Thanks for bringing that mission to my attention. :)I just completed it without any issues other than their altimeter readout being off (stated 28.86, real value 29.86). The mission description states that the mission has three different endings, so it could be a glitch with the path you got.I can't say I particularly enjoyed the surprise thrown in during the landing in the ending I got, but at least I managed to recover and perform a safe landing. I also learned something useful from the experience, which I definitely appreciate...As long as you pay close attention to the instructions there shouldn't be any problems I think.

Well the last thing that happens is my co-pilot said "descend to 4000 ft and speed 180". I've looked through the sound folder and it mentions a engine failure. Did you still continue on the GPS course?

If you didn't get the engine failure you didn't get the path I did. The instructions were to continue the flight as filed after notifying ATC about the situation.There should have been two heading changes somewhere around there. The first to 220 and the second to 270 if I remember right. After the last one I switched the autopilot to approach mode and prepared for landing.

In my path, the airport that I was heading to got closed and I was diverted to another one.

Yes, I flew according to the original flightplan. I definitely understand why that airport was closed though...

I presume it was the weather and did you get a reward @ the end?

Yes, the visibility went from "I have the runway, we can land visually" to "who turned off the lights?!" in a heartbeat. Very disorienting but it's a lesson well taught.I got down in one piece though and did indeed receive the reward after parking.

I get to the spot where the co-pilot tell you "Now tune in the ILS for RWY 26 it's 111.10 and the course is 255. Got it? Frequency is 111.10 and course 255. And don't forget to switch from GPS/FMS to NAV mode." I set NAV1 to 111.10 and switch GPS to NAV mode but the plane just keeps flying and does not turn I don't know how to set the ILS can anyone tell me how to do it?

Keep the autopilot in NAV hold mode and set the ILS frequency on NAV1. Now turn off NAV hold and switch the NAV/GPS selector to NAV. Use the course knob to set the course to the ILS course from the airport data. Finally return the NAV/GPS selector to GPS and turn NAV hold back on.When ATC starts vectoring you around, switch NAV/GPS to NAV, change NAV hold to HDG hold. When you're on on the last leg heading for the intercept you press the APP hold button and continue with the landing preparations.Note how the HDG and then the ALT lights go out as you intercept the localizer and glideslope.Don't forget to turn off the autothrottle and autopilot on the right altitude or you'll make a mess on the runway...

The CRS knob in the middle of the AP panel. The course readout is only shown to the left on the primary MFD when the NAV/GPS switch is set to NAV which is the reason for the switching during ILS setup.

I downloaded this mission from Aerosoft, started it and sat on the apron waiting for the co-pilot to say something, anything. Nothing. Am I supposed to move the sound files that came with into the main fsx default sound folder?Ernest

I think this one came with an installer, so it should have put the files in the right place. The sound files should be in a folder inside the mission folder, no don't move them.Gunner
