    Smile FMC quiz

    I've just completed a new feature and I thought I might as well make a quiz out of it so people might learn something.

    Below you see a 737 ND, showing an FMC feature:

    What is the name of this feature and why is this useful?

    Good try, but not correct. An offset feature would move the path laterally. The turns would remain intact.

    Hi Marty,

    My guess is "DIRECT TO" SOKSI intersection and continue from there.

    Hi,
    I was thinking that it was on a STAR and the "added" waypoints would be for speed/alt numbers in the FMC

    You are getting close. The aircraft was on a STAR and a directo to SOKSI was issued by ATC. But this still doesn't solve the extra points visible.
