Default ILS Question

Hello:

I am trying to make ILS landings. My VOR is tuned properly, but I cannot get the glide slope bar to show on the ADI properly. It just stays in the middle and doesn't move like it should - or at least I think it should.

I have tried pressing GS or Extended GS on the flight director, but it doesn't look right to me. If anyone can help me set these instruments to show localizer and GS bars on the ADI like they should, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

I'm guessing that you're confusing your glide slope indicator with the flight director bars. The glide slope indicator is the small orange arrow on the far right of the ADI and the HSI and indicates if you are above or below glide slope. When it is centered, you are on glide slope. You don't need to have the flight director activated (i.e. can be on standby) for the glide slope indicator to work.

Got it - thank you!
