This was brought up in another post I made: https://www.pilotsofamerica.com/com...ed-myself-the-other-night.98855/#post-2158918 Basically the question surrounds a strange clearance I got: Yucca Valley L22 to LAX YUCCA V264 RAVON PDZ PDZ270R V363 LAXLOC24R (LAX Localizer RWY 24R) In this clearance the Localizer is being used to define a section of the route. I know that localizers are used from time to time to define an intersection but is this normal in a route clearance? Or is this more specific to very congested airspaces? I've never seen anything like this. That intersection of the localizer and the airway is 31 miles from the airport. What is the typical range of a localizer?
