What is the reason to have an VDP on a non precision approach?

They are apart of an ILS and tend to be 3°-6°
What is a Localizer Type Directional Aid (LDA) approach?
It is an approach that is located more than 30° of the runway. They may sometimes have a glideslope.
What are Simplified Directional Facilities (SDF) approaches?
What is a Localizer Back Course (LOC BC)?
It is when there may still be guidance from the front course Localizer, but with reverse sensing.
How do you know whether there is a front course or back course on the approach?
The front course feather on the approach chart will be striped on one half and the localizer backcourse feather on the approach chart is blacked out on one side of the feather.
The Localizer starts at the threshold of the approach end of the runway. This is also where the...
Backcourse of the localizer begins. It is not at the other end of the runway.
What is a stabilized approach?
