Flight1 ATR ILS approach

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,I'm quite new to the ATR. I have a question regarding how to perform an ILS approach. Normally you have to tune the NAV1 and NAV2 receiver with the respective frequency of the runway.Does the ATR show me the data within the FMC or do I have to obtain them from another source, so to speak charts? I couldn't find it just yet.Thanks in advance.Regards,

You will have to source it elsewhere like a chart :(If you look at the map mode of fs9 and click on the airport it wil list the freq and runay crs values there as well!!

........and nav 1 radio is all that is required.Generally tuning the ils to both nav radios is for autoland procedure.You cant do that in the ATRPeter

Just an observation but I have always noted with the ATR that it doesnt correct for crosswind too well on a coupled ILS approach. Any crosswind component of 10 kts or more I will handfly it. Otherwise, im not lined up to the runway.
