Hello

First of all, I wish you a happy new year and wish you all the best for your wishes.

I have an issue for ToD, i have right information on ND. At the top, my thrust is reduced to idle for beginning descent but nothing, i have to force the descent by apply alt intv?.

Do i miss something?.

Many thanks to all

Have a nice day

Emmanuel.

Once you reach your Cruise Altitude you should be in VNAV PTH.
Prior to TOD you should select a lower altitude, this will allow VNAV to descend on the VNAV descent profile.

If you have (for example) entered a cruise altitude of 24000 and set 23000 on the MCP, VNAV will level off at 23000 and enter VNAV ALT mode.
(This is the VNAV equivalent of ALT HOLD) .
If you remain in VNAV ALT mode VNAV will not descend you at TOD until you release it by pressing ALT INTV.

If you are at your entered cruise altitude (24000) and the MCP Altitude equals the cruise altitude (24000) and you're in VNAV ALT mode, pressing ALT INTV will switch it to VNAV PTH.

Hi Mark

Many thanks.

My case concerned the point 1 :
"Once you reach your Cruise Altitude you should be in VNAV PTH.
Prior to TOD you should select a lower altitude, this will allow VNAV to descend on the VNAV descent profile. "

I will check next flight if i have right information vnav pth on fma.

I will back soon,

Have a nice day

Emmanuel
