Approach Brief question

Recommended Posts

At this stage I'm still at the stage where I use an ATC guided ILS vector approach.Not very familiar with SID's and STAR's, does FSX even have knowledge of these? And how would you request such an approach in a way that it doesn't conflict with ATC?Coz once I ignored ATC to do my own thing and ended up landing with another 747 taking off.If you can do these approaches in FSX I would love to find out how but I guess that's not an FS2crew question.But if the above is yes, how would I setup the approach brief.What would I put in IAP? As it only seems to have approaches for certain airports?If I want it to be the ATC ILS vector one I leave it on IAP: GEN ILS ?Flaps are 30, is there ever a reason to have this different?

Hi,The briefs on the Approach Brief page are purely audio. There is no interaction with the default FSX ATC system.If a custom brief is not available for your airport, just select a Generic brief. It's important that you at least play a STAR brief because that's what puts FS2Crew into Descent Mode.The FS ATC system is fairly crude; it doesn't handle SIDs and STARs and its ability to separate planes is spotty at best.I might suggest Radar Contact if you want a better ATC system. Or VATSIM or IVAO.Flaps 30: At the airline I modeled, I seem to recall they always use Flaps 30 for landing. I'll let Cowpatz correct me if I'm wrong.Cheers,Bryan
