It actually looks like a swirly.
"1234 X-ray, cleared for the flush!"
If this was south of the equator, does it twist the other direction?
LMAO. It would. I couldn’t remember for sure and went to the crapper and flushed it to make sure it was counter clockwise here.
This look any better?
Yes. One of many features I like about Jepp plates
Not much room for error.
Lots of room, actually. More misconceptions than facts seem to exist about that airport.
Lots more pointy rock things than we have here in central TX.
I've never seen a plate like this. Two questions:
How to plan the descent rate without precise distance info. I can see the change in altitude is about -7000', depending on which arm of the spiral is chosen, but the distance along each arm -- that looks kind of vague, I'm guessing maybe about 12 NM starting at the top of descent where they suggest an altitude, so that an angle of maybe 5.5 degrees is required on the descent, which would mean maybe -1100 fpm at 120 knots. Does it pose a problem, for planning descent rate, that they don't provide precise distances?
What's the altitude correction for cold temperatures that's mentioned in the notes?
What's missing is the plan view. There's no plan view for the Visual because the assumption is clear and probably coming in from the NW (Glenwood Springs area) which is lower in altitude. But here's the Red Table GPS approach with plan view.
Miss the mountains visually, and use the same aiming point technique you normally use on final, except aim short so you can shallow out onto the PAPIs. Idle power and full landing configuration are your friends.
I have come in over the Roaring Fork River and landed. Fun stuff...............
Don't you mean profile view?
I Just failed the instrument oral with the first question.....
1. You don't need to be that precise since you're doing it visually. In fact the spirals are not meant to be exact tracks, just an approximation of your route when entering from various directions.
2. https://nbaa.org/wp-content/uploads...AA-Cold-Temp-Restricted-Airports-20191010.pdf Basically it means that you need to add altitude to segments of the approach due to the fact that your true altitude is lower than your indicated altitude in extreme cold conditions. "High to low, look out below."
Naw. Just means more questions.
Would have been more impressive if runway was depicted by a "turd", THEN it'd be a nice flush pattern
OTOH, they may be telling you what to expect on your vacation in this area
Once you land, don't forget to finish up with the 2-ply paperwork.
BTW...it’s a good thing @AggieMike88 ”leaned”, given the altitudes involved.
As others have pointed out, it’s visual.
Look out window. Descend. Don’t hit ****. Done.
