Strange Happenings

Recommended Posts

For some reason RC has been giving some bad ILS vectors. SometimesI,m so far out I don't pick up the Loc and other times I am kept toohigh to pick up the GS. This has happened at KBOS,KSLC,KLAX,KJFK. ATJFK I was on base at 9000 and then given intercept vectors and toldto descend to 3000. This seems happen on a regular basis lately. I have to blow the approach and ask for IAP. I.m trying to remember exactly when this started and I think it is more since I went FSUIPC3.60. I have downloaded the 3.615 tonight but have not had a chanceto try it. All these flight are with LDS 767.

this happens, usually when the msa is a higher than normal height, which means i have to keep you higher when your traveling downwind, which means you have to go further out, before turning to base.when you are turned to base, watch the fsuipc/advdisp window. when the heading to the airport, is within 5 degrees of the runway heading, start turn toward the runway heading.you'll be close enough to the localizer when you start receiving it, then make your slight adjustmentsjd
