1.) Do you have the Yaw Damper turned on?2.) Do you have the AP dial/switches selected appropriately? HDG for, umm.. heading, etc. Note that you will need to turn the AP dial to "AUX NAV" if you want the AP to follow the FS GPS.Hope this helps. Magnificent product.

Skyking,The Dreamfleet/Flight 1 Boeing 727 is one of the jewels of FS9. Try flying it with the flight director. The flight director is intended to allow you to manually fly the aircraft. That is, hands on yoke, AP is not engauged, you follow the commands with manual inputs.Try it, its a great experience. You can use the flight director from wheels up to wheels down. You will find the information about the Collins Flight Director on page 13-7.Tom

I love flying the old big iron... but it is just too much of a handful with not only flying her, but doing the job of a co-pilot and fe all at once.

I agree with Al. I really love to fly the 727 but it has to be when I have alot of time to sit and start it from cold and dark to flying and then landing. It is very satisfying when I can devote the time. Sometimes it is a bit much and I cant get the time to sit and fly when I am handling so many of the tasks needed for the older aircraft. Same with the RFP 747.

it's a matter of practice. Do it a couple of times and you'll be able to get it running in a couple of minutes - no nuclear science there.On the other hand it will grant you with the satisfaction of actually flying the thing...with all those VNAV LNAV and other automation features (that are great in real life) that do most of the job for you - I can't escape the feeling that FS is turned into a TS - Taxi Simulator.For all the rest is done by the computer within the computer....

Yes, practice and you can do the job of 3 people. But what we mean is, doing it all at once is nerve wracking and makes it difficult to actually enjoy flying the airplane.

Yes, but sometimes you just need to clean out your head, redefine your approach, catch a breath, and use the pause key. Attempting to land any payware jet is difficult, there is no shame in hitting the pause key to get reorganized.Tom
