APPR Going Crazy

I was approaching Denver with an ILS approach on RWY17R. When I was stabilized on the LOC it started to correct its course crazily going left then right then left then right, so I disconnected it and landed manually. Why does this happen?

Did you set the runway to nav1?

Yes I did.

Maybe you were too high?

I was on the glide slope.

Hmmm and have you watched this video?

You might have been slow?

Speed? Load? Was it under MLW?

Yes I have and I use APPR on every landing.

Yes it was.

Was at 200kts

You could’ve been too fast or slow. That sometimes cause the aircraft to adjust a lot to get perfectly set on the glide slope. What aircraft were you flying?

What aircraft were U using?

The B77W.

777 OK, erm, unless we seen the replay can’t say for definite what caused it. However it does sometime happen but its likely cos you were too early?

Alright, I’ll send the replay then.


My idea is that Denver is located at a high altitude, so I think this happened because of air resistance.


Here’s the replay.
