EMB145 And Autoland

Sun Jan 13, 2013 12:29 am

Is autoland an option on the EMB145 and if so which operators have it?
...are we there yet?

You can have it in approach mode until you are about 50-100 feet above the runway. If you don't take it off approach mode, it will slam the nose gear into the ground.
Not every day we find light winds. What do we do in these situations? Fly.

If there is such a thing called auto land for the EMB145. I wouldn't trust it at all.

The piece of turd EMB145 autopilot can't even intercept, track and fly an ILS and GS properly much less try to land the thing. It's just as high quality as the rest of the airplane.

I've found that it does a fine job, as long as you're inside 25 miles. Most deviations inside i've found are caused by aircraft inside the critical area or crossing the rollout end of the runway near the localizer antenna.

Keep in mind most U.S. localizers and glideslopes are only flight inspected and certified for 18 NM unless an Expanded Service Volume (ESV) has been requested and certified. Then the exact distance is dependent upon what distance was requested in the ESV and what distance passed during the flight inspection.

Very true and I've seen that occur on final at any distance from the runway in aircraft other than E145's.

I was on a 145 jumpseat into ATW and the localizer went crazy...to the point where we flying s turns for much of the approach. In fact it was so bad that if we hadn't broken out when we did....we would have gone around even though it was 1000 feet AGL still. When we landed....the localizer was showing a dot and a half to the left despite the fact that we were on centerline. ATC told us that only the 145 was having issues with that approach into ATW.

As people have said...the autopilot will fly the approach to decision height, but then the pilots have to actually hand fly the landing, so there is no true autoland which will flare and rollout as well. The CRJ's are exactly the same as the ERJ's in this regard, but I am not sure about the 170-190 series.
