View Full Version : holding pattern and afs AP

04-26-2013, 05:41 AM

I was on AP flying the approach outbound from Koshi at the 5 mile mark. the 430w commanded the inbound turn but the plane didn't turn and continued straight. In the past it has always followed the 430w commands but didn't this time. Any ideas? The approach was activated. AP was in lat nav mode.

What color was the flight director ? How do you know the 430W was commanding the inbound turn?

flight director was off
the 430w showed the turn advisory message at the 5 mile mark yet the plane continued without turning
i did notice that the course indicator on the EFIS was pointing to the inbound course
i will go out and fly that approach again today as well as the ILS for Ken
strange behavior
