APPR Fail. (Devs I have the video for you)

One of the things that would help the autopilot out in capturing the approach is to fly a heading that will intercept the localizer.

What does that mean?

For runway 28 and in the position you were in, I would’ve flown a heading of 260 so that you would get the aircraft of a trajectory closer to the extended centerline. The heading that you were flying, 276 is way too shallow and would not allow you to intercept the ILS in time.

This might be of assistance as well:
