From this chapter of our Flight Simulator 2020 guide you will learn how to display ILS frequencies for a given runway to land on it according to instrument directions. We show you how to do it quickly in the game menu without searching the internet or specialized sites.
In aircraft with autopilot, you can use an automatic ILS landing aid, which is essential in very poor visibility conditions and is standard for large passenger aircraft. To perform this approach, however, you will need the frequency of a particular lane to properly program the navigation system.
Only some planes in the game offer to check this data directly in the cockpit, but it is a complicated and not very convenient process. You can do this much faster already in the planning phase of the flight in World Map mode.
Note - remember that not all airports have ILS.
Detailed information and ILS landing instructions can be found in the dedicated chapter of the Advanced Flying section.
Make sure you have the right filters on the world map enabled. Click the option at the bottom: Open the filters or press the F key.
Don't forget to activate NAVAIDS (Navigation tab)
With the filter on, a small square icon will appear next to a runway that you've clicked. Click it to view navigation data. To land with ILS you will need a frequency from the frame - write it somewhere on the side. A letter code, in this case, WAS, will also be used to confirm that the aircraft is receiving an ILS signal.
Something for the advanced players!
Alternatively, you can use real Airport Charts, which are free and freely available online. You can search them by entering the airport code and "charts," e.g. "EPWA charts." They are divided into many pages because other information will be needed to discern taxiways, and other to find ILS frequencies for a particular lane.
It takes a little bit of practice to extract the right data from the flood of letters and numbers. In the case of ILS, the required information is right next to the runway drawing. In our example - lane 11 and ILS Y approach have the same data as in the NAVAID screen - WAS code and 109.9 MHZ frequency.
