Can anyone tell me the proper way to "expidite" my desent or climb? I have expereienced trouble when assending or decending when asked by ATC to expidite!
I tried taking control by disabling the AP but found I had no control and went into a stall. I was not able to change the vertical speed it only would show ----- hash lines?
Thank you again
To expedite your descent, push the "VS" or vertical speed button on the autopilot panel, then click on the VS wheel to set your vertical speed to whatever you need, such as -2000 or -3000 fpm. You don't have to disengage the autopilot.
Remember, you also have to set a new target altitude that is lower than your present altitude, and each time you change a target altitude after selecting an altitude change mode (SPD, VS, or FLC), you need to push the respective altitude change mode again so it will register.
thanks Bill for both replies!
