So I just found this bit of info in the PF3 user guide. My question
now is, what should I set these to by default to make IYP happy and
have a successful landing? I was thinking maybe 2500, but I figured
there was options for this!
Approach – There are three settings for this option.
FAF Altitude is the altitude (ASL) you wish to be at in order to
capture the ILS. This can be overridden for individual airports if you
FAF Distance is the distance from the touchdown point of the runway
that you would like to capture the ILS.
Final App Speed is the minimum final approach speed ATC will give
you during your final approach. With this option turned OFF (not
selected) the Final Approach Speed defaults to 190 knots for jet
aircraft and 140 for props. With this option selected and the adjacent
value set to zero PF3 uses the Flaps-Up-Stall-Speed read from your
Aircraft.CFG file. If you set it to any other value other than zero, PF3
will add this value to your Flaps-Up-Stall-Speed.
I guess I'll ignore final approach speed, since I'll let IYP handle
that. The two FAF options?... no wonder why PF3 does final approach
eight miles out... it's an option that can be set.
