    Descent mode

    Hello,

    A simple question. Can you tell me what indication is displayed on the screen in your EICAS when the cdu switches to descent mode (tod). for me, it remains in cruise mode..

    thank

    Re: Descent mode

    In the 737NG, the thrust modes that are displayed at the top of th EICAS are:

    R-TO – reduced takeoff
    R-CLB – reduced climb
    TO – takeoff
    CLB – climb
    CRZ – cruise
    G/A – go–around
    CON – continuous
    – – – – FMC not computing thrust limit

    Hope that helps.

    Sean

    You are correct, you will not sec Descent mode on the EICAS after
    the TOD and you started your descent.
