Hi guys :) ,
I know you’re going to think this is absolutely noobish of me to ask,but when I see “Turn right heading 270” does that mean I can keep the autopilot on and switch it to 270 heading, or disconnect and turn right manually? I was approaching KORD from the south, and I was on the approach with ATC there. I was given the instructions to turn right heading 270. I disconnected the autopilot and tried turning right manually but then I got a warning for a speed violation. Then after I got that notification, and fixed it, I got the notification I would get ghosted if I didn’t follow instructions. I freaked out and left because I wasn’t sure how to correct that.
Now unlike other threads, this is not me blaming the ATC. They did an amazing job :) . I’m just trying to figure out what I should do for next time. I might attempt the flight again in an hour :) . After all, all of us are still learning here :) . Thank you :)
