Hi Darren, With the 757 the autoland feature is automatic, when all the aircraft systems are functional you will get a land 3 message between 1800ft and 1500ft on the approach when the APR mode is armed. This is accurate to the real 757. Cheers Steve

Please, how then correctly make Missed Approach? Let us say how correctly deactivate Autoland?

Hi There is an area beside the auto throttle button on the PSS model that when you right click should are the auto throttle. It seems there is a fault at the moment and all that happenes is that it take the auto throttle out of speed mode. I will drop Steven a email regarding this. In the real aircraft there is a switch on each the throttle for pilot or FO activation of the GA mode both switches can be seen on the PSS mode but are not functional. Steve

Thanks to John Rooum for pointing out my error here. To activate the "Go Around" right click on the EPR button and the approach will be discontinued. I hang my head in shame. The paint fumes from a week of decorating have pickled what was left of my brain, but I do have sufficient brownie points to get airborne again, as long as I don't have to "Go Around"Steve
