Unusual starting point for procedure turn

Asked by: 582 views , ,
Instrument Rating

The ILS 14 approach plate for KCXO in southern Texas shows that that the reverse turn should be started at or very close to a waypoint called CFBQR that is located at approximately 11 miles from Rwy 14. A note in the elevation view states:  ‘Remain within 10 NM’ (of Rwy 14).  How can this be done?

Thanks

    You are reading something into the plate that is not stated. It says remain within 10 NM. Nowhere does it mention runway 14. The 10 NM limitation is predicated on the FAF, not the runway.

    Agreed. It’d be pretty tough to stay within 10 nm of the airport at CFBQR(especially in a jet). However the 10nm is measured from the initial approach fix, CX outer marker. You must stay within 10 nm from there.
