AVSC 3030: Instrument Approach Procedures
Terms in this set (18)
What is considered a precision approach?
Instrument Landing System (ILS), Precision Approach Radar (PAR)
What are approaches that are not prescion approaches, but have similar minimums?
Approach with Vertical Guidance (APV)
What are non precision approaches?
Those approaches without vertical guidance, but they have lateral navigation. Such approaches are VOR, LNAV
What are the different types of LOC approaches?
SDF (Simplified Directional Facility), LOC, LOC BC (Localizer Backcourse)
What are the different approach segments?
Initial Approach Phase, Intermediate Approach Phase, Final Approach Phase, and Missed Approach Phase
How do aircraft reach the initial approach fix?
Feeder Routes, Radar Vectors, or STARs
What are characteristics of the intermediate phase of an approach?
It aligns the aircraft with the approach course within 30°
What are the different sections of an approach chart?
Heading, Plan View, Profile View, Minimums, and Airport Diagram
What are flyable radials coded as on an IAP?
The radials are Bolded
When a pilot is told by ATC that they are "Cleared for the approach" what does this mean?
This means that the pilot can choose to execute any approach procedures into that airport
What are the aircraft minimums on an approach chart based off of?
The aircraft's landing speed
Is a circling approach considered a Non-precision or precision approach?
It is considered a non precision even though it may be part of an precision approach procedures.
What is a side step in an approach?
It is when an aircraft will move over to another runway that is parallel to the runway the approach is specified for. There are minimums for the side step to be performed in an approach. Aircraft must continue to have 1200' of seperation.
What is a timed approach?
The approach is timed starting from the IAF using TAS.
What happens when you do a straight in approach?
This is when you are guided to the runway by radar vectors.
What is a visual approach?
ATC can clear you for this approach when the ceilings are at least 1,000' and 3sm visability. You must have the airport in sight or the preceding aircraft in sight.
What is a contact approach?
ATC cannot initiate this approach and the pilots must remain clear of clouds.
What is a CVFP?
It is a Charted Visual Flight Procedure. They are established for noise abatement procedures
