    I lied. I went back and looked and we did the ILS 4, which relevant to this conversation, has it's missed based on the localizer with no alternate.

    We also did the LOC 22 CTL, which also uses the LOM as a MAHP, but it's the alternate.

    I must've flown the 31 with my CFII as I remember those fix names.

    Yep; stopped reading too soon. I can definitely understand the confusion.

    Gotcha. I thought maybe you were talking about when a Controller just kinds of makes one up.

    You are correct, an alternate would not be required in that case. And you likely have seen some like that. However, they are falling out of favor due to flyability issues - as you can probably imagine, if you have to climb to an altitude first before turning around, then given a bad combination of geometry and wind, it's possible you'll be intercepting the localizer course really close to the localizer antenna and dealing with its super sensitivity at that point.

    Yeah. I guess it could depend on how brave the Flight Check pilot was:goofy: That being said, I’m still not betting money I’ve ever really seen one until I actually see one.
