Navigation

  • Are you talking about a keyboard key attached to an autopilot command? I never used it, for landing I use only AP1, AP2, A / T and APPR. I didn't understand it very well, but my landings are reasonably executed in Autoland, you only lose the descent ramp and the locator if you get away from them.

  • The copilot selects the navigation source required for the route which could be the ILS but also the FMS. It should time the ILS if you selected it as an approach in the route. On final it turns the flight directors off to force autothrottle into speed mode as it is done often in the real world too. The copilot has to deal with all kinds of airplane and this is the best compromise for now. He then proceeds to land with FD off and he doesn't look at the ILS because he is always visual with the runway (his eyes are that good).
