Instrument Approach Procedure

Asked by: 1233 views FAA Regulations, Instrument Rating

Hi friends,

I have two questions 1) About the TPP and 2) About Instrument procedure

1) What's is mean the black line on the box here (Daytona Tower) : http://www.siz.co.il/my.php?i=xyvtqmnwyl2w.jpg

2) If  I'm flying with six pack panel on the ILS or LOC, how I can know the point to stat the circling approach without  GPS or DME system?

    1. According to the Aeronautical Chart User’s Guide: “The bottom row contains air to ground communication facilities and frequencies in the order in which they are used during an approach with the tower frequency box bolded.” Basically, they print a bold box around the tower frequency so it catches the pilot’s eye a little bit easier when trying to quickly locate it on the approach plate. Look at any approach plate for any airport with a control tower and you’ll see the same thing around the tower frequency.

    2. You can start circling for an approach when (a) you have the airport/runway environment in sight to continue your approach visually, provided (b) you have not passed your missed approach point and (c) you do not go below the circling approach minimum altitude at any time until the pilot is ready to make the final descent for landing (base to final). If at any time during the circling approach the aircraft re-enters the clouds or otherwise loses sight of the runways/airport, the pilot must abort and go with the missed approach procedures.
