  1. 1) Does the LDA in this approach have a glideslope?

    Awesome!

    Incorrect. This approach has a glideslope.

    1. yes
      Unchecked Checked
    2. no
      Unchecked Checked
  2. 2) Why isn't this approach titled LOC/DME RWY 25 or ILS/DME RWY 25?
    Show Chart

    Awesome! A LDA is like a localizer, but it isn't aligned with the runway. If the difference between the LDA course and the runway heading doesn't exceed 30 degrees, the approach can have straight-in minimums. Otherwise, the approach only publishes circling minimums.

  4. 4) You're executing the approach at 12:00 noon and break out of the clouds at 8330'.  You can't see the runway, but you do have 4 miles of flight visibility and you can see the ground.  Can you continue?

    Awesome! This approach has a "fly visual" segment, where you must maintain the required flight visibility, stay clear of clouds, and maintain visual reference to the ground.  On a "fly visual" segment, the runway environment requirements of FAR 91.175 don't apply.  This approach only allows you to fly the "fly visual" segment during the day.

  5. 5) You're on the "fly-visual" segment, a little under two miles from the runway, but you don't have it in sight. Can you descend below the DA of 8330'?
    Show Chart

    Awesome! You can descend below the DA or MDA while executing a "fly visual" segment, as long as you have the required flight visibility, remain clear of clouds, and keep visual contact with the ground. You don't need to have the runway environment in sight.

  6. 6) The glideslope is inoperative on the LDA.  What's your missed approach point?
    Show Chart

    Awesome!

    Incorrect. CIPKU's the missed approach point for the LDA approach without glideslope.

  7. 7) You're executing the fly visual segment and you're about 1 mile from the runway at 7500'.  The visibility suddenly drops below minimums. If you begin the missed approach procedure, are you guaranteed obstacle clearance at 7500'?
    Show Chart

    Awesome! On a "fly-visual" segment, you may descend at your own discretion. However, you're not guaranteed obstacle clearance on the missed approach segment until you climb back up to the DA or MDA.  It's you're responsibility to avoid obstacles until you reach the DA/MDA.

You're Getting There - Keep The Minimums High
