ILS intercept off by 30 feet or so

Recommended Posts

Ok folks - Im sure this has happened to someone else and Im hoping somebody knows if there is a fix. It has happened to me at a couple of different airports and it drives me crazy.Here it is..... Approaching the ILS runway 15R at KBOS everything is fine - from 1-2 miles out I look perfectly lined up. As approach it becomes obvious to me that Im about 30 feet or so to the right of the runway touchdown mark. Whats interesting is - If I circle around and land on the ILS at runway 4R - same airport - Im perfectly on the mark. Is there an updated ILS frequencies that I can use to update FS2k2? Does this happen to anyone else?Help me PLEASE ! Thanks

Hey there.. The only thing that I know is that rwy centerline is offset by 1 degree.. so you should have it set for 151 degrees on the course heading. Also take in account for any crosswinds you would have to add more airspeed to compensate.. I hope this helped some.. CheersRoderic

15R at KBOS has an offset ILS localizer. You can see this if you open the airport in AFCAD and view the navaids.To quote from a post by jase439 from October 14th, "Localizers are often offset (positioned to the left or right of the runway threshold) and/or not parallel with the runway axis. This can be for spacing reasons, terrain avoidance, visibility, etc...For example, KBOS 15R has a localizer heading of 150, but the runway is 151.1. You'll have to check the published procedure for the runway in question."You can view the airnav stats for KBOS at: http://www.airnav.com/airport/KBOSYou can view the 15R approach plate at: http://www.myairplane.com/databases/approa...t/BOS_ir15R.pdfBoyd BarkerSenior Command CaptainKBOS Hub ManagerWestWind Airlineshttp://home.houston.rr.com/checklist/DFexperience.jpghttp://home.houston.rr.com/checklist/checklist.htmlMy DF737 Around the World Adventure: http://home.houston.rr.com/checklist/aroundtheworld.html
