MD11-Autoland: Approach only?

Recommended Posts

Guest Susan27

Hi,just did some ILS-autolandings at Istanbul, Turkey (LTBA) with A/P in Appr/Land mode. Suddenly (I think below 1000ft AGL) the display at PFD switched to "Appr only"...and below DH the A/P disengaged and I had to perform flare etc. manually...I wonder because before this...I did some ILS autolands at Dalaman, Turkey) LTBS with the same MD11-configuration...and Dual-Autoland (so including flare phase etc.) was no problem at all...So my question is: Does someone know why at one scenario dual-autoland is possible and at others (like LTBA in my case) only "Appr only" is possible...? Or asked the other way: What do I have to do (change in configuration at the MD11) to perform Dual-Lands every time...at all ILS-equipped apts/RWYs...?Thanks very much! :)

>So my question is: Does someone know why at one scenario>dual-autoland is possible and at others (like LTBA in my case)>only "Appr only" is possible...?Your SCENERY must have the ILS, GS, in it or else you can't do a full autoland to the best of my knowledge.Default FSX LEMD, the new runways (the northernmost ones, can't remember designators) don't have the ILS in them. Try flying THOSE approaches using the MD-11. You'll get the 100 foot AGL disconnect every time.I have now added them in my sim but you get my point.RhettFS box: E8500 (@ 3.80 ghz), AC Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64ASX Client: AMD 3700+ (@ 2.6 ghz), 7800GT
