Problems with maintaining altitude

So when I fly in IF I sometimes have problems with maintaining altitude. For example I set auto pilot for 22,000 feet .It climbs to 22,000 feet and keeps going on. This is very annoying on flights. Is anyone else having this problem? And if so, is there a solution?

Are you actually engaging ALT or are you just setting the parameter? Also, if your VS is high (2000+) approaching your target altitude, the autopilot will overshoot a little.

Make sure that the “ALT” box is highlighted with an orange box - that means that its “engaged” - if its not the plane will just keep climbing at the set vertical speed until it stalls.

Thanks guys will try that

Engage the ALT box and for better effect make sure Vertical speed box is also checked. This will make your flying experience much better.
