plan route as filed with ATC: “DCT CAMRA J515 YXE J576 YXZ J525 YMS V164 YYZ”

  • ‘Direct to’ Waypoints are entered on the right side

  • Airways are entered on the left side with a terminating waypoint on the right side.

  • NEXT is used to access another RTE page if necessary.


B737 gps fms

Select PROG and ‘PREV’ to access PROG page 4/4.

Enter the current altimeter setting (LSK 6R).

The altimeter setting is required to provide baro-corrected altitude to enable automatic sequencing of departure or departure transition procedure legs with altitude terminations.


B737 gps fms

  • Select LEGS

  • The Capt will confirm the bearing and distance to each waypoint on the flight plan agrees with those read from the legs page by the F/O.

  • On confirmation from the Capt that the entered flight plan is correct, the Capt will instruct the F/O to “EXECUTE”

  • .

  • As another check for data input accuracy, select PROG page 2/4 and compare distance to DEST with flight plan total distance. The distance may not be exact but should be ‘reasonably close’.


B737 gps fms

  • The STAR, TRANSITION and APPROACH will normally be programmed just prior to Top of Descent after having received a clearance and/or the arrival information.

  • Select DEP ARR

  • Use the PREV or NEXT key to locate the appropriate arrival page.

  • Select the STAR

  • Select the Transition

  • Select the Approach

  • Select the APPROACH TRANS


B737 gps fms

Note:This entry (destination altimeter setting) would be made just prior to top of descent .

Select PROG and ‘PREV’ to access PROG page 4/4.

Enter the current altimeter setting (LSK 6R).

The altimeter setting is required to provide baro-corrected altitude to enable automatic sequencing of arrival or missed approach procedure legs with altitude terminations.
