LCY problem

Hello guys! I have one question. today I tried to land instrumentally at london city airport. As you can see from the photo, I am in the localizer (photo 1), but I was too high and could not land (photo 2). I want to ask if this is a bug or just an ils at this airport


Can you confirm that you (a) were not tuned to the other end of the runway and (b) were actually established on the glideslope at that instant?

You are meant to make a hard nose down on final, so approach mode is not optimal. Just use visual and you will be fine. :)

i can send replay on pm

Thanks, that would be great. I’ll check it out and let you know.

You were probably tunned in the wrong runway. Also you can see you approach is going wrong because of the PAPI lights.

Just looked at your replay. The London City approach comes in much higher than most approaches, mainly due to surrounding obstacles. You’ll want to disengage APPR earlier next time and continue the approach by hand. There are plenty of resources available online that will help you out with this.
