Finding actual runway heading

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to find the actual runway heading in FSX when dialling in an ILS approach (As opposed to the RWY designator). Previously I used to use FSNav to find the actual runway heading to set the ILS approach up with. Is there somewhere in the default FSX install where I can find the info?With thanks,Chris Porter:-outtaPerthWestern AustraliaCheck out my 5th Around the World flight with MS FSX at http://members.iinet.com.au/~portercbp/fly...W_05/index.html

Get the approach plate for the runway/airport. ITs fairly easy for the US. Not sure about Australia.Manny

You can use the map view under the World menu. Click on the destination airport and it will list all of the runways, specify which have ILS, and the exact dirction of the localizer. R-

Yeah, it is much more accurate than just pressing the auto localiser button, it always drifts off a bit and never the exact runway position. I would suggest switching to the heading of the approach runway 15nm from the airport so you have a nice, smooth approach but you are within close enough proximity of the ILS vector.

Once the flightplan has been generated, click on the destination airport, zoom it in and then click on one of the runways. A new screen will open, select the airport and you'll get a complete list of all airport frequency's, runways, ILS (if any) and if they have an ILS, you'll also get the correct heading. This can then be printed and you have everything you need at hand while landing.
