If an ILS approach is selected on the NAV RAD page of the FMS, this button can be used at any time during the flight, to request the inbuilt Air Traffic Controller (ATC) to provide guidance. By written and voice instructions, virtual ATC directs the flight into a suitable downwind and base, followed by the final approach.

The button needs only to be pressed once. After that the complete sequence of instructions, that set the stage for the final approach, is generated by the FlightZoomer AI logic and issued, instruction by instruction, at the correct time.
