My First ILS Approach

You are a beginner pilot just getting familiar with Aerofly FS 2. You made some VFR flights and tried some landings. Note - VFR = Visual Flight Rules; pilot operates aircraft under visual conditions.

Now let’s do the next step and try an ILS approach. Note - ILS = Instrument Landing System.

In this more complex tutorial we gather some preflight information, use both the location and navigation maps, adjust aircraft instruments, and finally do a manual approach assisted by ILS. Note - In this tutorial you will land without the assistance of autopilot.

Preflight Preparation

For this tutorial we will be flying into San Francisco International Airport (KSFO), and want to approach runway 19L.Open the site http://airnav.com/airports/ and search for San Francisco, SFO, or KSFO. Note - KSFO is the ICAO code of the airport, also shown in Aerofly FS 2.

The KSFO page tells you everything that you need to know about the airport.
