Part of the Autoland process is that the system will squawk 7700, I believe. In that case, plenty of people will get alerts through FlightRadar24 and other sites. I'm sure one of those models squawking 7700 will get plenty of attention, here and elsewhere.


Does it make any radio calls?

Its all marketing and aimed at selling to the wives.
Like other said it as never been used and will rarely be used.

What bothers me is it cannot be tested in flight unless you activate it with 7700 squawk and all.

I know of a few TBM pilots that accidentally activate it and it took over the aircraft.
They were able to deactivate it and resume normal flight. Not sure if it had sent the 7700 code.

In the TBM 940 the deicing is automatic so that wont be an issue.

There is a lot of systems and automation that are never used for this and will be costly to maintain over the years.

I know endless debates in this forum about the chute but very less about autoland?

As far as I know, certified now in the Vision Jet, TBM940 and the M600?
All upper class $$$$$ and mainly owner flown planes!

Does anyone knows the limitations of autoland?

The only thing I know out of brochures and you tube videos, that it will do all the necessary things to land the plane safely, if you are enroute, get incapacitated and a passenger pushes the button.

Are there any altitude limitations like published for a chute pull?

If you are on an ILS approach, maybe only 1000 or 500ft to go and you push that button?
Will it abort the approach, climb and search for a suitable airport with a GPS approach?
What happens in such a situation?

Will it even land in 0/0 conditions?

Would appreciate more information about the system limitations, to get a better picture about the value.
