Embraer E-Jet MCDU - test flight request

Postby tdammers » Fri Jul 24, 2020 7:54 pm

Hi all,

I've put a bunch of work into giving the E-Jet family a working MCDU. It's nowhere near complete yet, but a couple of essentials should work, particularly:

- The RADIOS page is fully working
- It is possible to select departure and arrival airports through the RTE screen, as well as STARs, SIDs, and approaches, via the DEPARTURE and ARRIVAL pages
- Takeoff and landing performance settings
- In-flight changes to the flight plan, such as deleting waypoints, inserting directs, changing altitude and speed constraints
- PERF INIT, POS INIT, NAV IDENT

This is a rather massive change, so before I merge it, I'd love to get some feedback.

The MCDU-enabled version can be found here: https://github.com/YV3399/E-jet-family-YV/tree/mcdu

Hi tdammers,
I've dowloaded the ZIP file and I'll make some tests in the weekend.
Regards.

I decided to try these updates because I really like this jet. I get the following crash. I tried a different variant and got a similar message but a different property.

Yeah, the naming is a bit of a mess unfortunately. I'll probably start providing ready-to-install zipfiles at some point, it's on my list.
