I’ve read the tutorial in regards to ils approach, but still very confused, I’ve been playing the game pretty much all day, I assume you can only select ils approach at airports that have the technology within a particular destination of the runway, do I also have to be at a particular height to pick up the ILS
I flew from MAN - TFS setting up a few way points on the way. I expected to pick up the ILS but all I could do was Manual landing or GPS
This is my 1st day on the full version so still learning. 😁😁
when you open the map runways with the red cone are the ones with ILS, to activate ILS first you must be close to the airport (30 nm) once you are close youll open the map and click on the airport and a page will open and go to the runways page and click the runway you are landing on and click NAV 1 once this is done you continue your flight when you reach the cone you should be 3000-4000ft Above Aerodrome Level in which youll open your autopilot and change the bottom right button to APPR also you should be at a speed of at the most 180kts otherwise youll not catch the localiser. Happy flying and welcome to global :)
You said you’ve seen the tutorials, so I won’t focus too much on that, but I have linked a great step-by-step post below.
One way to tell if an airport has ILS or not (assuming you can’t discern from the cones), is to tap on the airport and then go to the “runway” heading. If you tap on a specific runway and the “set NAV 1” button is disabled, then that runway is not equipped with ILS. If it’s not disabled, it does have ILS and you can then follow the steps in the topic below. Keep in mind that most major airports have ILS, so you can go off of that as well. Hope this helps!
You can also set it so once established on the ILS, your HUD in the middle will establish with the localizer. Select the runway, hit set NAV 1 once in range, move to your NAV button (shown on the right below systems), change it to NAV 1. Once on final, everything should be align with the runway. This should help a lot!
Hi! If you set APPR mode on (not all aircraft have it) the aircraft will automatically capture the glide slope and the localiser so it flies by itself and even lands by itself too! If you don’t activate APPR mode you will have to adjust it yourself.
