Approach legs

Recommended Posts

Anybody has an approach leg example to show me.I have no idea how the approach leg should be compiled since the BGLCOMP content doesn't explain clearly how a SID/STAR may be converted in XLM file.Thanks

Thanks for the example and the additional website.I have been watching the AI at KMCO where approaches are already available in the default. The AI seem to go to a waypoint for an ILS approach defined in the Approach line, in your case:The remainder of the data is ignored by AI, since ATC is controlling.I believe the remainder of the approach statements (elements) are used by the GPS to display and control approaches for the player aircraft.I tried setting up an actual approach for a new runway at Orlando International (KMCO) airport using the BGLCOMP schema but the AI didn't go the proper point until I made the first line the point I wanted them to start at for the approach.W.
