DME Arcs

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm looking for airports which have a DME Arc approach. I installed the Bendix King Ki229 RMI from RealityXP Flight Line N . I've been practicing the VOR/DME Rwy 17 approach at Augusta State in Maine (KAUG) and the RMI is a great helpI'd like to try it with other approaches.Thanks,Jack

JackKRHI - Rhinelander, KAUW - Wausau, KLSE - LaCrosse, KJVL - Janesville, KHYR - Hayward, KFLD - Fond Du Lac, & KEAU - Eau Claire are a few I can remember in WI. I like to practice those too. Roman

Can't remember the specific Approach or anything, but I think there's one for Honolulu.

Jack,The airport at which I did most of my instrument training has DME arcs for VOR/DME rwys 4, 22, and 32. Very uncomplicated, take you from the airway to the intermediate segment at constant altitude:http://edj.net/cgi-bin/echoplate.pl?southc...al/MLU_vdr4.gifhttp://edj.net/cgi-bin/echoplate.pl?southc...l/MLU_vdr22.gifhttp://edj.net/cgi-bin/echoplate.pl?southc...l/MLU_vdr32.gifMy home airport of KGGG has arcs from both directions on the VOR/DME or TACAN R31 approach. Not quite as tame as MLU, you get lead radials:http://edj.net/cgi-bin/echoplate.pl?southc...GGG_vd_tr31.gifSt. George, UTAH (KSGU) VOR/DME R34 has a complicated DME arc w/ lead radials and multiple descent points, on the arc and after. That bad boy was used on my most recent instrument competency check. :( Of course, it will be easier for you, since you won't have to deal with one engine on fire and a non-functioning autopilot!http://edj.net/cgi-bin/echoplate.pl?southwest/SGU_vdr34.gifBTW, if you like the EchoPlate charts, consider a donation. Most folks don't. Dunno how long he'll keep doing it with less than a third of his bandwidth cost being covered...

You'll find every instrument approach in the U.S. at the NOAA site....http://myairplane.com/databases/approach/index.phpYou can't search for a specific type of approach (as far as I know), but you can just start going through the list of airports and you'll soon be up to your arse in DME approaches or any other kind of approach you'd care to try. :(

KWVI has the most interesting DME arc I have flown. I am not sure if there are any other DME arc approaches with a turn like this one.

Thanks Guys for providing some interesting approaches. I also found doing a Google search for DME Arcs provided a wealth of data.Fly high.Jack
