However, If you're using... (We'll use the PMDG 747 as an example) an aircraft and you update the AIRACs for that Aircraft's FMC and you're doing an arrival for that specific runway with the new ILS, Will that AIRAC update enable the ILS on the Aircraft?
|Quoting Fly2HMO (Reply 2):|
The ILS is always enabled on the aircraft. The AIRAC is just going to put it into the FMS and make it selectable assuming it wasn't there before. That's it. When you tune the ILS frequency in a scenery that has not been updated with that new ILS you wont get a signal. So, no, you won't be able to use it, though you may select it and it will be displayed on the MFD.
You can use AFCAD to update things like ILSs and navaids at airports but there's no such thing as global navaid updates for the base FS scenery unfortunately.

...Which doesn't work with FS9, only FSX
|Quoting Brendan03 (Reply 6):|
*I'm actually not sure if YMML 34 has an ILS, I just saw the ATIS reporting "Expect Instrument Approach" on the ATIS for it recently.
|Quoting Fabo (Reply 7):|
Instrument approach does not mean ILS - could be VOR/NDB (DME), possibly RNAV/GPS approach. I'd expect "Expect ILS approach" if ILS was in use.
|Quoting CPH-R (Reply 5):|
It works just fine with FS9. I've been using it over AFCAD for ages now.
|Quoting Fabo (Reply 7):|
It does - I should know. I designed couple af data packs with it. For one that is built from scratch and was released, look up LYNK Niksic on avsim. 99% done in ADE - 1% is flatten written by hand.

My grasp of terminology isn't that fantastic, I only learned what LAHSO is the otherday!
