ILS Frequency

Guest

When I put on autopilot for approach, I read the thread that says I need to put in the ILS Frequency. How do I do that and how do I know what frequency to put in?

Click on the MAP icon on the instrument panel, click on the airport symbol, ILS frequencies will be listed for each runway with an ILS. Only some runways have a ILS. Enter frequency into the number 1 navigation radio.

Read through the Learning Center in Flight Simulator and complete the lessons. I suggest the Cessna 172, it will make learning easier. Smile

Good responce by CRJCapt. Another way to do it is to go to www.myairplane.com , click on NACO Approach Plates, then type in your airport, find an approach you like, and it will have freqs printed on it. The ILS frequencies are the ones on the "Feathers", and say something like "Localizer" or "ILS" are the ones you want, in FS, they are green. Here is an example for Phoenix SkyHarbor runway 26:

http://www.myairplane.com/databases/approach/pdfs/00322I26.PDF

The ILS freq is 111.75.

FWIW, all ILS freqs that are printed are for the Localizer(left/right), and the ILS receiver automatically matches it's associated glideslope(up/down).

Well make sure you put it into both the Nav 1 radio and the Nav 2 radio otherwise you'll be as lost as I was for quite awhile back in the day.

Confused I've never had to input the ILS frequency into both Nav radios... I don't believe that is accurate

You're correct. I think that aircraft that utilizing a auto land approach require both radios be set to the ILS frequency, a normal ILS uses NAV 1 only. Smile

Well at least for me I could never get ILS to work unless I had it programed into both.

I've never had this problem.....? NAV1 works fine for me......

The new Wilco "COPS" payware add-on pack had some teething problems.....

why do people jump straight into a jet without learning first? Shocked
and then wonder why they cant do it?

I did the same thing - jets are so much more interesting than small aircraft Laughing It just took me a lot longer working it out on my own than if I had started with the small aircraft and worked my way up Wink

It's just so much fun Very Happy

FTR, I know perfectly well why I can't do it: I'm incompetent. But jets are big and sexy and fun. Oh, I like doing the lessons in the Cessna too - it's much more challenging to really learn something. Every now and then, though, the temptation to take a 747 and wobble it around the sky is overwhelming.

Yet I keep going back to props and flying without using GPS. It is great that FS allow us to have fun in our own ways. Very Happy

Happy flying Smile

Agreed. For myself, I am a compulsive fiddler. I'll mess about with anything. Well, just about anything - I generally find it wise to ask permission before messing about with things attached to women.

But yeah, competent or not, FS is highly enjoyable and the best bit is, even if one is a complete duffer (like me) we still get to fly 747s without endangering real people. My virtual passengers would probably complain, but they're all dead by now Smile

Well this is only accurate if you are attempting an autoland

set both nav radios to the ils frequency and hit autopilot then approch

the plane should fly it for you.
