    1900D Question

    I just purchased the 1900D a couple of days ago and I have a question. Why does the GNS530 have to be turned on in order to navigate? What if the GPS is MEL'd Inop? Does that mean that you cannot fly VFR/IFR with this model? When I tune the Collins NAV to a VOR station nothing happens, ie, no DME readout. I flew the 1900C in the RW with over 2000 hrs in type. We had to hand fly the aircraft from takeoff to touchdown. We didn't have a GPS or AP back in those days. This 1900D is a great looking aircraft.

    Autoland Problem

    Hey guys, Thanks for your help on my Autoland issue but I think I figured out what the problem was. When I got the 737 last week I downloaded a USAirways livery which had the Honeywell MCP. I did a Autoland with that livery and no Autoland on approach. Looking at the Introduction to the 737 .pdf file the Honeywell MCP does not have the Fail passive option so no Autoland. The Collins MCP does.I have no issues now when using the Collins MCP. Keem em straight and level. Thanks again for your imput.

    Autoland Problem

    Thanks for the quick reply. The next approach I do I will bypass the HSG panel and set up for a Autoland. I was curious when they said to setup the HGS panel also. I think it was a FedEx employee that desighed that logo and he got payed big bucks for it.

    Autoland Problem

    Look at the red EX closely and see if you see anything. Last night I found out why I wasn't getting a Land3. On another forum I found out you have to set the HGS panel also when setting the ILS freq. I haven't used the HUD display on approach so that is why I did not use the HSG panel. This morning I did a ILS 9R to KPHL and passing 1500' I got a Land 3 indication. Rollout and Flare was indicated. This time it worked. Thanks again for your help.

    Autoland Problem

    pcubine, Thanks for replying. I will check the settings you describe in my FMC. I like your Sig. Yesterday, I installed a Fedex 737 livery. I also have the FedEx livery on my Majestic Q400. With reference to the FedEx logo do you see what I see?

    Autoland Problem

    I think Flare and RETARD was armed but not sure. The problem is at touchdown the SPD brakes do not deploy even though the speed brake was armed. I also fly the Captainsim 757 and the LevelD767 and have no problem doing a Autoland with those aircraft. I flew 22 years for an airline in the RW before retiring in 2007.

    Autoland Problem

    Just got the 737 NGX 3 days ago and an really impressed with this bird. I have watched numerous videos on youtube on how to Autoland. I have both Nav radios set to the ILS freq, both Autopilots are engaged. The speed brake is armed. Istablished inbound I moniter the PD, CMD is selected. Here s where the problem starts. Passing 1500' Land 3 does not illuminate.It stays at CMD. I must be missing an important step on setting up for Autoland. I was doing a flight from KATL to KMCO for the ILS17R at MCO. Any assistance would be appreciated.
