Hello

It's a question for a beginner i am but i don't know how change route for an alternate airport.

I think i can change destination on route page and then entering the differents points but i saw another page which is altn dest. Do i use it for changing plan and how do that not so clear for me.

Many thanks for your lesson.

Emmanuel

Not sure, as my sim is not functional right now but, if I remember well, you have two pages you can use( and toggle between the two)
Nearest airports and Alternate destinations

They give you distance ETA and fuel for each airport.
You choose an airport with the RIGHT side LSK

On the next (airport ) page you can choose Direct or Missed Approach
Direct is default
You can select Missed Approach LSK (left)
Missed approach sends you to your original destination where you can try an approach before being redirected to your alternate.
Try it and maybe someone will chime in with a better method...lol

Hell

Many thanks Jacks for your return.

I did it today flight to lfkj-lfpo divert to lsgg.

I'm using the altn dest page. Forced LSGG information. Selected it lsk1l and i saw the route direct on ND.

But i had to modify DEST on ROUTE Page and go to DEP/ARR page to select the current STAR and RWY in use.

Is it correct?.
