Handling the approach
As you know, whether you are a real-life pilot or a flight simulator enthusiast, the approach and landing are the most challenging situations when flying an aircraft. This is also the case for FDC Live Cockpit! 2011. You might need to perform a missed approach, or you might feel like performing a Touch’N’Go at your favourite airport. Or you might find yourself a little below the glideslope, and want to climb a little to align yourself better with the glideslope. How will FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 actually handle these different situations to find out what you are actually doing?
Most pilots will at some point or another have experienced a missed approach. This can happen due to wind conditions, visibility, and other technical reasons. You will also sometimes have to perform missed approaches in Flight Simulator. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 detects a missed approach if you start climbing above the glide slope of the runway, if the runway is ILS equipped. Otherwise, starting to climb during the Approach phase will be interpreted as a missed approach. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 will in these cases automatically issue a Gear up call. However, you must manually restart the Approach checklist, should you wish to run it. You do this by hitting Ctrl-Shift-Space.
In case of a missed approach, the GPWS will be reset, and you will receive the GPWS calls again when you start descending to attempt a new approach.
