    Airbus Type PM

    Hi folks,

    I'd like to ask you how you can other waypoints be introduced in the PM MCDU; by "other" waypoints I mean the ones that are referenced to a VOR for example, giving a heading and a distance (in the PSS airbus this was introduced as VOR/180/10 (being this a point located 10nnm away from the VOR on the radial 180)).

    Other points are defined by giving two VOR's and a radial for each (VOR1-030/VOR2-180).

    Any idea?

    Thanks!!

    Not sure if this question is still open but here we go :

    enter waypoint at 12 miles on radial 234 from VOR BUB : BUB234/12
    enter waypoint at intersection of radial 252 from BUB and radial 288 from SPI : BUB252/SPI288

    This is not like PSS...not sure how to enter it in the real deal...
