Mick!Many concomitant conditions could be affecting your AP. Make sure you have initialised your FMC fully, and correctly. Can you give us more details on what you are attempting to do with AP? (Using LNAV, VNAV, HDG SEL, etc..?)Tom

Mick,In case you are experiencing problems with A/P disengaging when using add-on weather programs like Active Sky or even FS2004 default weather, this is normal due to abrupt wind changes modeled in FS. The only way to fix or reduce the frequency of A/P disegagements is to use FSUIPC wind smoothing and Active Sky Wind smoothing functions.This happens particularly in accelerated simulation modes but some people have reported it even with real-time 1X simulation rates too.John
