    alright, heres a realy quick tutorial:

    1) Open FMC
    2)Go To The Index
    3)Hit POS
    4)type in your airport of origian
    5)hit route
    6)program in your arrical and departure airports
    7)hit "Next Page"
    program in your first waypoint followed by all successive waypoints/airways and your arrival airport
    9)hit whatever is in the bottom right of the FMC screen (I forget what its called)
    10) The EXEC button should turn white, hit it.
    11) Your Route is now programmed, DO NOT TOUCH THE FMC AFTER THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING
    12) To fly the route hit LNAV

    I hope this helps, if you have any more questions, post em here and I'll take a look when I get back from school.

    LMAO!

    btw, as far as I know there is no STAR for TNCM, I'll the flightplans I've found for TNCM usually end with a waypoint followed by Radar Vectors for either the Visual Approach, or the DME Approach.

    Can you add intersections to the FMC?

    I'd recommend going to www.ldsflyingclub.com and reading some of the tutorials. The 767-300 FMC is very powerful, and the 'tutorial' above is only letting you take advantage of about 15% of its power. Setting up the FMC to make use of both LNAV, VNAV, as well as fuel predictions, SID/STAR/Airway databases, etc. will give you a whole new level of realism in FS.

    Sam, you really are an arse and if you won't listen to me when I say I have crashes on then don't think you will be visiting FF again for a while

    to be honest I'd say that my quick tutorial above takes advantage of less then 15% of the FMCs power, thats just the most basic use of it, IMO anyway.

    Well, as soon as I get my compute back that has FS on it I'll be doing TNCM-CYYZ-CYVR-PHNL-CYVR-CYYZ-LFPG-CYYZ, all as Air Canada, all in the LDS763

    In all seriousness, FMC and all that seems complicated to me.

    once you get your head around all the different functions and basic operation, its really easy, I learned LNAV/VNAV and SID/STAR procedures for the LDS 767 in an afternoon (with some help from good old Andrew C).
