Separate names with a comma.
Not really. The U.S. changed from it's own ILS criteria to the ICAO criteria in the 1970s or 1980s. That brought about the "trough" which...
For Runway 16L only? I don't recall.
It would look the same from the tower window, whether a PA-24-250 or a B 727-100.
Not sure. I believe it became an issue when they sited the new tower.
I'm going to rain on Russ's parade. :-)
The reason the CAT A DA is higher on the KSEA ILS 16L, is to protect the control tower from being hit by...
Be sure to have your Kodak with you if you want to take pictures.
Getting to the gate on that one is a good day.:)
Thanks Russ. My TERPs currency is waning. :)
I thought the policy was to not chart LP unless a 20' or more reduction in MDA over LNAV could be achieved.
LPV downgrades to LNAV. In one of those SBAS boxes you mention, normally the hit from LP to LNAV isn't that great. Often only 20 feet.
I guess Rickard Collins is no longer writing for them.
I stopped reading that magazine several years ago for the same reason. One article was so bad I contacted them. They were obstinate in defense...
Another difference: Because LNAV/VNAV uses non-precision obstacle clearance, the DA can never be less than 250 HAT (height above touchdown) and...
1. The FAF is named after me when it originated as VOR/DME-B 40 years ago because got involved with the region and proved it would fit the...
Both VOR/DME and Loran-C. Both sucked. Loran IAPs were worse because they had to be revised every 56-day cycle because of seasonal changes. Absurd.
Used in procedure design all the time.[ATTACH]
And, a few airways have PCG gaps. Doubt there any east of the Rockies.
Naw. Just means more questions.
Different point. The issue is misleading DCS information that is actually deceptive.
