What is the difference between Autopilot VOR mode and ILS mode?

Recommended Posts

????  

 

Note, NOT ILS Approach mode, that has a noticeable difference of course in that it acquires the glide slope.

 

This is on the Captain Sim B-52 if it matters.

I'm not sure of your question...

 

There's typically a NAV or VOR/LOC switch which will hold your current track (if using GNSS) or course if flying a radial off a VOR.

 

APR mode is more sensitive and only for ILS approaches.

Typically, this would be a difference in sensitivity - the VOR mode would allow bigger deviations before correcting..

Yep but for FSX autopilots it's the same haha - both usually suck at intercepts.
