weird FMS behaviour

Recommended Posts

Now I could be doing something wrong, if so I can't work out what. I've been following some airline2sim tutorials and did the VOR today a few times as I was trying to work out why the FMS would delete my flight plan when very close to SAM VOR.

Flightplan is as follows: EGKK - EGHI (VOR DME rwy02)

Depart RWY 8R, SID SAM3Z, fly to SAM VOR then turn left to follow outbound radial 192 for 8nm, then right turn to intercept inbound SAM 030 Radial for RWY02.

Now everything goes to plan until I'm about to reach SAM VOR. It is at this point that my flight plan changes and the flight plan switches to go around waypoints. I look at NAV page and my FR becomes "RW02", TO becomes "(3000ft)" and Nx becomes "manual". My flight plan disappears. I need to reprogram the FR, TO and Nx for the flight plan to reappear. So it looks as though the FMS thinks as I'm about to approach SAM VOR that I'm doing a go around, when I'm not, I'm in the process of doing my final stages of the approach.

I don't know why it does this, this surely cant be normal.

Disregard it appears I was flying the approach wrong by leaving it in NAV mode whilst approaching SAM VOR.
