Needles crossed? With my calibrator’s hat on, I can say with absolute confidence that the GP info you are seeing is junk after about 175ft. During calibration we hand-fly to 50ft and after 200ft, even on a CAT III, we stop cross-checking against the ILS GP information presented on the HSI.
PS. Are you always looking to keep the needles crossed after DA? What about offset localisers such as Lydd? Do you follow the lateral guidance which is happily diverging from the actual centreline?
This may be old news to many UK CAA PPL holders, but this is worth a read:
In short, without converting to a UK Part-FCL licence you are restricted to:
1) Only flying UK G-registered aircraft in the UK (no restrictions on Permit to Fly)
2) VFR only
3) Max. 12 hours (until when? 30th June 2021)
4) No cost-sharing
5) Some training (but read that link).
6) This exemption expires 30th June 2021. What happens then is anyone’s guess.
Request an estimate for the time to process your application with the CAA, and then triple it at least. I’m told the UK e-portal is for commercial licences only, but this may be incorrect.
It surprises me how many get used by so many pilots, but sometimes even by ATC.
For example “at this time” is always redundant. This is an interesting one because it seems obviously American, yet almost no European private pilots have ever flown in the US.
A colleague did a flight with a GTN650 driving a G5.
To play with the system, he selected an NDB approach. A glideslope appeared, which he followed, but after a bit it disappeared.
I have no more info except that it disappeared well before the NDB IAP DH.
Thinking about this, this may well be how +V is supposed to work. How else could the user interface be implemented? Either the GPS displays an explicit “+V” option next to each “official” IAP, OR it allows you to select the “official” IAP and then displays the lateral guidance and the “+V” glideslope. The glideslope will then logically vanish at the official IAP DH.
This also relates to this Q.
Ooops, while I didn’t mean to imply that in any way, shape or form (given that you were quoting somebody else) I can see that my post might give that impression. Sorry for that!
