ILS Indicator in the Taskbar

What is it?

What I’m requesting is for the ILS indicators be available in the “taskbar” on the bottom of the screen. It will be inside the Other section, with the title ILS.

Why do we need it?

As you know, in the cockpit or HUD, you can see if you are established on the glide slope, and in line for the centerline. However, outside those camera views, you can only rely visually on the runway.

In any camera outside the plane, you can select the ILS widget, and see it in the taskbar. This will be useful for those that do not fly in the cockpit often, or those that wish to rely on the taskbar only.


The ILS widget will show the glide slope, and you in relation to the centerline. It will also show the runway identifier, such as 8R, or 26L.

There will also be an option to turn on or off the distance to the runway. The distance will be in Nautical Miles, just as the ILS display in the HUD and cockpit are.

When you are not in range, or established on an ILS, the option to select the ILS widget will be greyed out, which means you won’t be able to click on it.

(I Photoshopped the ILS into the picture above, as of now, it is NOT confirmed into the simulator.)

Thank you for reading through this feature request! If you like it, vote! If you have any questions, just ask, I’ll be happy to answer them. Thank you again!

I like the idea of an ILS indicator. I don’t like the idea of having it in the taskbar because in my opinion it doesn’t fit in there.

I’d prefer if it would appear where the centerline indicator is right now (inside this little compass) when approaching an ILS. Maybe there could be an option where one could choose in the settings how he or she wants to have it displayed.


If you don’t want it there, you can always just select something else to take its spot! I see where you are coming from though.

That’s a good solution if you want to try an approach without the HUD on cockpit view, for example. That’s the closest to working cockpit instruments, after working cockpit instruments, of course.

I would say the same for other mini-instruments on the UI Deck. If I were to do a no-HUD Approach, Count me in for this!

I like the idea but what if it detects a runway you’re not landing at

That’s already happening with the current system. It’s not very dramatic.

When you land, you fix your runway anyway so this mistake would only happen during departure or before you fixated your runway.

MaxSez: The presant configuration works for me. I and most fly visual approaches except in VMC with a continues HUD scan. The HUD just mimics the dashboard like in the RW. I’d not be comfortable with depending on a few dots along the bottom of the screen for ILS alinement. I ditch the HUD in some GA or use the Assistant 6 Pack when I’m bored. No vote from me, KISS!
