Help, Having Problems With Autoland

Recommended Posts

With the 744 on approach when locked into the localizer and then I press Approach button on autopilot to lock into glideslope once its engaged, which causes all three autopilot commands to light for autoland, the EICAS display shows that the thrust mode annuciation has gone from CRZ to G/A. Then when the plane is close to minimums the thrust increases dramatically as if it wants to perform a go around. I haven't pressed any of the TO/GA buttons to engage this. This doesn't seem right that the thrust mode should change to go around. What am I doing wrong? I can't really find an answer in the manual.Also my exterior sounds of the aircraft flying are muffled. I am using Active Sky V Enhanced. Could this be causing the muffled exterior sound? My interior cockpit sounds appear to be fine.I would appreciate any help with this. These appear to be the only problems I am having with this fine model at this time. Thanks!

Hello, please take moment to read the forum guidlines pertaining to signing one's name to their posts, thanks very much.the EICAS display shows that the thrust mode annuciation has gone from CRZ to G/A. Then when the plane is close to minimums the thrust increases dramatically as if it wants to perform a go around. I haven't pressed any of the TO/GA buttons to engage this. This doesn't seem right that the thrust mode should change to go around. You did not say whether the plane performed an autoland or not? The thrust status correct changes to G/A in that situation. Also, with gear down and approach flaps I gather the thrust req is alot more than other phases other than TO or GA.. [h4]Randy J.
