ILS approaches

Post by pflyer » Thu Jul 29, 2004 6:19 am

I was just wondering how many of you perform ILS approaches when using
FS9. Furthermore does anyone use STAR (STANDARD TERMIAL / ARRIVAL)
approach charts for proper real world approaches and departures. aeroplanner.com has them available for U.S. airports. They are in PDF form and printable
"7 0 xray winds [email protected] 12. Cleared to land runway 26R"........WHAT!!??

About the sharts, doesn't FS9 come with a program for charts?

Ya mean like that

EDIT: And as for ILS landing I use it only in emergrncy (low visibility)

About ILS approaches, do them everytime until short final, hones your skills. And not with the GPS, use raw data (needles, pointers etc.)

For more fun, search High Altitude approaches, usually start at 10,000 and higher. Designated by diagonal black hash marks on the bottom of the page (margin info).

Hold about 800 fpm on these to maintain glide path.

Is it possible to have charts come up on your kneeboard so you can have Loc. freq's and all pertinent info at hand in a breeze?

Instrumental

Whenever possible try to use ILS or VOR approach procedures.

Even if you are clear for a Visual Landing, if the airport has VOR or ILS approach system is goog have them set up before landing.

In real life thats an standard procedure, part of the checklist.

As for the knee board, one way is probably not worth it. It involves html editing. Basically, you would edit the reference or some other such file for the plane you are using, then you could bring it up when in flight. But you would have to do that every time. My advice to you is to get a real knee board and write it down. (a clip board works very well. use a small one. If you want, attach velco to pens and board so that they won't dissappear. You can also use an elastic band with velco on it to attach the board to your leg.)
