This airplane is unlisted
Auto Credit Based on klm747klm747's Jet Trainer

Update- Made it a circle with radius 10 miles
Update- Reversed Yeager approach so putting the diamond on the left line aligns you with the left runway (more intuitive)

    @CRJ900Pilot
    This is a first in the Simpleplanes community (I think). The ILS automatically aligns no matter if you're landing at Wright or Yeager. Both runways at Wright are supported, along with the two northbound runways at Yeager. Because the runways at yeager are parallel, putting the green diamond on the middle-left dot will align you with the right runway, and putting the green diamond on the middle right one (the ones with lines through them) will align you with the left runway.


    If the diamond is above the middle, you are too low. If the diamond is to the right of the middle, you are too far left.

    The slope in commercial aviation is 3 degrees, but it doesn't look right in this game so I just made it 1/10. If you want to go into the code, be my guest!
    But let me warn you: it is messy.
    The lines on top are your bank angle, 10, 20, 30, and 45 degrees.


    This would work in basically any airliner build. It's made from the 747 template, but it could work on any modern airliner really.


    P.S. The ILS activates when you are in a square of diameter 20 miles from the airport. I could make it a circle of radius 10 miles using Pythagorean, would that be better?


    Airspeed, altitude, selected ILS, distance from airports, fuel remaining, engine panel, autothrottles, climb rate, heading, compass, notifications, flaps and landing gear, and NO ILS indicator coming soon!


    You might not believe this, but I might have found a way to get approach fixes in SP. The plane could use calculus to fly to a certain point in the world, which would set you up for an ILS approach. It would also allow GPS waypoints that the airplane could fly ITSELF. I'm talking about fully automatic LNAV and VNAV.

    Check this out, just watch the two green diamonds to stay on flight path!
