Same old approach problem

Recommended Posts

HelloI am still having the ILS approach problem, where everything is fine until about 6 miles out - aircraft is descending nicely with the glide slope - airspeed is about 160 knots - all of sudden the plane stops following the glide slope, the nose rises and I am forced to disable A/P and land the plane myself. Except, when I attempt to land manually the plane starts flying "sideways" and the landing is an embarrassment.I am using ActiveSky 2004, but have the wake turbulance disabled - I thought this may be part of my problem.Any ideas or similar experiences???Thank you.

It is stated that one should not use add-on weather with this aircraft, if you choose ot still use it you will have some issues. This is a side effect and one reason why this was stated in the readme. With the wind shitfs the A/P is getting thrown conflicting winds which I assume is srewing up the IAS causing the Alpha protection ot kick in (it thinks you are stalling)..[h4]Best Wishes,Randy J.

Randy,Ah OK. I get it now ;) I was thinking it was a mis-configured airplane. I had no idea that AS was having this kind of issue with the NG.

Hi RandyAre you saying that no add-on weather can be used with the PMDG 737?

Hi Kevin,Let me chip in here for a moment. There seems to be an issue with wind directions and FS9 and FSUIPC when controlled from an external source. I know that Damian (author of AS2004) and Pete (author of FSUIPC)are looking into this as we speak. We will hopefully see a solution to this problem soon. I've been experiencing the same problems with wind shifts on approach you are reporting and have reported them to both PMDG and HiFiSim. Regards,
