ILS: ****** (Help Please!)

Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody.

 

I have been learning to land, and all was well until I started doing my pre-landing checks.

 

I have done a couple of successful landings after having spawned into the mission airborne, and on the airport page I get the ILS frequency just fine like this:

 

RWY: 9

ILS: 131.90 (or whatever)

 

However, when I try the same thing after having spawned in to do a cold start-up rather than spawning in airborne, whenever I get onto the airport page on the CDU, it says:

 

RWY: 9

ILS: *******

 

With asterisks instead of the ILS frequency.

 

Am I forgetting to do something on startup?

 

Here's my startup checklist:

 

 

Battery - ON

Inverter - STBY

Boost Pumps - ON

APU - START

Throttle Pinky Switch - AFT (Ctrl + P)

Position Lights - FLASH (Right Back)

VHF AM Radio - TR

Left MFCD - LOAD ALL

PITOT Heat - ON (Square Switch)

CDU on Right MFCD - PAGE

T = 4.0 - INS COMPLETE

CDU on Right MFCD - NAV

NMSP - EGI (Above Throttle)

Are you using the same airport when spawning in airborne and on the ramp? Not all airports have ILS

 

Nah.

 

The thing is, what you said would probably be the problem but:

 

I carried on the landing to the airport which had displayed ILS: ******

 

And I still got the MARKER BEACON signal on the front dash when I went towards the runway. It showed up twice (once for the far ILS marker and once for the close ILS marker), indicating that the airport did actually have ILS, but for some reason the frequency isn't showing up.

 

It's not just one airport, I've tried it with 2 or 3 now after cold startups and they're all showing the same thing.

Marker Beacon isnt part of ILS

 

Ah, then I've not been listening properly. :doh:

 

It's probably just that the airports I selected don't happen to have ILS.

 

I'll try it with Batumi now because I know that has ILS. I'll see if the same thing happens.

Just to clarify, for any future forum searches, you can view which runways have ILS in the mission editor. They will have the long, white triangle extending from the runways. Some Have ILS in both directions, some have one, others have none at all. Some bases will have the inner/outer beacons as well as ILS, some have just the beacons, and some have none at all. Just scroll around on the mission editor map and you can see which ones have them and which don't.
