Boldmethod

Think you can fly this ILS?


  1. 1) You're in an SR-22T 10 miles from KCRP. Corpus approach says "Cirrus 803BD 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 turn left to heading 267 degrees on the procedure turn for 1 minute, and then turn right to track inbound on a heading of 87 degrees. If you maintain this heading, what angle are you intercepting the approach course inbound?

    To find the angle you will be intercepting the approach course inbound, you take your inbound heading in the procedure turn and subtract it from the approach course inbound. (132-87=45).

  5. 5) 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.

    The height above the ground you will be at upon reaching minimums is 200 feet. This value is listed just right of the Decision Altitude (DA).
