The Precision Approach SYSTEMThe Approach System is working with any Runway
. You do not need any frequency, ils etc...
Here we see the example images flying with a DC-3 from LOWW (Austria) to LOXT - Rwy 05.The Rwy 05 is just a GRASS-Runway you don't even see
You can follow manually the Approach-Heading or
with the Automatic
Here we are using the Automatic Approach
We start at LOWW - Hdg 293 - Destination LOXT - Rwy 05 - Flaps position, Gear + Brakes shown.
Distance to LOXT 21.9 nm - Direct Hdg 301°.
A virtual waypoint is created for any Rwy at a distance of 15 nm from Rwy and aligned with the Rwy!
We first fly to the waypoint, initial hdg 273° - distance 30.3 nm. You could first fly to any other waypoint of your choice.
Important is that you reach the Rwy-Radial-Alignment / Glidepath as it is with any other System.
Now we start the Automatic approach Heading to the Waypoint. Click on
The green light is indicating that the Waypoint-Heading is 'ON'.
Here we are at a distance of less then 5nm from waypoint. The automatic Heading is closing automatically.
We must turn to the Runway-Heading. As we are Heading 264° and the Rwy-hdg is 048° we turn 'right'.
When we reach approximately the rwy-hdg 048° our position is within the Approach-Area.
Now we click on
'LOXT' - green light confirming automatic approach. The Wpt is now behind us.
At the distance of 7,2nm you might see the Rwy. (without snow you would not see the rwy)
At a distance of 4,2nm - the Rwy is in front of us.
Now we are at a distance of 0,5nm. The Waypoint is exactly aligned on 228° at a distance of 15,6nm.At a distance of less than 0,3nm the automatic Approach system is 'OFF'
The System is calculating with decimal degrees (0.1 to 0.9) Here the last correction is 0,5° right. (see top left of Rwy)
You hear the Alert Sound. You could make a final adjustment before landing.
Try approaching + landing without seeing anything (on any rwy). With CockpitStatus Approach System you can do it.
CockpitStatus is only calculating with real Mathe Functions, not using return values from FS as it is with Gauges.
It took 1 year of programming and tests to complete CockpitStatus
CockpitStatus is really 'different'.
