Approach - From the Marker?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but could someone please explain what approach means when they say " 7 miles from the marker turn left heading 310 degrees......Approach ".

 

At first.........after I received these instructions I continued to fly my current heading of (250 degrees) thinking I'd hear the Outer Marker audio and that would be the que to start the turn to 310 as instructed by Approach Control, but I heard nothing so I flew way past my turn point.

 

Basically I need to know what instrument etc tells me when to make that turn on to 310 degrees so I can capture the localizer?

 

Many Thanks in advance

John

Sounds like the instruction is - 7 miles from the outer marker, turn left 310 deg to intercept the localiser for the ILS

It means : You are now 7 miles from the outer marker, if you turn left onto heading 310, you will intercept the localiser. So turn on VOR/LOC. and let it do its work.

Thanks Guys,

 

So basically I should be executing the turn the moment I receive the instruction from Approach Control (in this case 310 degrees).

 

Thanks again Craig & Ian for your help and advice.
