TBM 930 - landing Sion

Sion in Switzerland rwy 25 is a challenging approach, but I never reached the runway. CTD at apr. 6000 feet. Happened twice.

Hey @JorgenJuul - Sorry to see you having this issue. Below is a general post on sorting through CTD issues. Hopefully you can find something helpful.

There are quite a few threads on the forums where people are reporting crash to desktops and it seems there is no one single cause. Reports indicate that the ‘fix’ for one user doesn’t work for another user etc. Tracking down the cause is very time consuming. I suggest maybe using the forum search function to find other threads for this issue. If you wanted to be brave, even though it is time consuming, you could take the plunge and go ahead and reinstall windows. It might actually save you time in the long run. However, it doesn’t guarantee that it will solve your problem if the CTD is caused by hardware weaknesses (unlikely but possible) or driver issues.

To get you started, here are two links (Link1, Link2) to existing mega-threads about CTDs.

It would also be a good idea to check out the known issues post to see if you are affected by one of those.

For advanced troubleshooting, if none of the other fixes seem to work, then there may also be some useful information contained in this detailed thread: Community Troubleshooting Guide.

Hello Sartanius
Normally I don’t experience CTD, so I think it’s odd that it happens at excatly the same spot 8 miles east of Sion.

In the TBM there is some sort of bug in the autopilot when it is switched into approach mode. Like you have no had many CTD or issues but this bug I have had and quite a few others as well. You can search it on the forum. Make a ticket on Zendesk to visualize the issue.
