Once again the autopilot did an admirable job on flying the commands and following the ILS path down to near landing before I clicked the autopilot off. The CRJ does have one significant flaw in its EFIS tube display that shows the ADI and EHSI. You’ll notice that the altitude tape uses a number denoting thousands of feet followed by the tape that indicates hundreds of feet. When you level off at an assigned altitude, the instrument might be a couple of feet below the actual captured altitude, so even though the tape might be showing 000 it is sensing 990 or something like that, and so it changes the large number (the thousands number) to the next digit lower. So even though you are at the correct altitude it appears on the instrument as though you are 1000’ low.

In Part 4 of the review, John Reynolds tests FSX on multiple systems, and offers comments on it’s performance.
