Reference WAGGE TWO Departure (KRNO):
The use of the localizer (I-RNO 110.9) for 34L is used to fly outbound on 16R departure and is listed as “back course” on the DP. Yet 34L localizer is a front course approach---there is no published back course approach. The localizer symbol is also shaded as back course on the DP which contradicts the 34L approach front course shading.
Assume an aircraft is equipped with a standard VOR/ILS receiver (no HSI):
As you know using a standard VOR/ILS receiver (no HSI) when you fly outbound on a back course you have correct sensing. But in this DP case this is not correct because you are flying outbound on the 34L localizer front course and have reverse sensing. My concern is that if you are not paying attention one could fly outbound on this DP and misinterpret the VOR/ILS receiver needle deflections because of the “back course” language.
In summary, why would TERPS use the term back course when the front course 34L localizer is utilized?
Any feedback appreciated.
