Approach Plate Lunch
Analysis of ILS and VOR approaches that require ADF.
Date and Time:
Saturday, February 22, 2014, starting at 12:00 Pacific Standard Time Download Calendar File
Brian Eliot
Brief Description:
Instrument approach plates pack an extraordinary amount of information into a very small space. They contain all the information you need to approach an airport you can’t see, and procedures to safely land there – all on a 6” by 9” sheet of paper.

On Saturday, February 22nd, SCFC CFII Brian Eliot will analyze three separate approaches - SNS ILS 31, SNS VOR 13, LVK ILS 25R - and discuss what is unique or challenging about each, along with potential gotchas. These approaches are unique because they depend on NDB without being NDB approaches. They would be "ADF REQUIRED" and demand GPS in the absence of ADF, and would be prohibited as alternates for a GPS diversion from a destination airport.
