I have been playing Aerofly FS 2 and have REALLY been enjoying it
I am VERY interested in the Auto-Pilot function and the ILS "Approach Landing"
For the love of everything that is holy, I have been searching YouTube videos, reading forums, asking questions, taking flight after flight, reading the Wiki, I CANNOT seem to figure this out
Let me explain, I can take off fine. I can fly the entire flight using the flight plan and making slight adjustments on the way
The ENTIRE flight goes fine
Now it comes time for the "approach" (Auto Landing). And, I have followed guides, I have done step by step walk troughs from you Tube. my head hurts I am researching this so mcuh.
This is a VERY fastly typed step by step of what I am doing. What am i doing wrong? am I missing something?
note, I am making sure I am inputting the ILS destination airport frequency. So i am choosing an airport that has ILS
Set altitude dial to 5,000
Turn course dial to match Heading on Compass Panel Display (The numbers should match almost exact when guage is lined up to very top
Set heading to match Course Dial #

Click Speed button (it should light up)
Climb up about 15 degrees until you get high enough
Click "Auto Pilot" On
Click on "heading Select" so the button lights up
Check Vertical Speed. it changes by itself after take off. make sure it is at 1500
Dial in heading dial to lock on location(s) seen on flight plan
Enjoy your Auto-Pilot flight
Toward the end of the flight, start slowing down the plane. Maybe 170 Knotts? Not sure
Change flaps to 10%
Also start to (SLIGHTLY) bring the altitude down
Vert Speed Dial - Set to -500 (not sure if this is necessary but he did it in the video)
Get speed down to Final Approach speed (140)
Drop Landing gear
