  13. Press Activate button then Close Route Manager.
  14. You may close Map or keep it open with Transparent to check course.

  32. Rotate when you reach VR.
  33. Keep pitch angle 15deg then gear up when V/S ind plus.
  34. Wait until gear up, then adjust pitch trim to maintain F/D pitch bar center.
  35. Flap up according to the speed.
  36. Once ship stable without any force apply to control, then press AP.
  37. Turn on the cabin light.
  38. Now ship follows LNAV course and climb to cruise altitude by VNAV.
