Flying a DME arc

Recommended Posts

Guest Ray51

I was flying to KLAS and selected RWY 1L due to the winds. Normally I kinda avoid DME arc's but I figured I'd try it. Having read Bill Bulfer's "FMC User's Guide" I set a fix at LAS with a 14 nm arc at the 140 radial. I set the approach RWY as 1L. I was using the LUXOR2 for the approach and left BAMAA on a 203 heading. There was the green dotted circle with the dotted line along the 140 radial. I followed the circle and there was the white dotted line for the RWY heading. Made the turn onto the RWY heading and and landed no problem. Had I known it was this easy to fly a DME arc using this bird I would have been doing them all along.Ray

I have a question on a similar topic:Is it possible to program the FMC to use a DME arc as a conditional waypoint, e.g. cross X DME from fix ABC at or below a specific altitude? IIRC there is a departure at LAX that uses such a proceedure.-Lee Barberhttp://home.nc.rr.com/uniuniunium/dvasig.jpg

I believe so. You would make a temporary waypoint at the need location. Then in the legs page you would assign a speed and/or an altitude restriction.

YeahEnter in for instance LAX250/10 on the LEGS page, then add whatever speed/alt you need on the right side...
