Primary2

Think you can fly this ILS?


  1. 1) You're in a Cessna 182 10 miles from KCRP. Corpus approach says "Cessna 344TB proceed direct to the CRP VOR, cleared ILS 13 approach." What outbound radial will you fly at CRP?

    Upon reaching the CRP VOR, the feeder route that joins the ILS has an outbound radial of 233 degrees. This is denoted by the bold radial extending from the CRP VOR to the initial approach fix.

  2. 2) You're at 3,000' crossing the CRP VOR, and you're cleared for the approach. What altitude can you descend to?

    On this leg, you can descend to 2,100' MSL, which is marked next to the feeder route.

  3. 3) You turn right to heading 312 off the feeder route, flying outbound for the procedure turn. You must remain with 15 NM of which point during the procedure turn?

    The distance the procedure turn must be completed in is in relation to the final approach fix in this example. In the profile view, the line that represents the procedure turn (in this case the line that has 312 degrees) is showing you the reference point for where the 15 NM is being measured from.

  4. 4) You fly the approach down to minimums using the autopilot. If you're flying at Category B speeds, what minimums do you choose?

    In the notes it says "RVR 1800 authorized with use of FD or AP or HUD to DA" meaning that if you have this equipment and choose to utilize it to descend to DA, the visibility is decreased to 1800 RVR.
