I’ve been playing IF regularly for about 6 months now, but still can’t perform a manual landing for the life of me. I’ve watched tutorials and know the inputs required, yet I still can’t hold my trajectory still. Anyone have any tips? Should my sensitivity settings be adjusted away from defaults?
other q’s for the community:
are you ‘good’ at manual landings, and are yours smoother than APPR?
how long have you been flying in IF before you attempted and/or mastered man. landings?
when a pilot performs an ILS approach, does that automatically mean autoland? Or that simply means a pilot just follows the glideslope and localizer–but does not specify how the ILS path is followed (with or w/o autopilot).
in the real world: do pilots generally request visual approaches even when ILS is available? what’s the benefit to a visual if you can only do visual once the airport is in sight?
is autoland generally used even in clear/calm weather?
