737 Vor loc & APP

Recommended Posts

Guest dougjc

I'm having trouble getting my ILS landing to work properly. Never had a problem with the freeware 737's, I would just establish on the localizer and the rest was easy. One thing I notice is that on those other planes it would lock my steering, even if I tried to turn I was held in place. On the 737NG that doesnt seem to be the case. A couple procedure questions;do I hit VOR LOC just prior to aligning on the localizer?Do I then hit APP and activate cmd B? If I don't want to auto-land, can I just use cmd A? Should the APP light always be lit or does it go out at some point?Doug

Activating LOC just before establish is fine, I find that provided my intercept heading is not too sharp then I can switch it on a bit earlier. One you've captured the Localiser you can activate APP. As you say, activating CMD B will put it into autoland, if you don't want to autoland then just leave CMD A activated, it'll follow the LOC and Glide most of the way down til you take over. Once everything is nicely captured and you're on the loc/glide then APP does go out yes.
