The 20.1 has been released with many features including the VNAV feature. I’m sure all of you know what VNAV is but here’s the link below if you don’t know what VNAV is.
VNAV is currently can only be used for descent. This feature request is for VNAV climb and cruise. This is to reach SID altitude restrictions and for step climbing. This will be especially useful and helpful for pilots doing Ultra Long Hauls or overnighters. While we are unconscious or away from our device, VANV will ascend for us. Let me know your thoughts below. Thanks for reading!
We need this! I do loads of long haul flights and sometimes I have to change from the initial altitude for FL340 to FL400 at the end of the flight. I think that if there is VNAV for descending there also should be one for climb!
Well it takes time for these type of features to come as making a vnav climb function, you also have to add a lot of several things such as flap bug speeds etc and well that takes a lot of time and effort on their end but on the other hand PMDG and aerosoft(I know they only make aircraft’s and not a flight simulator just an add on ) have programmed and made their vnav lnav systems pretty good just like in the real thing.It will come but time is time.
