Procedure turns not working properly

Recommended Posts

Hey I have a question about the FMS concerning procedure turns in the 737NGX. Upon shooting a full approach with the procedure turn (HOLD) the airplane should be entering the procedure turn (hold) in a teardrop, but it's actually flying it backwards. The entry is right turns and since i'm coming from the opposite direction it should be doing a teardrop then established inbound it exits the hold and shoots the approach. You actually can shoot either a parallel or Teardrop but the teardrop makes more sense. The airplane is literally flying the hold backwards and never establishing itself on the approach.

 

NOW, i'm sure i'm doing something wrong here, the FMS I use at work is simple...load the full approach, go to the IAF and the AFCS flys it to a T. Gotta be something i'm doing wrong or a setting somewhere. Any ideas?

I get exactly the same, have you found a solution? Approach into EDDW plate and screen show a left turn, PMDG NGX does a right turn away from the ILS???

have you tried inputting the approach and hold yourself rather than selecting it from the database? ive found sometimes that fixes the issue of the NGX flying holds incorrectly
