What means ISW

Recommended Posts

I did an autoland at some airport and entered the ILS data for the rwy to land on. ( frequency and rwy heading )

The freq and rwy heading were then indicated on the PFD.

Prior to landing I did a holding pattern and after exiting it the PFD now indicated  ISW / 225 instead of 109.9/225.

To my surprise I got the LOC and G/S and could land.

 

My question is: what means ISW and how could I get the 109.9/225 back ?

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

This is perfectly normal. When within range of the ILS signal you will see the tuned frequency replaced with the ILS identifier, in this case ISW. If you press the NAV 1 (or 2 if you tune the frequency into both Nav radios) speaker button on the radio panel you will hear the identifier in morse.

 

Rgds,

Hey Herbert,

 

ISW is just the identifier for the ILS at LSGG.

 

Oops, too slow :O)

 

 

Best regards,
