How do I activate ILS?

ILS activation

  1. Press the CDI button to activate LOC1 navigation instead of GPS.
  2. Press APR (Approach) mode on Autopilot for the plane to descend on the standard 3 degree glideslope path.

Does the CJ4 have reverse thrust?

Like earlier models, the CJ4 does not use thrust reversers. Gone too are the truly annoying windshield de-ice blowers, replaced by electrically heated glass on the front and side windows. The wings and engine inlets are heated by bleed air while the horizontal stabilizer is fitted with pneumatic de-icer boots.

How often is ILS used?

In most busy airports ILS approaches are used as standard arrivals every day because it makes precision sequencing easier. ATC can space arrivals on target generally within +/- 5 seconds off the ILS whereas off a very dual approach it can be +/- a minute.

What is an Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach?

Diagram of an instrument landing system (ILS) approach. The instrument landing system ( ILS) is a radio navigation system that provides short-range guidance to aircraft to allow them to approach a runway at night or in bad weather. In its original form, it allows an aircraft to approach until it is 200 feet (61 m) over the ground,

How are ILS approaches different from non-precision approaches?

Unlike non-precision approaches, ILS approaches follow relatively standard profiles. You’ll find only minor deviations in glideslope angle (which is usually 3 degrees) and final approach fix intersections across a variety of ILS approaches. You’ll most likely be vectored onto the final approach course of an ILS by ATC.

How do I create an ILS approach to an airport?

Write down the airport dictated in that clearance (if you don’t already know it) and the runway and type of approach, i.e. ILS (type of instrument approach) 9L (the runway). 2) You then need to go to your Map which is the little star like icon on the panel or go to the “World” menu at the top and click “Map”.

How is an aircraft guided when approaching a runway?

An aircraft approaching a runway is guided by the ILS receivers in the aircraft by performing modulation depth comparisons. Many aircraft can route signals into the autopilot to fly the approach automatically. An ILS consists of two independent sub-systems.
