ProSimB738 version 3.08

Post by martin.vsetecka »

Jul 20 2021 Release Version 3.08
======================================
System:
Navigation
- [FMS][VNAV] Added VNAV ALT cockpit setup option
- [FMS][VNAV] Added MCP altitude capture inhibit
Note: When in a LNAV/VNAV approach, it should be possible to select missed approach altitude in the MCP without reverting the pitch mode
- [FMS][VNAV] Added deceleration segments
Note: If required, VNAV will add a shallower deceleration segment to comply with speed restrictions
- [FMS][VNAV] Added idle descent FPA adjustable for speed
Note: Idle descend segment will be steeper for higher descend speeds and shallower for slower descend speeds. This will change the T/D location.
- [FMS][VNAV] Added energy compensation program (beta)
Note: If descending and in VNAV ALT, target speed will be adjusted to compensate for vertical deviation from the path
- [FMS][VNAV] Added cockpit setup option to enable energy compensation
- [FMS][VNAV] Added cockpit setup option to change VNAV speed descend thresholds
Defaults are set to +15/-10. Possible values are [+|-][5|10|15]
- [FMS][VNAV] Added (shallower) approach decel segment
- [FMS][VNAV] Added cockpit setup option to enable gradual commanded speed (beta)
Note: When a speed reduction is commanded by the VNAV, change will happen gradually.
- [FMS][VNAV] VNAV PATH upper threshold exceedance logic revised to comply with FMS version
Note: Not applicable to the NG. Part of the NG/MAX base FMS work.
U14 will revert to SPD.
Up to U13 will trigger DRAG REQUIRED and mode will remain on PATH
- [FMS][VNAV] Allow engagement of VNAV during a G/A if above 400 RA
- [FMS][VNAV] Reviewed early descent
- [FMS][VNAV] Reviewed CRZ DES mode
- [FMS][VNAV] Reviewed historic vnav speed
- [FMS][VNAV] Do not command descend speed if near T/D and cruise speed is lower than descend speed
- [FMS][VNAV] Fixed VNAV not remembering previous commanded speed if VNAV refreshed
Note: When a change is made requiring VNAV to recalculate and A/C has a restricted speed, VNAV was not using previous cmd speed, but default one.
- [FMS][VNAV] Fixed Thrust mode not reverting to MCP SPEED with SPD INT
- [FMS][VNAV] Fixed ALT INT deleting all constraints during climb
Note: When climbing, ALT INT was deleting all constraints for the entire route if MCP altitude above last climb restriction
- [FMS][VNAV] Fixed VNAV not engaging in some conditions
Note: When FMS is already in descend or approach phase, it is not possible to re-engage VNAV for a climb if aircraft is still before TOD.
This can happen after a reposition.
- [FMS][VNAV] Revised thrust mode for path descend
- [FMS][VNAV] SPD INT should reset if VNAV SPD selected from CDU
- [FMS][VNAV] SPD DES should revert to PATH DES when active leg has fixed FPA
- [FMS][VNAV] Changing Common VNAV option should revert VNAV
Note: Common VNAV option requires VNAV to be recycled to get proper logic. If changing this option, VNAV will revert to ALT HOLD/MCP SPD to force re-engagement.
- [FMS][VNAV] Improved UNABLE CRUISE ALT message to verify climb/descent overlap situation
- [FMS][VNAV] Improved vertical and thrust modes for descent to prevent flickering in some conditions
- [FMS][VNAV] Fixed SPEED DES overshooting alt constraints

- [FMS] Added small margin to altitude difference when trying to engage VNAV already at cruise altitude
- [FMS] Added cockpit setup option to change ALT INT mode [Delete all restrictions to MCP altitude | Delete first restriction only]
