FS 2004 Instrument Check Ride

Does anyone have some guidance on passing the Flight Simulator 2004 instrument check ride? I have continually flown exacting approaches to SEATAC, including the missed approach and am always stopped and told to refly because I was below published altitudes passing both "Millt" and "Donco," although checking the progress report of the flight I have passed both checkpoints 1,000 feet above published minimum altitudes. I've even been given the "Descend to 3,000 feet" message passing "Millt." I have received the same message even when flying directly over these two points at exactly the published altitudes. Any suggestions?

Hi Retired,

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I urge you to give the instrument flight school a look. It's actually a lot of least until you try to get your instrument check ride successfully completed to gain a simulator certificate.

Dear Retired,

I should have checked the site you recommended prior to sending my last message. YES, that site had some great suggestions, in addition to letting me know I wasn't crazy. Again, thank you.

No problem capt. Glad to help. With your suggestion

I think I might just try to get IFR Rated. I have several Flt Sims and the one that I enjoy the most and is the best(for me) for realism is X-Plane. Have you tried the MS Combat Flt SIM Pacific Theater? really neat. I have several different versions of Warbirds downloaded when it was free so if you ever want to try one let me know through my profile E-Mail and I will send you a disk.good luck on passing the Instrument test.
