Localizer capture and descent

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I recently bought the 24 and am having problems with localizer capture and descent.

 

I'm going from KSFO to KSTS with the approach of ILS 32 with the transition of SAU loaded in the GPS. ILS freq set tp 109.30.

 

GPS/NAV  switch set to GPS.

 

The 24 does find the localize, that is. the little G/S triangle appears and as I et closer, it drops but the aircraft does not descend.

 

I know I'm doing some thing wrong, but don't know what.

 

Thanks,

Mark

 

PS Love the jet!

Already has been answered in the FSX forum, but...

  1. NAV1 frequency set for the correct localizer or VOR
  2. NAV/GPS switch must be in NAV mode for localizer/glideslope intercept
  3. APP mode must be armed for localizer/glideslope intercept
  4. Altitude must be below glideslope to capture glideslope
  5. Speed must be Vref + 10

Success! Apparently excessive speed was the issue.

 

Thanks for the help.
