Favourite Approach Scenarios

Recommended Posts


Try the localizer for Runway 27 at KSAN. Set the ceiling to about 200 feet.

You might want to check the approach plate for the minimums on that one :)KSAN is one of my all time favorites!

Just tried the DCA 19 River visual for the first time. Best approach ever! I never had so much fun handflying. The Fix pages with DME arcs came in very handy though. I also programmed my legs page with Place-bearing distance waypoints with hard alt constraints using the recommended altitudes from the plate. I wonder if the pros handle it in a similar fashion. Seemes to be a smart approach to me anyway. I was also wondering what speed and flap extension schedule the pros use for this particular scenario? I tried using flaps 5 @ flaps 5 maneuvering speed from 3000 at the 10 dme arc but soon learned I should have been "more configured" for landing since it got a little tight. Anyway, thank you guys for pointing out this interesting approach. And go try KASE's LDA by the way!Happy landings,Victorhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg

Here's one for the Beech: KDEN to KTEX (Telluride) The approach plate takes you to the ELT VOR at 12,000, then 108 degrees to intercept the LOC for Rwy 9. I will suggest doing this approach CAVU first, then try it with some real weather :-sae Mike

Yeah,Gotta love the approach to RWY09. I flew there two summers ago for my honeymoon. Guess my wife was surprised when I told her to look out the right window and look at the runway. -That's the runway we are landing on in a few seconds, I told her. She wouldn't belive me until we touched down...Same aircraft in both pictures. Both pictures taken from same location, the terminal waiting to bord the flight home.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/112891.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/112892.jpgCheers,
