A question for the wise


Recommended Posts

And very easy and effective to use it is. Much better IMO than the A-10/F-15 system.

To be honest, I still got no idea how the ils works in the a10/f15 :| From now on I'll be known as the experienced noob :p

 

The ils in the russian jets is sweet, but I often ignore it when landing, especially on the kuz, resulting in very "special" glidepaths (ie either coming down with full flaps and brakes, or just making it over the deck's edge)

I dont know why but ILS always makes me crash. trying to follow the glideslope rigorously makes me overcontroll, Im better off in visual landings.

Me too. I got used to landing WWII birds in IL2 so I'm pretty comfortable with the mechanics of landing. Which means I only crash now and then :icon_jook

 

I've been playing with the LOMAC ILS systems for the learning value. I find the F-15 the toughest to follow and usually wind up ignoring it and going visual during the final 20-30 seconds or so.

 

I guess ILS really comes into its own landing in a pea soup fog or a power cut at the old airbase.

 

It occurs to me I should set up a test mission with zero visibility - if that's possible - and try landing IFR only. That should be invigorating :)

That's because one you're on the glideslope you're supposed to -maintain- it, not chase it. A touch over or under is ok, just don't completely lose it.

 

Once on glideslope, put the FPI on -2.5/-3 degrees on the HUD and KEEP IT THERE.

 

Perfect glidepath, no need to look a the needles for anything other than confirmation that you're on glideslope ;)
