737-800YV ILS Landing

Postby Ivan-Pekar » Fri Jun 08, 2018 2:50 pm

When pressing 'LOC' and 'APP' etc. on the 737-800YV FCU or Autopilot --> Autopilot Settings (F11) , the aircraft does not execute any turns or descents towards the runway, as if nothing happens. I have put in the correct ILS frequency and it is shown on the map just like with any other aircraft. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Thanks

Hello.
As the developer of this autopilot, I will explain you what happen.

737-800YV has a realistic way of switching modes, so when you press LOC or APP, the LOC and G/S modes become armed. Then, once you intersect the ILS path (can see it in cyan on the map), the autopilot will capture the LOC signal, and then G/S signal. If you are already inside this path, the LOC and G/S modes will become immediately active instead of armed.

Best Regards,
Josh
