VOR/LOC versus APP

Recommended Posts

Guest NZPPL

Greetings I am a new PMDG user and new to this forum so If I make any errors please be tolerant.I fly PMDG 737-600 & 700 in FS2002. During One and Two Channel APP approaches once the glidescope is captured and the APP light is out the VOR/LOC illuminates and I lose the ILS decent profile unless I can quickly recapture the ILS with APP before the AC flies out of ILS capture range.This happens about 3 or 4 times on a ILS approach from about 3,000 ftGrateful for any helpNZPPLJohn Hislop

hi Johnyou really should capture the localiser first, then the glidescopeso before intercept you should press the LOC button which will illuminate yellow, then after the localiser is captured and the plane begins its intercept, you should press APP, by this time you should see the red dot coming down and then once the plane comes down with altitude from APP, you should press the second CMD button for full autoland,works perfect for me.

Hi John,Welcome aboard. I see with interest you're a fellow kiwi. Hurricane's supporter by any chance???I've been doing this a while, though with three kids don't have the time to become technically proficient with the PMDG product.Hope it all goes well.Cheers, from Karori.

Hi Clayton,I only ever click the 'APP'. Once the ILS capture is live, I hear the 'Ding-Dong' sound and Glide Slope is automatically locked after.Am I doing something wrong, as I enjoy perfect landings?Dave T. .........On the lovely warm Devon Riviera and active 'FlightSim User's Group' member at http://www.flightsimgrpuk.free-online.co.uk/

no thats right, the ILS capture - thick red bar - should come alive, the ac should begin to intercept then press the APP button,thats what i do.

Are you at the right speed, flap configuration and able to keep on the descent path without overspeeding?Not sure if this is any use but the only time I've had trouble with auto lands and descents is when I've had overspeed disconnects.Glen
