ILS

Siervo. Guest

Hi anyone. can anyone tell me how to use ILS on 2004? The tower just gives the instructions, but ther is no frequency given to ajust the radio. therfore you get lost, unless you do a visual request.

The following web site is the answer to your problem--
"www.myairplane.com".

The site appears to be available for free viewing. They offer approach plates, sectional charts, terminal control area charts, and current weather at the selected airport. I tried about a half dozen airports and viewed an ILS approach plate for the runway that I selected. The plates all came up nicely. I didn't print any of them, but it looked like you print it if you so desired. They also have plates for standard arrival and departure routes.

Make sure that you have "ACTIVE-X" enabled and enable java scripts also. I had my ACTIVE-X shut down for security reasons (it's a very big security risk to keep it open for hackers). After I opened up my ACTIVE-X the approach plate came right up.

The site is in the business of selling real airplanes, and they could start charging for these charts, but right now they are free.

You can use the GPS system to find the frequency (its a bit complcated to start off but gets easier)or you can use map switch on the instrument panel and click on the airport to get all details(this pauses the sim)

I would try to get used to using the GPS as this does not pause the sim and it will get easier

One place to get approach plates for free is http://www.AOPA.com As a member, you can download the approach plates (US Terminal procedures) for any airport for free. They are in PDF format. There is also lots of other cool stuff there. The only catch is you have to be a member, but in return you get a great magazine and access to a lot of services like flight planning and weather.

There is a great add on gauge for FS2002 called RWYINFO which allows you to key in the ICAO code and then select the required runway. The frequencies and course were then set up for you.

I think I saw somewhere that this had been recently upgraded for FS2004 but I have not tried to find it yet.

🤔 I don't know exactly what you are looking for but I took a stab at this.

I got the 2002 version from FlightSim.com but I'm not sure where I saw the 2004 version.

😛 JUST GO IN THE 2D CABIN-SELECT MAP UNDER WORLD-FIND YOUR AIRPORT CLICK ON THE RUNWAYS AND THE AIRPORT INFO WILL SHOW UP, YOU THEN SELECT YOUR RWY, CLICK IN YOUR FREQUENCY AND RUNWAY HEADING AND BINGO

Ya. There are several ways to find out the right freq, by GPS, By the map (2 possibilities) But the most prefer way to my opinion : Just to have it before take off (if U know ahead of time where are u going) Idea

Well sure you can do that, also by just clicking on the map icon which is on most panels....

BUT....

This is fiddly and only any use if you are near the airport you are going to land at and generally by the time you are that near it is too late to start getting the course and frequency set up.

Also you have to write down these details, close the map, and then enter them into the nav radio and course selector.

The point about the runway info gauge is that you can pop it up at any time and just key in the 4 letter ICAO code for the airport you intend to land at and it presents you with a list of available ILS runways. You just click on the one you want, click continue and it then programs the radio and course for you automatically.

Hi David
If U R in that final stage one of the best ways is …described with 4 –6 clicks in
It works and U don’t have to click in the frq. It done by hiself.
If U serius on the matter U should read the tutorial on GPS and around page 15 U can find some thing on that

THIS IS FOR IFR FLIGHT!

1. When ATC says something liek "WifeBeater 767, you are 32 Miles away. Turn right heading 105, descend and mantain 2,500 feet, cleared ILS runway 36R Approach". You have to click on your MAP icon in your cockipt. Then, move your mouse over the destination airport. Mind you, the airport MUST have the ILS feathers (thes are the green things that point to the runway). Double click on the airport. A list will show up. Scroll down the list untill you see a chart that shows Runway numbers. FInd 36R, or whatever your runway is. You look to the right and see a radio frequency. We'll use 100.100 because its easy to remember. Don't forget the frequency.

2. Open up your Radio Stack, and enter in 100.100 in the NAV1 Radio, usually the righmost radio number is the one that can be messed with. After you enter it 100.100, using the mouse wheel or clickin it. Press the button that looks like thsi somewhat, its in the middle of the 2 radio displays <-----> That changes the NAV1 Radio frequency from whatever it was, to what it is now (100.100)

3.Turn on the NAV1 Radio by clicking the switch at the bottom of the radio stack, unless its already on, like with the LearJet.

4. If you have Autopilot, and you are using GPS to follow waypoints, switch the NAV/GPS button back to NAV!!!! YOU CANT FORGET TO DO THAT!!! YOU'LL BURN AND DIE IF YOU DONT!!

5. Follow ATC directions to approach. Now, when you approach the Runway, you will see the pink arrows near your attitude indicator move...usually Heading first, then Altitude. Simply fly in the directon and atitude of the pink arrows intull they center themselves, that means you're on the glideslope!

6. If you wanna use the autopilot to fly the approach, simply follow steps 1-4, then click the APPR button on the autopilot panel.
