Hello,I am willig to autoland with PMDG 737 and 747 without programming the FMC.... Once I enter the NAV1 frequency and the course heading of the runway, I am pressing the APP button once I have the runway in sight (around 2000ft), then once the aircraft intercept the runway scope, it starts heading in the right direction but won't always descent and land by itself.... the APP often switch off by itself..... If anyone could give the proper procedure ...Thank you so much,Cassis

Well, for the 737 the procedure is the one you know with the exception that I also tune NAV2 and prime AP2 right after "APP" button, otherwise you won't get the "FLARE" and you'll crash on the tarmac. Be careful to be at the right speed when intercepting the glideslope...but if there is somehting true in this world is the fact that the PMDG autolands perfectly. For the 747 is another story. You MUST use the FMC otherwise she will only follow the runway heading but nothing else.Hope this helps.Lorenzo

hi Cassis, i feel reading between the lines of your post that you are maybe a bit ahead of yourself in relation to autoland, could i suggest you go to the website www.utem.com and on the opening page you will see downloads. click on this an the opening page has free downloads. scroll down to "ils cat 111B" and download to desktop and you will get a pdf on the subject of autoland. the site is worth a browse. best of luck. richard welsh.
