How to Land an A321 in "FSX"


FSX is the Microsoft Flight Simulator X flight simulation program. Users can acquire multiple types of aircraft to fly in an out of a variety of airports in different countries. The A321 Airbus is one plane available for flying. Users can fly the default version of the A321 as it comes, or they can purchase add-ons to make the simulation more realistic and detailed. Landing the A321 has been shown to be tricky for some users.

  • Find the map for the course you will be flying in the "maps" section of the flight simulator. Find the Instrument Landing System, or ILS, frequency for the runway where you will land.

  • Press "Shift" and "2" on the keyboard to open the radio settings. Set the NAV1 and NAV2 active and standby frequencies in the cockpit controls to the ILS frequency for the runway.

  • Fly to the final altitude for your descent. Switch on the NAV and ILS and switch off "ALT." Slow the plane to 150 and switch from primary NAV as you descend.

  • Fly with the GPS until you reach the ILS signal. Line up the plane with the runway. When the ILS arrows begin to move, disengage the APP. The gear and flaps should be down, the throttle is reduced, and you touch down.
