Hi Peter,

Am trying the first exercise - changing runways on approach.

I've been through your video and made notes. All is well until I try to select the new ILS approach in the FMS - I select ILS27R. The ND updates with the new information, but the NAV radios don't update - I still have the freq. for ILS27L in there.

I've been trying to figure it out but cannot get it to work. Probably something simple but I can't for the life of me get it. Here's what I do:

I'm at 2500ft, established on the localiser for 27L, on the G/S with 'APP' selected in the MCP.

Preset HDG to 300
Select DEP/ARR page
Gear down
ALT SEL up and out of the way to 3000
Both FDs off (PNF's is set automatically as per 'silent tasks' in Situation/Human/Pilot page)
AP disconnected (press A twice)
FDs back on (as per above, PNF's is set automatically)
AP reconnected (HDG HOLD and V/S annunciated)
Press HDG SEL
FMS - press L4 for ILS27R
Press EXEC once lit

At this point the ND updates to show ILS27R, but the freq. in the NAVRAD page is still on ILS27L. If I update it manually, all goes well -

Adjust V/S if nec.
Arm LOC once new ILS identified
Select landing flap
Speed to flap bug or approach ref + 5
Arm APP once LOC active
Reset ALT SEL to TOGA value
Checklist

I then proceed to the usual controlled crash.

But I can't get it to update to the new ILS freq. automatically.

I'll wager a large G&T I'm doing something daft but what am I missing?

Thanks,

Roger.

Hi Roger,

if your ILS has been manually tuned (check for "M" suffix) it won't autotune for the new selected approach. First return to the autotuning mode by deleting the manual entry with the DEL key.

Thanks Hardy - that did it! Took me a minute to figure I had to disengage APP and go back to HDG SEL and another pitch mode, but after that it went great - funny how one doesn't notice these small things, like a little 'M' after the entry in the NAVRAD page!

Just had a couple of go's at it - set myself up a situation on approach to EGLL. Took a few tries at that to get everything properly configured (still have to remember to advance the checklist to the appropriate phase1).

Great fun and very rewarding after a few practice tries to get the sequence of actions right and a successful outcome!

Thanks Peter and Hardy for the tutorial and the help :-)

Cheers,

Roger.

Hi Roger
Sorry - I’ve only just seen this - glad you figured it out - it’s only an exercise in control of the automatics really - when all else fails just point it at the runway!
Cheers,
Peter

Heh! Thanks Peter - Yep, using the tutorial as intended getting myself more familiar with the electronics. Great stuff. Also useful for learning about situation files etc.
