Can You Fly The GPS Rwy 30R Approach At KBJC?

Boldmethod

Good luck!


  1. 1) The winds are favoring runway 12L. If you fly the RNAV 30R approach, are you able to perform a circling approach to runway 12L at night, assuming all equipment is operative?

    There aren't any restrictions that would prevent you from circling to runway 12L.

  2. 2) The local altimeter setting isn't available, so you need to use the Denver International altimeter. What will your circling MDA be? (assuming you're flying a Category A aircraft)

    According to the instructions on the chart, if you need to use the Denver Intl altimeter, you need to increase all MDA by 100'. Since the normal Category 1 circling MDA is 6180, your MDA for the approach will be 6280.
