Suppose you have a flight plan that takes you in towards a VOR on one radial (let's say 007) then as you overfly the VOR station the flight plan changes your course to fly outward (on, say, the 111 radial).
Can you do this while the autopilot is tuned to the VOR as NAV1?
I find that the autopilot can't track the VOR radials close to the VOR station, so I have to turn off the autopilot, or use the Heading hold rather than NAV1 as the autopilot input.
Is this what real world pilots do too?
Appreciate any thoughts...
