I was displaced to the heavy jet and as a result I receive and extra 5 hours a month of pay for two years for accepting the displacement.

Just pointing out the 145 has been doing CAT2 for decades with no issues

I was referring to the actual autopilot working for almost 20 years.

I guess you haven't been on a 145 going down to minimums and at 300 ft AGL the cdi fully deflects and a 30 degree bank is commanded by the autopilot. Happened to me twice... I'm still cleaning the poop off my undies.

We have had a problem with the transceivers being exposed to moisture and causing the issues we have seen across the fleet. Last time I talked with the roa avionics guy he said the ground test is useless because you have to be in moisture to get the erratic cdi swings. They are working on fixing the fleet but unfortunately they don't get focused on unless they are written up.

Well, looks like our solution is to start writing it up. It really can be eye opening but just gotta kick off the ap and do some of that pilot stuff. I always wonder what I would do with a fed on board shooting a no bs approach to mins with it doing that

I wrote one up that was about 100 feet right of course at minimums. I generally hand fly anyway below 1000 in and just ignore the FD if it goes FUBAR. Anyone notice itís the ISIS aircraft mostly? ****ing ISIS always trying to kill us...

Why did you ever let the autopilot bank that far that close to the ground? On a similar note I canít believe the amount of people that donít have their hands on the controls when close to the ground.

Below 1500 ft we are required to have a hand on the controls
