Hello,

I'm new here and would like to ask the following question. During raw data ILS with Track/FPA, you will normally have a blue (final) track line in the centre of your PFD. Together with the 'bird' you can easily correct track deviations on final. The green track diamond and final track (including the blue triangle selected course for ILS) on the ND and on the bottom of the PFD I have.
I have seen this blue line on a Wilco video, but it seems Airsimmer doesn't have this feature. Am I right?
See picture.

Many greetings and thanks,

Woeitinque

Ok, thanks. But does it appear automatically with auto tune nav aid ILS or do I have to manually tune to see it. Till now in all modes I didn't get the course line. It should appear in raw data with bird on and rest off. I have the basic version.

Thanks again.

No need to manually tune, do you see the track line with FD on and TRK/FPA?  

Also have you selected the track on the FCU?

Well, yeah tried all modes..but not with the track selected on the FCU..could be it, only thing left to try and it makes sense (could have thought of that as well :) ). Thanks, hope it works!

Kind regards.

Yes, it's there in both Track/FPA and HDG/VS, when you select the final track on the FCU, without pushing the APPR button and with FD on. But I guess it should also be there when you fly with FD off (as in the picture in my first writing: FMA empty, basic modes and thus FD off). Anyway, thanks a lot!
