Ok so my problem may be pilot error but for some reason I have trouble centering with the runway on final, even with no crosswind, my plane just drifts to the left and right and it screws up my landings. I usually keep autopilot on until I’m about halfway on my final. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong or what. If there’s something I’m doing wrong please let me know. Thanks.
Are you using any rudder?
Make sure you are using your rudder to stay aligned on the runway. This is key.
Rudder is important when landing
On top of what Alpha said, make sure to calibrate your device before disengaging A/P.
The biggest issue you can face on final is mostly over correction, your best bet is to just let it glide down. Turning too much can be catastrophic.
This might be annoying but the minute a see that start drifting to the left or right I just turn a lot so I’m saying that if your going left then turn right a little bit then if you going right then turn left you may have to do this a lot until you 200 feet from the ground.
Also you want your speed to be in the 140-160knots depending on aircraft like the 140-160 may be good for a 777
On the ground yes.
As stated, use rudder when on landing. And tilt your device to keep it centred as best as possible:)
It’s not easy to be on a center line it takes time and practice so make sure you go in solo and practice for a bit ;)
