There will be an improved Afcad file in the next update.

Then even an autolanding can be done without any issues...

The issue is can you land the aircraft. Turn the autopilot of much earlier (1000ft ra) and practise. You have little excuse as with your amazing rig you are flying the same aircraft all the time.  :smile:

 

If it makes you feel better you are not on your own. In another Flytampa eham post on this page , Rob did the opposite and landed halfway down the runway!

 

Methinks more flying less scenery all round.  :Cuppa:

I am In the beta team for FT EHAM .

When testing the ILS I normally let the aircraft do an autolanding.

That is the only way to see if there are errors.

 

At this moment with the current AFCAD files that does not work correctly.

For the update they will be redone completely.

 

We have a very passioned beta team and are constantly testing and looking for improvements.

If they had implemented all features and objects we asked it would have ended as unflayable.

 

Btw : landing manually from 1000 ft is no problem . Its all in the pilots wrist , I mean pilots hand...LOL

Does your aircraft auto land well?

When you disconnected the autopilot (which you should do on your yoke) The nose dropped.... almost sharply (and you were not quick enough to catch it).

 

This suggests to me your aircraft FDE needs work ...or perhaps your IAS was too high.

The AP is disconnected on the MCP because I do not the CPFlight ProVersion which automatically flips the AT switch on the MCP.

 

Perhaps in the future when I have saved some cash....

Haha, a case for the virtual ILT.

 

Findings:

1. Beta testings should have found that AFCAD is not airworthy

2. Pilot should have done a go around.

3. Aircraft have serious shortcommings on autoflight.

 

Recommendations:

Pilot should try farm simulator.

 

lololol...

I cannot think of one addon where the glideslope matched the papi/vasi and touchdown zone perfectly.

 

As this is often neglected I always fix it myself. The easiest way is just dial in the ILS and slew the aircraft to the correct height and distance matching the papa/vasi (which are normally in the correct position but can be out too)

 

So on approach the order of reference before touch down is ILS, Papi/vasi, touchdown zone.

Will it have crosswind runways and uptodate approaches?

Crosswind runways are already included in the current Afcad files.

We are also testing improved versions of the Afcad files.

Now the touchdown zone is correctly used ; with or without autolanding...

Cool ....and can one fly a Rwy 18R approach, EELDE 1A STAR, ARTIP 2C transition with FSATC as I can in FS9?

 

(check it out in my next vid)

Thanks for the ideas Gerard
