This is why we pack extra fuel 😂
I’m currently flying EHAM to KMSP in the KLM 772. This plane is amazing. I departed three hours ago. Guess where I am?
Been flying for three hours and barely left the SID 😂
I think LNAV has an issue. The waypoints were close, but they were mostly in a straight line. There have been a few community members that I know this has happened to (in different aircraft types; not just the 772). I’m pretty sure it didn’t happen before 20.1.
I’ve activated a leg farther down the flight plan and it’s going smoothly now.
If you’re wondering, this post serves two purposes:
1). LNAV (might) have an issue and (may) need to be looked into.
2). If you have a SID with a bunch of waypoints close together, activate a leg farther down. Fly the SID without LNAV and activate LNAV once your waypoints start getting farther apart.
How to activate a specific leg
You can do this by going to the map, clicking “MAP” at the bottom until it shows your flight plan. Click the desired waypoint and click “ACT LEG” at the bottom. Your aircraft will start flying toward that waypoint. This comes very handy in a lot of situations actually.
I hope that this gets looked into if necessary or that my post helped you to not have to circle for hours.
