How to activate APPR

You do you have to set it to NAV1/2

Click on airport. Press runways. Choose runway. In the bottom right you can select either one

@Trio thanks for that! I made a russian version for my mates!

I’m making a video of me intercepting, it’s the same procedure pretty much as in the Navigation tutorial video though.

Here’s a video of me going from GPS source autopilot > HDG autopilot > NAV 1 autopilot APPR, ILS for 09R.

I’ll try it out

@Trio I did some testing. There is a simpler way to engage APPR. So say I have waypoints leading me to the localizer intercept. I‘m flying NAV source GPS. The waypoints result in me turning so that I’m at a 30 degree angle to the localizer, yet still 8nm away from intercept. What I would do is instead of using HDG and all that stuff, do something way simpler. So I’m landing 27R at Heathrow. I click onto Heathrow and tune in NAV1 for the ILS 27R. After this, I just change my current NAV to APPR instead, not needing to change anything such as source or whatever. The source can remain in GPS and everything may stay the same.

Yes, that is the other option I layed out in this post. Whatever works.

Thanks @Trio, this was so needed. It’s complicated, but I can get used to it, just gotta get back in the swing of things with this new UI.

Hello @ItsinziAir,

What device do you use and what version of Infinite Flight do you have? The most recent update 19.4?

Indeed this is confusing but it is well layed out here.

I have seen a lot of posts about how this is “negative”, but people ask for realism, they get it, they complain. Just learn it here!

Check out this post and the #tutorials category on the forum for more information. Have fun with the update! :)

Hello good afternoon guys When I try to use the ILS approach on Airbus 320 and 321, the plane sways too much, someone could explain to me why it usually happens

didnt think it happened on the a320, but ig the a321 APPR glitch was not fixed in this update :(

it’s a known bug, and i’ve stop using the a321 since I cant land manually lol

Your description of the problem you are experiencing is too vague and broad too make assumptions as to what the problem is, with little details. I would suggest creating a detailed #general topic to hash it out with other community members so they can help you figure out what the issue is.

The way the buttons for controlling the plane are set up in this new update are such a hassle just like this way to activate approach. This adds alot more time and is annoying when doing a flight. Is their anyway I can start a voting process to get the old way back of how the controls were setup? Or is their already a voting process going on?

Doubt that would happen. Don’t really see what is so confusing about it. Have you checked out any of the tutorials? They lay it out pretty well, so far no issues here

Hi, I saw the video above and I tried on my side. After struggling for a while I figured out that APPR does not work if ALT is switched on in AP.
Maybe you could add a small step in the procedure (before engaging APPR make sure VS and HDG are switched on and ALT is switched off in AP settings). Could you please confirm my finding?

Thanks ,

Daniele
