I believe that TOGA is an acronym for Take Off Go Around (throttle control).
Any advice on how to activate or "use" this feature. I've had it work for me a time or two by accident, but I can't figure out how make it happen "at will".
Thanks for any help anyone may be able to offer.
This should help.
Thanks RadarMan, but ... I was thinking more along the lines of just what order the activation process takes, like:
A: Activate TOGA
B: Move throttle to TakeOff position.
C: Activate AutoPilot
... you know, kind of "seeing-eye-dog" step-by-step.
Q1: Do I activate TOGA while on the groung before take-off?
If not, when?
Q2: After successful activation of TOGA, do I ever need to intervene manually?
Q3: Should I expect it to automatically control the throttle completely through landing?
Q4: Does Auto Pilot need to be on?
I guess I'm not sure when it's actually "doing it's thing".
See if these help.
Take-off/Go Around (TO/GA) is an autopilot/autothrottle setting activating take-off or go-around thrust. Depending upon aircraft type, it may be activated by depressing a switch or by manually moving the thrust levers to the appropriate position.
That's it ! ! !
😎It took a few tries but what you wanted finally sunk into my head.
