I’ve tried it twice but I never succeeded…

I was enroute to KSAN and made a descent and tried it and didn’t succeed, on expert

Are you not using the ILS instruments?

KAVX doesn’t have an ILS

Apologies, GPS. Thanks for the correction.

Are you trying to fly into KAVX with a jet commercial airliner? I wouldn’t.

I recommend GA aircraft.

  1. There is only a 3,000 ft runway
  2. Catalina Irl is GA
  3. IRL you have to pay $20 to land there
  4. It’s not realistic

although you can land a 737 there…

I managed to do it, although granted, I almost hit a mountain. The terrain alert system really helped.

Yes but I overcorrected a bank once and almost crashed. So I gave up and flew to KTOA.
