Flightbeam KSFO v2 landing problem

Recommended Posts

Whenever I try and land on the 28s at SFO, the plane seems to hit an invisible mesh of some sort and instantly is on the ground, like when you hit the seawall. I'm well above it, and have 2 whites and 2 reds on the PAPISs, any idea what is causing this?

Disregard, found the solution. Turned the terrain LOD up to max from ultra.

I literally just had the same problem and was about to post! Thanks so much for saving me the trouble. :)

My issue is I️ can only land on 28L when doing an ils.  The ILS on 28R takes me right of the taxiway.

I’ve also hear another solution is to decrease the mesh setting to 18m, but 10 or 5 seems to work for some.

Do you have any other SFO afcad installed? If so, remove it. Also, if that doesn’t solve it, try reinstalling the scenery.

No afcad.  I️ will do a reinstall

I spoke too soon. My terrain LOD was already ultra. Lowering the mesh resolution from max (1m) to 5m did the trick, though.

Yeah. Me too. Being the Cat III approach, it's a bit inconvenient.

Have you tried any of the proposed solutions above?

Are you flying an Air Canada Airbus by chance?:tongue:

Probably not, because one actually landed on the runway, albeit without permission:laugh:

Make sure you go through the troubleshooting section in the Flightbeam manager, there are a number of files (ORBX related I think from memory) which need to be deactivated.  Not sure if this will fix your exact issue but it's worth doing anything to reduce any conflicts.

I only saw one and that as a vector file. Did nothing to help, I recall.

I count three KSFO Orbx files turned off in my configuration.  Be sure you are looking the the FTX NA NCA scenery folder.

As mentioned by previous users, be sure there are no conflicting AFCADs that conflict with KSFO (there are quite a few). 
With no conflicting AFCADs, ILS 28L is spot on with the correct data: NAV 111.7 CRS: 284 (IGWQ)

To find conflicting AFCADs (the bane of airport developer's existence): 

- First try the Flightbeam Manager's troubleshooter to find obvious ones. 

- Search your sim folder for duplicates (search for ksfo* bgl files)

- If none of those solutions work, use the Scenery Library to temporarily disable scenery addons to see which is causing the issue.

Thanks for the suggestion, Flightbeam.

I did a search and found a number of KSFO BGL files. All belonging to Flightbeam except one: KSFOHD_ALT.bgl

I'll try renaming this and report back.

Edit...

I did a quick flight with a stock aircraft at KSFO. It seems to be working correctly now. I'll try again later with a 'real' aircraft.

Thanks again for your suggestion. I would have never figured this out on my own.
