Thanks. Those were made so long ago that I don't even remember making them. Being on the 767 for three years makes it seem even longer.

I'm still going through all of it cautiously, trying to learn each and every bit, mostly energized by the very didactic way they were created but also the ENERGY brought by the NG FMC update HH brought to live recently.

Probably some of those videos could be updated to the NG logic / features, but that would certainly mean a LOT of work...

Just wanted to say thanks again for making these... with the arrival of the NG FMC has come a mew enthusiasm for VNAV approaches, so your two videos on that topic are especially welcome!

One question, Jon... On your second VNAV approach video, you showed a demo where you extended from the runway threshold fix, and mentioned (at 10:49) that a good time to turn base was when the vertical path deviation scale showed the aircraft being 1000 below the profile. And on your demo, you had the sim paused for a while with the vertical deviation showing 1540 feet below the profile.

I tried that on a downwind leg on a return-to-land circuit, initially with the downwind leg on HDG SEL. The FMC showed me NOT ON INTERCEPT HDG, which I understand, but the vertical deviation scale was missing. So I couldn't use it to determine when to turn base. It wasn't until I was already established on base that LNAV showed me the vertical path scale and pointer. Did I set it up wrong?

When the vertical deviation scale is not displayed, you are in ACT CLB or ACT CRZ. I guess you were at or above your new CRZ ALT.

Aha. Thanks, Hardy, you were right. I flew the circuit again, making sure I was in ACT DES at the right time, and the vertical deviation scale was right where it should have been.

BTW, that 1000' under rule-of-thumb came from an Atlas sim instructor.
