Flying GPS approaches with non-WAAS Garmin 430

Asked by: 1393 views Aircraft Systems

Hi folks,

I'm a newly instrument-rated pilot. I did the training and have been flying with Garmin 430W for months. When I first did an RNAV GPS approach with a Non-WAAS 430 I found there's no precision annunciation shown such as LPV or LNAV/VNAV, but rather an APR instead.

This is when I'm getting confused when choosing from multiple minimums in the approach plate. I investigated Garmin's manual but didn't find a clarification. Can I simply apply LNAV minimums since GPS is providing me with lateral indication?

Thanks!

    Yes. If you don’t have WAAS with your certified, approach-capable IFR GPS, you fly the LNAV minimums.
