PERFORMING A DIRECT-TO ON TOP OF A FLIGHT PLAN
The Direct-To function allows you to perform a short cut while flying a
flight plan by skipping over intermediate legs and flying directly to a point
further along your flight plan. Once the selected point is reached, the
normal flight plan is automatically resumed.
On the ETA's Screen (Screen 41A), Key 3 is labeled DIRECT TO. The
cursor bar, which is highlighting the current destination waypoint, can be
moved up and down the active flight plan with the joystick.
If a waypoint further down the flight plan is selected then the DIRECT TO
key is hit, the unit will return to the map with a pseudo DIRECT TO run-
ning on top of the flight plan to the selected point. The CDI will be cen-
tered and the FROM-TO box will be replaced with a 'direct to' box. Once
the selected point is reached, the normal flight plan is automatically
This function is very useful if you have been forced off your flight plan
and wish to take the flight plan up again at a later waypoint.
PERFORMING A DIRECT TO A POINT NOT IN THE ACTIVE FLIGHT
Key 5, labeled DATABASE gives access to the entire database from
which any point can be chosen to fly directly to. A description of this
process is contained in section 10. If you have a flight plan running and
you use this process to fly directly to an unrelated destination, when that
destination is reached or if the DIRECT TO is cancelled, the original flight
plan will be resumed at its nearest point.
