Guys, this has been alluding me for a while. I have never been able to figure out how to do a full ILS approach, I always miss a step. I always seem to have to request the visual, but I see screenshots here of folks doing autoland and letting the AP track the ILS approach. Can you guys help me out?

Get yourself roughly 8 miles out from your destination airport, dial up the ILS frequency on your NAV1 radio, roughly be flying about 2800 ft on autopilot. When you see the glideslope arrows appear on the navigation screen click APP. Fly using GPS if you want towards the runway heading or so that you will cross the runway heading. When you intercept the ILS course your aircraft will turn onto the correct heading and the course bar will come toward runway heading. Once you reach the right glideslope height your ALT will disengage and the autopilot will fly you down the glideslope. Hopefully this helps

look guys the approach button means approach not landing.
if u use the app button to land, what are u achieving. do that in a lesson and the instructor will fail u for sure.
sure u can use it for the APPROACH, bu not for the actuall landing.
