ILS issue returned

Recommended Posts

I have posted this issue before and didn't get an answer from PSS Support.Please look at the pic below.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130839.jpgAs you can see, the ILS glideslope bar shows the aircraft well below glidepath, whilst the VASI/PAPI show "on glidepath".Even the FD bars show on course and on glidepath, and they are supposed to follow the ILS needles.The aircraft is in autoland mode, wind 0/0.This happens at every airport with PSS models.Every other aircraft in my inventory, shows the glideslope bar correctly.Is there a config file where I can tune up the glideslope bar?All I need is for it go down 1,5 dots.Does this happen to anyone else?Thanks in advance for any help.Jo

John,This is true for any airport. No matter whether I have an add on or not. The one in the picture is actually LPPT ILS Rwy21.What makes the ILS needles move in PSS Airbus? Where does it get the info from?As you can see, the FD bars are perfectly aligned, the VASI/PAPI show on glidepath.What puzles me is that this doesn't happen with any other model, FS or add on.Please helpJo

LarezThe problem you have is it with PSS A320 only, or other aircraft in your inventory?Jo

AllIt is obvious to me by now, that no one knows how to tackle this issue.I am convinced that it is a Gauge (PFD) issue within PSS panel.Is there an editor that will allow me to look into the PSS-a320.gau and eventually edit it?If not, can I unistall PSS aircraft and reinstall them using the same (ABPro_Base_Setup.exe and A340Pro_Base_Setup.exe) installation files I dowloaded from PSS?Jo

I also have same problem on A320 and A330/A340 at every airport been so since first install,another problem I have and can not resolve is all my PSS Airbuses land to one side of runnway never on centre line this is at every airport, all my other aircraft land centre line.I would like to get these isues sorted if anyone has the answerRegards and thanksSpike

yep, thats the way she is i guess...happens to me too...but I really dont mind having the aircraft a bit below the glideslope...lands perfectly for me.

I'll have a look at the problem tonight, I've never spent any time on it. Perhaps a tweak of the .air file might be all that is required (although I suspect it is more likely something in the coding in the panel).Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training CaptainBritish Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

MaestroI do mind, only because if I want to manually land the aircraft in IMC conditions (low vertical and horizontal visibility), I will have to rely on the ILS solely. Therefore I'll land short and may hit the RWY well before the precision approach touchdown point (some 1000' after landing threshold).Jo

It might be line 1199 (autopilot/secondary aerodynamics) in the airfile and inside that possibly line 43 "GS lock gain/offset" or maybe line 46 "GS Rate FB". I have never changed either of those entries and am not a flight dynamics expert so this will be trial and error. I'll let you know the results.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

RobIs there an editor for the .air file?If there is, I can always back up my current .air and tweek a test.air file.Jo

RobI hate doing this but I just did a fresh installation of FS9+9.1 (no scenery add-ons) and the PSS320/340 and still have the same issue.ILS glideslope does not coincide with VASI/PAPI.I'm just asking from whom may know how the "thing" was programmed, what "drives" the glideslope bar up and down.It's a pitty, because PMDG 737NGs don't do it, LevelD 767 doesn

Joao, you're not going to get a straightforward answer to this. There is an issue in the relationship between the panel and FS9 itself. As you may know, the panel was originally developed for FS2002 and has been patched for FS9. This is unlike the LDS767 and the PMDG aircraft which were written from the grtound up for FS9. I don't have access to the coding in the panel and that information is not in the public domain. That was why I thought I'd see if I could make an adjustment in the air file to help with the problem (which I too experience although not badly). Unfortunately since I said that work pressures and the sale of our house have meant I just haven't had time to do any tweaking and testing. I will look at this as soon as I possibly can.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

Hi folks,I use the PSS A320 as well in fs9 (with the patch) and I was really worried about that ILS problem. Sometimes, it worked perfectly - I pushed LOC and APPR and I could perform a CAT III Approach, but sometimes I have the same problems like you.My personal solution; Don't wait too long on the gate WITHOUT the APU running or EXT PWR attached and start the aircraft according checklists (NOT Ctrl+E)! Often I do not use the APPR-Mode - descend the aircraft with around 1800fpm, 1500fpm and managed speed to the intercept-altitude and then switch on LOC/APPR, I correct and adjust the speed manually.But I have to admit, that it is somehow strange, I start FS9, fly a leg and the ILS does not work. One hour later, nothing changed in my installation, the same situation - and everything is ok! Hope that helps a bit.
