As such, a tire market that was comprised of 100-percent bias designs only a couple decades ago has now moved primarily to radial for larger earthmoving equipment.
While radial technology outperforms bias in many instances (justifying the increased cost), bias tires, when used in the proper application, can provide significant cost savings and performance benefits over radial--proving the latest isn't always the greatest.
Create a fix to fly to along the airway and define it as, say, the AGC073 radial, say five DME from AGC.
The AGC 073 radial is part of the KAGC Allegheny 5 Departure which would explain why you were asked to fly that way.
Jeppesen charts usually spell things out in greater detail than Aeronav charts, but not so with lead radials. You'll see on the ILS or LOC Rwy 34 to Hays, Kan., lead radials appear for R-146 and R-168, but they are in light gray and not marked specifically as lead radials.
Lead radials must be charted when the intercept is more than 90 degrees or when mandated by a flight check.
A lead radial is published when inbound on the arc from HOGIR; however, there is not a published lead radial when transitioning to the localizer from ZIROB.
The lack of a published lead radial when transitioning from Z/ROB makes them correlate information to determine when they should begin a turn to intercept the localizer.
"We are excited to announce this partnership between Kinsmen Group and Radial SG," comments Mark van 't Zet, CEO of Radial SG.
"Radial approach appears to be safer, and in cases of acute heart attacks, it may actually decrease death," says Leslie Cho, MD, head of Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation at Cleveland Clinic.
Get the 385/65R22.5, load range J, radial tire with NSN 2610-01-436-3332 or NSN 2610-01-452-0605.
You'd want the aircraft physically north of the VOR on the 340 radial so you'd fly 160 inbound.
