I noticed that an ILS approach is more or less a hit and miss issue in MSFS. In somewhat like 50% of all cases, I am not able to perform an AP assisted precision landing with ILS. Usually, the localizer is way off (meaning, I would land somewhere in nature instead of the runway) or the AP fails to captured the localizer at all.
Lately, this has happened at the following airports:
- UMMS Minsk (payware)
- Riga (freeware)
- Stockholm (stock)
- Göteborg (payware)
On the other hand, there are airports where everything works and I can perform flawless ILS based landings.
I usually fly the TBM930 or the CRJ, all drivers are up to date. Navigraph data is up to date. ILS frequencies are tuned correctly.
On my in-flight Navigraph map, the runways, appraches, localizers appear in the correct position. If I just hand-fly to follow the route on the chart, it gets me to my destination airport without problems. It is just the ILS that does not work in so many cases.
My question: are these frequent ILS issues a problem of MSFS or are there interaction problems between Navigraph and MSFS, or is it the fault of scenery designers? Or am I simply missing some essential element of ILS landings?
Any comments that shed some light on this would be highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
