ILS approach via Simbrief.

Recommended Posts

I recently installed the Aerosoft CJR.  In following the simbrief route and trying to capture the ILS/  glidescope, it does nothing. Even when nav1 has correct frequency, loc1 is selected, and the correct altitude is being flown?

And you are hitting the approach button? You didn’t mention it, so I thought we could begin there.  For the record, I have yet to have a failed capture.

Yes. Approach is selected.  The plane is in line with airport runway but for some reason never catches the glidescope.  I’ve double checked approach altitudes etc. 

now, if I use the info from airnav.com and fly the approach ways they list, it always works.  
 

obviosly missing something

I’m stumped.  I import the Simbrief plans making alterations as desired, and fixing discontinuities, otherwise everything just seems to work. After the que comes up to turn the nav source to localizer, I do so, hit approach and eventually the glide slope is captured and down we go.

Are you able to fly ILS approaches with other aircraft? Do you have Navigraph FMS data installed for the CRJ and/or Navigraph navdata installed in MSFS?

Yes, I have no problem with other aircraft at all.  I tried another local flight using the simbrief data and low and behold it worked as advertised.  Maybe just a fluke, or some wrong data I entered.  I will keep at it. Thanks all.

No, in fact I try to stay slightly above the GS if all possible.

You have to be below the glideslope for it to capture the glideslope.

Well, I flew from Columbus, Ohio to Atlanta using the simbrief plan and all went well, so maybe I am finally getting the hang of it. Difficult sometimes inserting waypoints on FMS when you get that discontinuity messages.

 

Thanks, Bobsk8, I will remember that.
