Skewy ILS: - me, FS9 or PMDG??

Recommended Posts

Hello Captains,I have tried searching for a resolution to this before posting, but have not found any - so if it is due to my "habits" please enlighten me.On approach to various default scenery airports in FS9 (this is OOMS - Muscat, but it happened for HTDA and HTKJ too), for some reason the plane never really aligns itself perfectly on approach. This approach example began 25nm out, and stayed to the left of the runway as shown here all the way in. It DOES NOT happen on all approaches it must be said, but if anyone has a solution I would love to hear it.I have tried ensuring speed is correct and I always intercept the ILS at approach speed as defined by the FMC and just under the glide slope to ensure a proper capture when I enable the APP mode.Again - the last time this didn't happen was because I actually lined the plane up with the runway at 25nm out, then applied the APP mode, but I thought that this feature specifically is designed to do that for me? :-hahAny ideas/suggestions welcome.cheers,Ronniehttp://ronnie.vandelaak.com/ils.jpghttp://ronnie.vandelaak.com/baw644.gif

Hi there,I realy love your Cockpit shot but i can't help you...I never had any problems with aligning onto the RWY.But I see you have the SPD bug set at the VREF speed, normaly you have to approach at VREF +5 KTs. But for the rest everything looks ok to me: FLAPS25 landing, both APs engaged...Ramon

Thanks for the tip Ramon - I will take VREF+5 into consideration. I have a feeling no one will have an idea about this problem - so i will see what happens with the next few approaches. If I resolve it I will post the answer for future reference :-)cheers againRonniehttp://ronnie.vandelaak.com/baw644.gif
