ILS FREQS on the fly

Recommended Posts

Might seem a bit random.. ATC gives me an unexpected approach.. Where in P3d can I find the ILS frequency?.. 

1...no GPS 

2...with GPS. 

 

Thank you for your help... 

Wayne 

 

PS... This is assuming I am not running PlanG in the back ground...

Map view… zoom in a few clicks until you see runways, click on any runway; either airport or ILS text info will display (depending on zoom level and exactly where you click).  Either will do as the ILS frequencies are in the runway table of the airport text.

 

…or...

 

Allard's airport diagrams.

EDIT:  Just discovered that, in the Map View, just mousing over the ILS feather will pop up an info box that includes the frequency.  You must have the ILS feathers turned on in the top button bar of the map view.

In the real world a pilot would have charts to give them that information so nothing wrong with using the in sim map.

 

Real world a pilot can also request that info from ATC if they don't have it readily available..

On the Garmin GPS 500 in FSX - probably the same in P3D

 

NRST button - > PUSH CRSR button (center of knob - top line airport ICAO will blink) -> Outer Knob Right Arrow (blinking ICAO will move down one airport - move to desired airport) -> ENT button -> Inner Knob Right Arrow to 3rd page.  Will have a list of the airport frequencies, including the ILS.

 

Obviously you have to be near enough to your destination airport for it to be listed in the top nine.

sorry for the delay, been a way for a few days towing the caravan into the woods at Longleat.......Thanks @allardjd for the info, I have never clicked on map so I was surprised by that, also thanks for guidance on GPS, I struggle with it for some reason but manage an FMC no problem.

@brett yes you are correct sir, I sometimes go swanning around aimlessly then to find an airport, in sim ATC will direct you where to go but don't help with ILS freqs etc...

Thanks both...

I struggle with the Garmin in FSX too, but have learned a few useful things that I can use it for without a lot of fumbling around.  In general, it's pretty much a mystery to me. 

 

As a side note related to the GPS, the Approaches list that I include in the airport diagrams is a listing of those approaches that are built into the FSX/Garmin GPS.  If you see an approach listed on one of my charts, you can expect that approach to also be available in the GPS, many with multiple transitions (which I do not list).
