Here's my method, using either the Boeing's or a private jet.(Any aircraft with an autopilot and an approach button)
After I get my inital instruction on which runway I'm gonna land at, I go to "map" and find the frequency. I then dial this into the NAV 1 radio and activate the NAV1 button, and the three on the far right : "mkr, dme, adf".
Then I program the GPS. Select the runway by pressing "procedure" button, the last one on the right, activate approach, then select "activate vectors to final".
I then hear a series of beeps.
Once I hear ATC say the following :"You are 20 miles northwest, turn left heading ________.Descend and maintain ____________. Contact tower on _______" I press the APP (Approach) button. The plane will now turn and line itself up with the runway. As I get closer, the altitude button will turn itself off and the plane is now on ILS. All I do at this point is maintain my speed, and when I'm about 200 ft above the runway, I disengage autopilot and land by hand. 9 times out of 10, it's a pretty decent landing.
