Flight Planning and flight plan loading

  1. How can I plan my flight, starting from a stand instead of a runway? I would like to be able to start my flight from cold & dark (A32NX).

  2. Is load/save the only option to upload my Navigraph flight plan (.pln) into the MCDU? Or would I also be able to do it through an init request (I tried doing this through MCDU Menu>ATSU>AOC>init>init data… unsuccessfully).
