For the life of me i cannot get the aircraft to follow a flight plan. I've read the manual in relation to autopilot but cant seem to get it to follow any flight.Any help would be appreciated.

i think it cant follow a flightplan! you need to input it by hand with the headingbug set to the Brg of the leg you want to fly.

Track is for radio nav. Turn Track OFF, and with a/p on and engaged use the button on the top left Autopilot Heading Selector (Manual, p.78) to engage heading mode.

I've just tried this for the first time today and had similar problems. The pointer to p78 of the manual was useful as I'd not seen that instrument before.. it sits behind the yoke and without the benefit of TrackIR, is inaccessible. I can't find a way to get at it anyway

click on the base off the yoke to toggle yoke visable or not visable. then you can acces the instrument.

you can track the GPS route by using the default FSX autopilot fonction.
In your FSX control setting, add a key for the "Nav/GPS" toggle fonction switch & the track switch on the Canberra autopilot panel will become active. Then you can follow your flight plan...
This tip is avalaible for all add-on without autopilot. Just control that "autopilot=1" in the aircraft.cfg !

Ciao Viva & Have Fun !
