Hi,

I can't seem to find a good explanation on this. When I arm the LOC, FAC comes up on the PFD  instead of LOC. I've read through the manual but there is no explanation that I could find. as a result, the aircraft descends to 2000 ft then levels of, so no Autoland. Maybe because I armed it too soon?

I know on the 744, you can't arm the LOC till you are within range. 

 

Ok. I changed the option to correct loc crs to sim to ON and the glide slope was captured and I just did a Land 3 autoland. Not sure is that was the issue or if I was just engaging the LOC too early.

You pushed it to early that’s why FAC is shown. Final approach course.

As Koen mentioned, this is the case.

Basically, if the plane isn't receiving a signal, and you ask for it to get you home, it'll get you home by essentially creating the approach course with what it has right now (loaded approach data).
