How to tell plane to slow to and maintain Vapp.

Question

So basically, I'm on an ILS, fully intercepted but the commanded FMS speed is way too high and I would like to slow down to the calculated/inserted Vapp. How do I do this using the FMS and not just selecting the speed on the FGCP.

Do you have landing flaps config set, what do you mean way to high? If so I don't see what is the problem because the FMS will set the correct speed for the landing(In fact for all phases of flight, this is not a Boeing😄). I never use the speed select on the auto-throttle panel on this plane and on the MD11(PMDG)but if, for example, if control ask you a specific speed you can select it on the glareshield!
