Autopilot that pitches for airspeed (instead of autothrottles)

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to log the vertical flightpath of an aircraft model flying a SID (to see if I can make the altitude restrictions). I'm using FltRec for FS2004 ( http://avsim.com/hangar/utils/nav/#Users_Manual_ ) to dump the data out. I'm going to use a Boeing 707 model. What I'm looking for is an autopilot that will (1) Fly a SID that is entered into the IFR flight plan system. I assume I can use a freeware progam to define this.(2) Use an autopilot to maintain precise headings and airspeeds. My problem is that I need to maintain a specific thrust setting (EPR) for takeoff during the first 5 minutes, then a lesser specific setting afterwards. The FS autopilots/autothrottles do not change the aircraft pitch to match an airspeed. Instead they vary the power setting or rely on the user setting a desired Vertical Velocity rate. Where can I find an autopilot that will alter the aircraft pitch instead of altering power settings?Thanks,Enrique

You won't "find one." If you need one, you'll need to program it yourself. ;)
