AI accelerates after ils intercept
« on: September 04, 2018, 03:07:12 AM »
Most AI seem to accelerate to 250kts and greater if they intercept beyond like 10nm away and begin to slow down only around 8nm from runway. Any idea why this happens, since they are all nice and slow at around 210kts  before they capture the localizer. Also is there any way to prevent AI gear extension until the glideslope capture point?

Would be great to find out the cause of this. Seems before they intercept the glidepath they accelerate then once on the glide they will bring the speed back. Wonder if Jan Martin has any ideas?
