Brief description of the issue: Been flying into Aspen with the LOC-DME-E Approach. Tuning in IASE 111.15 Nav in Loc1 mode and Approach mode - but the Aerosoft CRJ 700 does not capture GS. It should capture at 11700ft, and I have tried several times.

Detail steps to reproduce the issue encountered: Fly CRJ 700 from Aerosoft to KASE Aspen and try landing the famous LOC-DME-E rwy 15 approach.

Build Version # when you first started experiencing this issue: I have experiencing this issue 28.01.22 and some days earlier when I have tried landing in Aspen.

This is a LOC-DME approach. There is no glideslope.

MikeB54331 is correct, and you spelled it out yourself.
Loc(localizer) DME using a DME not an ILS with a glideslope.
RNav would probably be the preferred approavh. make sure you follow all the altitude constarints in the FMC!

I flew the Loc DME in Innsbruck with a glideslope. It’s not the same?

Localizer approaches, by definition, do not provide any electronic vertical guidance. If you are getting vertical guidance in the sim for an approach into LOWI it’s an error in the sim. I have flown the approaches in the sim to KASE but not into LOWI. I’ll have to give it a try when I have an opportunity.

At Innsbruck, Rwy 08 is a DME LOC approach.
A LOC DME does not have a glideslope.
You may inadvertently done an RNAV approach if you did Rwy 08.
Rwy 26 is an offset ILS approach, meaning the localizer does not come in straight to the runway, but on a slight angle

It was rwy 26. I see the difference now.Thanks.
