Nico De Lange Trying to figure out the auto pilot. Guess I should read the manual :) Bugger the auto pilot. Flew on "Stick and Rudder: :))
Ian Carine Well done! Unfortunately, I can't award extra "brownie" points for manual flying. Also please note, that you should not break the flight sequence. Please continue with the legs until you end up back at FAOR. Regards, Ian
