When I go in and set my flight plan, set heading and altitude, and hit autopilot my planes just go crazy..

How do I lay in a flight plan from point A to point B and autopilot.. I’ve tried many times but I can’t seem to get it to work.

Thanks!

Welcome to Flyaway Cheers! , this is for FS 2004 but should apply to FSX. There is also great information in The Learning Center area of FSX.

Cool. I understand the flight planning feature, for example.. Earlier, I locked my heading into the autopilot on the airbus, I set the altitude and climb rate..

When I hit autopilot.. the jet just went out of control.. started doing loops and eventually crashed.

If you are you using the Flight planner to do your flights.

In any aircraft, set your NAV/GPS switch to GPS and on the autopilot set it to nav, then set your altitude as normal, then click the AP on, then it should follow your flightplan.
