SIGONELLA airport - IAP(Instrument Approach Procedure) chart

Post by eystratiou » 2011-05-20, 08:12:08 PM

Hi guys .
IAP (Instrument Approach Procedure) chart for Sigonella airport at Sicily-Italy of Balkans theater is ready .
Below you can see a sample of chart :
Image

Pay attention to these notes :
1) It is critical that at FAF waypoint be at precise altitude with landing gears down and air brakes extended . Then at FAF DME start your descent with 2.5 deg. There is always an intermediate waypoint between FAF and last waypoint (that you turn to final approach course) just for altitude check and minor corrections .
2) In order to have a perfect alignment with runway centerline and because of fact that the DME of the last waypoint has a decimal digit , you must insert GPS coordinates of TACAN station over a steerpoint , so you can turn to final approach course aligned with runway centerline at exactly DME of last waypoint .
You can download the chart from here :
http://www.f16e.com/theaters.html
from section "Balkans Theater" -> file "Balkans IAP Approach Chart Package" .

Package also includes kneemap , TACAN list , IAP General Info Balkans (pdf) and 12 previous IAP charts .
Your comments and possible corrections will be welcomed from me . You can also e-mail me at : neystratiou@gmail.com
Have safe and precise landings at Sigonella airport .

Thanks a lot for this too, eystratiou!

I made some tests in FF Balkans v.1.1. Please check your PM inbound, by the way ... :wink:
