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

If you use APR for full Autoland in both FS2000 and FS2002 you will most propably crash, you have to disconnect the autopilot at around 200ft AGL.

OH, I realized this on my first ILS approach into Des Moines, the plane touched down about 500 feet short of the runway  Smile

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.
cheers
cosync!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Make sure the GPS/NAV switch is turned to NAV before you select APP. And disengage the a/p @ 200 ft above the ground.

No, you misunderstood me. It was set at 113.50. I pushed it up until 117.**. Then I pushed another plus. It turned into 108.** I was trying to get it to 119.45

Also,

Consider using the stock MS aircraft if you want to do an autoland. Most third party aircraft aren't designed to use autoland, as the MS autoland has a strange system.

Cheers,

Justin

Doesn't matter to me, I always use the stock 773 panel on all my downloads.

9V-SVE, I think he means use the stock aircraft, not just the panel. The autoland characteristics are contained inside the .air file and the panel has no effect on the actual autoland.
