You dig to remember that VGSI
is Visual Glideslope Indicator; among the several varieties found, the PAPI (Precision Approach Path Indicator) is the most common, followed by VASIs (Visual Approach Slope Indicators).
issued 100,000 shares valued at the fair market value of $3.
can only be received out to 4 miles, whereas the ILS glideslope intercept altitude is 4.
41-degree glidepath angle generated--and, again, the VGSI
and descent angles are not coincident.
Those notes on the AeroNav chart about the VGSI
requirement sure seem unnecessary and redundant.
Waivers for 20:1 visual area penetrations existing below the VGSI
obstacle clearance surface have been authorized for a long time.
The fact that Runway 22 doesn't have a VGSI
either is further cause for concern.
As the VGSI
comes into view, begin adjusting altitude before you turn final.
CDFAs can also be considered at Part 139 air-carrier airport runways with visual glideslope indicators (VGSI
) where the VDA is no lower than the VGSI
angle and is aligned within 10 degrees of the runway centerline.
You can get a better idea about the obstacle environment below the MDA when a VGSI
is installed at the runway you're approaching.
Bowlin's practice of beginining the "modest decent" before VDP or VGSI
intercept, your clear view of the runway will last only until a second before impact, when the runway and approach lights suddenly disappear from the windshield, replaced by the thumping of tree branches.
In fact, if the VGSI
and VPA differ by more than 0.
