Its quite easy. Go to the menu 1 page on the UFC and click next to A/P NAV (or GT or TCN depending on what mode you are in). Enter the altitude you want it to hold and then click the A/P button on the lower left of the key pad(this is the A/P master). Then just click next to the altitude hold to activate altitude hold and click STR-NAV/GT/TCN to activate nav/heading/course hold. When a axis on the AP is active you will see a little star next to the axis. To change NAV/GT/TCN modes you just click on the respective button on the HSI page of a MFD.

Please read the manual before posting. You will learn quicker than if I act as your instructor.

No speed hold support needed anyway. It is quite easy to maintain speed by hand. I do it anyway....

Especially with the TH Warthog Throttle! (which I use...) I can hold any speed to within a knot - perfect for formation flying!
