HiNo it is DME equiped. I used to fly the approach in real life with students.

That's FS's problem then - the NG's nav radios tune to the FS scenery - nothing in the NG could cause it to suddenly not have DME...

"When I fly an ILS for RWY 07 I dont get a DME readout.The frequency is correctly tuned. And I have the correct NAV selected."If you have both Navs tuned to the ILS frequency, Goose, then I don't see how you could get a DME readout. Rwy 07 doesn't have an ILSDME. I checked the latest airline charts today... and also tuned into the ILS (07) on two different aircraft. There is no ILSDME (ie. a DME co-located with the ILS).Approaches made using ILS and DME "SY" (Sydney VOR) will probably require you to tune into ILS 07 (109.9Mhz) with one nav receiver and Sydney VOR (112.10 MHz) with the other Nav receiver.Make sense?Cheers.Ian.P.S. Only Rwy 25, 34R and 16L have ILSDME's.
