It’s great to improve my knowledge as such. When I’ve encountered something like this before all I’ve done is insert a fix around the VOR with the radial being the heading given in the gray lines and the distance being the DX. At that time, a total of 4, people were served. If you are going faster, you’ll have more bank. Personally, hand flying is the way to go. You’ll see it is a game of feel almost and finding that sweet spot.

During the Second World War operations ceased, but in fall traffic re-assumed, introducing the DC-3 aircraft. In other words, the last part is all visual. When the new airport is up and running, the existing airport at Heraklion will cease operations.

With an odd STAR and no arrival, I’m left wondering how on earth I’m supposed to fly the approach I realize it’s probably quite simple, and that I’m just not getting something here, but I’ve never seen anything like this before. Posted January 9, No – I fully understand what you mean by it.


On March 18,the first charter flight from abroad British Airways operated at the airport. Then, go down to kts. Anyway, I’m using the NGX, if that gives an idea of how much is to be automated. Your donation here helps to pay our bandwidth costs, emergency funding, and other general costs that crop up from time to time. It’s that green arrow. To visualize this, I’ve circled the lead radial and the inbound course: Dial this radial into your course, once you reach it, turn left 45 degrees to your inbound course ofwhich would be a heading.

File Library – What’s New. An easy way to practice? The next major event followed inwhen a four-engined DC-4 aircraft landed for the first time at the airport. The airport first opened in March Track the 20 DME arc southbound to the radial. In essence, all you do is keep the bearing pointer at or close to 90 degrees off your left or right wing, depending on the direction you need to go and any wind correction. Regardless, I decided to follow through with runway 9, and looked at the charts.

No – this is definitely very helpful. You’ll get a feel for how the turn required changes with different distances.

All you do from there is ccharts visually to a normal landing! EDIT to add shots: Load up, go to a VOR, and play around with intercepting and tracking an arc. The airport is named after Heraklion native Nikos Kazantzakis, a Greek writer and philosopher. Register a new account.

Posted January 8, It is located about 5 km east of the main city center of Heraklion, lgri the municipality of Nea Alikarnassos. The cost of this airport will be approximately 1 billion euros. Next, track inbound a radial off the arc, and intercept 15 miles and kts.


If you’re slower, less bank. Not only that, but there’s no IAP for runway 9. The whole objective is to remain at 12 DME from the station until you are to intercept the inbound course. We reset this goal every new year for the following year’s goal. Thanks for all of this, I’ve decided to jump straight to Heraklion to try these approaches before I even think about trying one in my flight.

This is just a small, difficult short tutorial via text, as I’m used to teaching this actually in the aircraft.

It’s a difficult concept to portray via text and pictures, but hopefully it’ll help! And lastly, you say that these are two ways of hand flying a VOR approach. You would of course lead chargs turn a little, and intercept and track that course inbound. As you can see in my 2nd screenshot, the bank angle was about degrees at kts IAS and kts GS.

This donation keeps our doors open and providing you service 24 x 7 x That is borderline cheating though The others seemed to think it was at D2. If you’re closer to the VOR, you’ll have more bank, since the arc, or circle, is smaller.

Today, when planning my flight form Dusseldorf to Heraklion, I encountered some approaches that I didn’t recognize.
