AI Control Aircraft - AI Pilot is broken, no longer works as expect

My fighter jet just hit a mountain.

I did though have several planes, kinda, correctly.

and yes… something wrong with waypoints.

the route the ai is taking is not quite right.

could be sent my jet hit a mountain.

it’s an improvement and it does show that they are at least making an effort to fix it…it may take a few more updates to get it at 100% correct

It is incredible that after so much time something so notorious and to a certain extent important cannot work well. For now I can see that the landings have improved a lot, however, the AI ​​does not fly at the altitude indicated by the ATC, the takeoffs are a bit strange since the plane only rises a little, and from there it gains altitude (if there is some immediate mountain in front collides). Although it follows the flight plan, sometimes it takes the curves wrong or goes slightly off course.


Completely agree.

Perfect flight on AI until landing at KATL. Delta flight ahead of us was slow to exit runway so ATC ordered a go around. Engines throttled up, gear and flaps retracted, then we began a climb that that never ended. We stayed on runway heading and simply kept climbing. Shutting the AI off resulted in a power dive. No survivors! Basically, the AI is mostly unusable on most flights.

AI Control Is Still Broken. with the New SU9 update. when flying IFR the ATC still says Please Expedite Your Climb, it was not Fixed. and also when landing the planes it Hover’s over half the runway until it lands in the Grass. The Attitude is way off. Please FIX.


I finally downloaded the latest updates to give this another whirl. It’s still not right as the others are reporting. On a go around it executes it but then stays straight and gains altitude and just keeps going and going and going. Also, the flight plan only allows one to set the cruise altitude, but then the approach altitude, if not suited for the terrain, will cause problems. It looks to me like it has improved in terms of take offs and following the heading of the flight plan, but the landings and going around is not working from what I could see. What I don’t get is after all of this time is how is this feature is still worse than on the day of initial release. If I could just have it back to as good as it was on the day of initial release along with all the other new features it would be great. Maybe this is just something they have no intention of making work seamless.


The broken ai is worse than ever, complete utter rubbish. This should be NUMBER 1 priority DEVS not that you even bother.


When using Ai to land, the recent landings seems to be totally off. The airport is markt as arrival airport, but the lines drawned is not following the runway - and the plane seem to follow that straight line. Is this new, cause Ai landing have been good, well not good but okey before…

I can’t get the AI to do anything other than nose dive into the ground. And once activated, I can’t take back control. Used to be good in aircraft without an Autopilot, I could leave them to it and fly round taking screenshots. Now all i get is screenshot of the aircraft as it plummets towards the ground.

As people have said previously, stop adding new content until you fix the stuff that is already included.

I am retired so I have plenty of time to fly the simwhich I downloaded directly from the ms-store onto my Windows10 PC. I have over 3000 hours logged which includes the 1250 hours I lost for unknown reason some time ago. My issue is with the AI function from the pull down menu. I have experienced the same issues time and time again which makes me think none of the designers care about the AI mode. I have had so many fly into terrain incidents because the still AI does not look far enough ahead for the plane to be able to climb over rising terrain. Very annoying! I really love it when I am using AI tp fly across the ocean, and sometimes while still 500 to 1000 miles from my intended destination, the A320 or CJ4 will drop down from their 30k + altitude to 2500 feet and slow to 250kts. Talk about unrealistic. Less disastrous but just as annoying is the sometimes totally non sensical taxiing around the airport after landing and not following the blue arrows, assuming of course it actually lands on the runway. Extremely disappoint for an otherwise great program.

The GA AI pilot is also not very good on the ground, and will often hit other parked GA aircraft in the GA ramp area, not to mention other vehicles & ground crew.
