It may be due to my advanced age, I am 77, however as a retired psychologist I have always felt somewhat intelligent, but there are some aspects of the FS9 map that seem to elude me:
1) How does one make the center line stretch from an airport from a runway?
2) How does one make the line from an airport to where ever your airplane is?
3) I have tried to follow the steps given by Jonathon for an ILS approach and landing, and even did it once, since however, I seem to be having trouble. I tried using the procedures for landing at Auckland Int airport in New Zealand and keep crashing. Not sure what I am doing wrong, I set my altitude at 2800 feet, keep my speed well below 180 kts, use NAV, but I keep over shooting the runway.
Maybe I should just quit. LOL
Just wanted to let the group know that I discovered what I was doing wrong, I think. I use the auto pilot to guide the airplane into position more in line with the runway, however I was forgetting to set the auto pilot back to NAV from HEADING. 😀
