Adelaide Non-precision Approach Night
The name says it all. Due to "ground works" at Adelaide airport all precision approaches have been temporarily decommissioned. Nothing but non-precision approaches in use for this event!
Whats the difference between a precision and non-precision approach?
Non-precision approaches provide lateral guidance (that is, heading information), but do not provide vertical guidance (i.e., altitude and/or glidepath guidance).
some example of these include;
- VOR - VHF omnidirectional range
- NDB - Non-directional beacon
- RNP - Required navigation performance
Precision approach systems provide both lateral (heading) and vertical (glidepath) guidance.
some examples of these include;
- ILS - Instrument landing system
- GLS - GBAS landing system
