Scott,If you are doing an ILS appoach, the normal angle to intercept to localizer is 30 degrees to the runway heading. If you have programmed your MCDU correctly the ILS will be in there. You do not have to input that frequency. You will have to press the localizer button when the localizer becomes active on your apporach. The Bus holds the ILS localizer and glide slope beautifully for me.Dan Ward

...and you should also check your approach speed.If you are too fast it's likely that you'll miss the localizer capture.Stefano
