    Calling good Pilots

    Some of you guys know im well on my way with my little build and im still learning and creating.
    When it comes to actually flying its pretty much the same story, Im creating some strange approaches and generally flying around like a complete amateur at the controls of my 737-800 lol

    So can you more experienced pilots tell me where i am going wrong with my auto throttle. When i try and engage a/t my mcp lights momentarily and then cancels itself out, lighting the annunciator on the mip, its the same with speed and n1, I know its not a hardware problem because the same thing happens in the virtual cockpit, and i did fluke a flight once with a/t engaged, so is it something to do with me not flying the aircraft properly? ?

    Re: Calling good Pilots

    Hi Steve,

    which aircraft model do you use: default, PIC, PMDG or other? Is it on FS9 or FSX?

    Check your Ohead Panel. If Gen 1 and Gen 2 are not engaged(i.e. the blue annunciators are still lit) then the A/T will do as you describe.

    Re: Calling good Pilots

    Not quite sure what your question is. Maybe engaged is the wrong word but I was answering to solve the original poster's problem
    Look in your overhead panel and find the Gen1 and Gen 2 switches- bottom left. If the blue light above them is illuminated then flick the switch until the blue light is no longer illuminated. That will bring the electrics online. Hope this helps.
