upon approaching to my destination airport, when ATC geve me the ok to land and the runway, I click on my map and select the runway they requested me to go on and all..........
But the problem I have is that when I go into my map and select my runway, I cannot find the Frequency to select for my navigation in the radio. I know this is a newbie thing but can anyone help me on the problem???
A little bit of background please. What FS are you using FS9 or an earlier version? If you are trying to select from the map in front of you within the cockpit there should be ILS frequencies there. So the next question that people will want to know is. What is your route in other words from DFWD to KCMO. I just made those up. I generally have brought maps up and write down the ILS frquencies on postit notes. I have them all over the place for different air ports.
I hope this helps to determine what you need. Please don't hesitate to ask.
In map mode, left click on the airport symbol. A window will open with communication and navigation aid frequencies. You may have to scroll down to the runway that you need. Please note that every runway doesn't have a ILS or LOC type landing aid. 🙂

I find it a nuisance to be looking up runway frequencies at the same time I'm dealing with my approach setup.
I always look all that up first.
Ok I will try to look up the frequency on my map but crjcapt, do you have the whole list on your computer or can you send me a copy of the airports you have listed? That will really help..
I'm sorry I don't have a list. It would be a very long list. There are over 20,000 airports within Flight Simulator. The map has them all. 🙂
Some, but not many frequencies are not listed, that is true. The work-around is zoom in the the airport on the map real close, click on this runway, you will find the frequency for this runway ILS is listed there 🙂
JUST WANT TO SAY THANKS TO ALL FOR HELPING ME OUT, I FINALLY FOUND THE CORRECT APPROACH FREQUENCY FOR THE AIRPORT AND MADE AN SWEET LANDING WITHOUT KILLING ABOUT 140 PEOPLE.
NOW THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS WHEN I TRIED TO SETUP FOR SAFE SPEED FOR LANDING BUT WHEN I PRESS MY MACH HOLD SWITCH WOULD NOT WORK...THE LIGHT WOULD NOT PRESS AND SO I CAME INTO LANDING ABOUT 200MPH... CAN ANYONE HELP ME?
At landing height (or 20,000 ft before) you should have the SPD selected and not the Mach hold.
Also check that you have auto throttle selected which is probably why it won't allow you to select mach/SPD hold.
P.S might be worth checking your caps lock key too while you're at it 😉
