I decided to create this post to give some additional information on flying ILS approaches, on top of the tutorial already available on the forum. I am linking to a YouTube video by Captain Joe, a real life Airbus A320 pilot, who gives a very good explanation on how to fly ILS approaches, including some additional information on speeds, calculations, and compensation for wind.
As a side note, as I have seen many forum posts saying that the autoland feature “doesn’t work”, I would like to reiterate that you should only engage APPR once you are established on the ILS, meaning you are in line with both the localizer and the glideslope.
I hope this helps some of you perfect your approaches, especially our newer pilots.
Safe and happy landings!
