If you're in the shaded portion of the localizer depiction, you'll get a left needle deflection.
If you're headed inbound to the runway on a "normal" localizer approach (front course), turning around doesn't magically mean you're now on the back course.
NAV CANADA will not be installing new Park Air ILS, for a few runway ends that do not support localizer
back course (BC) non-precision approaches (see information box).
I don't know where the KEGE localizer
resides, or how wide it is, but the chart shows it brings you aligned with Runway 25.
and glideslope signals can be affected by reflections caused by surface vehicles or aircraft near the antenna.
A common question is whether flying outbound on the missed a pilot should expect reverse sensing on the second localizer
. The answer is, "No." You are flying a backcourse, but you're flying it outbound.
You brief the plate for an approach and enter 111.85 for the localizer
Before delving into the incident, let's review the friendly localizer
. An antenna array is normally placed slightly more than 1000 feet beyond the departure end of the runway.
Southeast of the localizer
backcourse but it looks like you're northwest because the HSI Is set for the frontcourse.
Only one localizer
can be on at a time, and the Tower switches which one is in use.
Also, switch the DME source to Hays because this localizer
doesn't have DME.
If your landing runway has a localizer
, dial that in.
