ILS Final Approach problem fo b737-400... need some help!

Recommended Posts

Guys,During final approach with both AP an AT engaged. APPR mode activated.Approach speed: AT eagged to set the speed at 122 IAS/flap 40/gear down and with APPR mode engaged.I'm taking about a perfect ILS/GS profile here towards the rumway!)As a normal practice, at 300 feet above runway, I first disengaged AT and the follow by APPR mode.The PROBLEM: The moment the APPR mode disengaged, my B73-400 ptich up violently and stalled the aircraft which can't be recovered and crashed onto the runway.The QUESTION is: Why is that in fs2k4, disengaged APPR mode in such stage could resulted the aircraft to lose control? Whereas in fs2k2, disengaging the APPR mode at the same stage, the aircraft does not ptich up and stall, in fact,it glides smoothly towards the runway allowing me to flare my aircraft and finally touch down perfectly!Any expect could explain to me what is the problem with fs2k4 or the difference compared to fs2k2 when disengaging APPR mode to land the b737-400 manually as practiced in fs2k2?I really hope to gey your input.Thank you in advance for your kind attention and help!Kevin@sg

I believe that if you want to land manually, you will have to disengage both A/T, Autopilot A and B and F/D, otherwise you will not be able to properly land the aircraft manually.At least, disengaging approach mode only is not enough. You will have to disengage the entire autopilot system.I am not an expert, though!Nico
