FMC Enhancements to Improve LNAV and VNAV Operations
Additional FMC enhancements are being studied or developed to further improve LNAV and VNAV approach
operations, including

  • LNAV missed approaches, which enable the crew to arm and engage an LNAV missed approach by pressing the takeoff/go-around button. This option reduces crew workload during a busy period in the flight deck.
  • Branching missed approaches, which allow one of several preplanned missed approach procedures to be engaged for the applicable approach leg.
