Flight Director doesn't disappear on landing

Recommended Posts

Performing an ILS approach with two FD on ( master side captain) and both NAV on ILS frequency, at 50 FT RA the bars of FD doesn't disappear and remain on PFD on ground. In autoland instead they disappear at 50 Ft without  problem. 

I had version SP 1C only 800/900 , FSX + UTEX+ FEX and FSUIPC registeresd ( but the axis are form FSX and NOT by FSUIPC)

I've never heard of the FD's disappearing on their own. I know for a fact that they remain on until I flip off the switches. 

 

 

And yeah, barking at people isn't exactly going to elicit help.

Regardless of Brembo's lack of social skills, he correct, the FD's should retract (disappear) at around 50' RA. If they don't then it is a small bugette.

...or maybe an airline specific option...i.e. also in the fised base training  B738 sim where I go every now and then it doesn't disappear...

I don't think so, Boeing describe the FDs as not having any flare capability, which is why they retract.

Yes problably Fail Operational planes have to mantain FD ie also 'cause you could also have a late go around when the main gear have already touched the rwy...

Good thinking, but the FDs pop-up when you press toga, even with the FD's switched off (except of take-off).

 

BTW, fail operational has no bearing on late go-around capability, the same applies for fail passive, CAT1, non-precision, visual, etc.

The bars don't disappear with the Fail Operational option - this is all detailed in the FCTM and FCOM2.

Thanks Ryan, that's clarified it. The topic stater seems to be saying that they remain with a single channel approach, he could do with clarifying that.

I tried with the option "fail pass" and i't the same! 2 nav on ILS freq, both FD on, AP disengage.. the light APP in the MCP disappears, the FD left remain MASTER the right FD not in master, and at 50 AGL the bars doesn't disappear and remains on ground till I swich them off

In IAN approach the FD disappear but not in an ILS Approach. This is a real bug, incredible that many users had not notice this issue.

Truth be told I just don't look at the PFD at that point.

I'll have to check on my next trip to be sure but I'm pretty certain the FD bars do disappear at 50' RA, at least on a single autopilot approach.  We don't do dual autopilot approaches so I couldn't tell you if they do or not in that case.
