RNAV approach only working at US airports and other issues

  • Hey all, I have completed landings in all major airports around AEROFLY Global and thus tried to fly RNAV approaches whenever possible (e.g. when possible to be selected in the flight planner). I fly without co-pilot, meaning that the auto-tune functionalities are not enabled. However, RNAV seems only to be working at US airports and not for any other airport around the globe. Moreover, I perceived that. despite having disabled the auto-tuning, somehow the RAD/NAV is always filled automatically. Am I missing something?


    Regarding the other topics, I summarized them below:

    a) A380 dater some “time skips” reaches an altitude of more than 40.000ft. After descending, the engines stuck at this N1 even after resetting the trust levers to idle:


    b) Hong Kong airport has some poles at the beginning/end of each runway.


    Nonetheless, I wanted to extend my gratitude to IPACS as a whole, providing us with this massive game.


    JFYI: I am playing on an iPAD Pro M1

  • There is an option in the assistance settings for auto-tuning, which affects the radio-nav auto-tuning for all aircraft.

    Some aircraft also have their own nav auto-tuning in the real world and that auto-tuning is not affected by the Aerofly settings to keep it as close to the real world as possible. If you have a route set up with an ILS approach then airliners such as the A320, A380, B747, B777, B787, Q400, CRJ900 all tune the radios fully automatically for you. They should not tune any frequency however if you select an RNAV approach in the navigation menu or the cockpit (M)CDUs.

    And lastly there is the copilot itself. If you use the copilot interface then it will also auto-tune an ILS, probably even regardless if you selected an RNAV approach in the route, if there is an ILS it just uses that. This only happens if you engage the copilot though.

    As for the screenshot: It looks like the engine has "exploded" numerically with an N1 of over 2000%

    How do I fly an RNAV without overshooting the extended centreline? (ex. LFLS09 RNAV)

    Kind regards and safe flying.

  • Thanks for answering. Tried to proceed as described with the A321. Route: EDDM to EGLL and programmed the entirety of the flight plan into the MCDU directly. However, the ILS frequency was automatically tuned by the Co-Pilot. Please check the route below:

    Are you using the Copilot? Then yes, it will automatically tune an ILS for you, this intentional behavior at the moment. If you are just flying manually or with autopilot the auto-tuning should only be active with the assistance turned on or when the route has an ILS approach.
