The slant visual range a pilot should see down the final approach and during landing.

descent should be used as a reference to maintain the ILS glide slope?
415 feet per minute.
480 feet per minute.
555 feet per minute.
805 (Refer to Figure 54.) With a ground speed of 120 knots, approximately what minimum rate of descent
will be required between I-GPO 7 DME fix (ROBOT) and the I-GPO 4 DME fix?
806 What conditions are necessary before ATC can authorize a visual approach?
You must have the preceding aircraft in sight, and be able to remain in VFR weather conditions.
You must have the airport in sight or the preceding aircraft in sight, and be able to proceed to, and land
in IFR conditions.
You must have the airport in sight or a preceding aircraft to be followed, and be able to proceed to the
airport in VFR conditions.
807 Assume this clearance is received: “CLEARED FOR ILS RUNWAY 07 LEFT APPROACH, SIDE-STEP
TO RUNWAY 07 RIGHT.” When would the pilot be expected to commence the side-step maneuver?
As soon as possible after the runway environment is in sight.
Any time after becoming aligned with the final approach course of Runway 07 left, and after passing the
final approach fix.
After reaching the circling minimums for Runway 07 right.
808 (Refer to Figure 55.) What indication should you get when it is time to turn inbound while in the
procedure turn at LABER?
4 DME miles from LABER.
10 DME miles from the MAP.
12 DME miles from LIT VORTAC.
809 (Refer to Figure 54.) What is the usable runway length for landing on runway 21 at PDX?
810 If the RVR equipment is inoperative for an IAP that requires a visibility of 2,400 RVR, how should the
pilot expect the visibility requirement to be reported in lieu of the published RVR?
As a slant range visibility of 2,400 feet.
As an RVR of 2,400 feet.
As a ground visibility of 1/2 SM.
811 (Refer to Figure 56.) Under which condition should the missed approach procedure for the VOR/DME
RNAV RWY 33 approach be initiated?
Immediately upon reaching the 5.0 DME from the FAF.
When passage of the MAP waypoint is shown on the ambiguity indicator.
After the MDA is reached and 1.8 DME fix from the MAP waypoint.
812 Which of the following statements is true regarding Parallel ILS approaches?
Parallel ILS approach runway centerlines are separated by at least 4,300 feet and standard IFR
separation is provided on the adjacent runway.
Parallel ILS approaches provide aircraft a minimum of 1-1/2 miles radar separation between successive
aircraft on the adjacent localizer course.
Landing minimums to the adjacent runway will be higher than the minimums to the primary runway, but
will normally be lower than the published circling minimums.
813 The RVR minimums for takeoff or landing are published in an IAP, but RVR is inoperative and cannot
be reported for the runway at the time. Which of the following would apply?
RVR minimums which are specified in the procedure should be converted and applied as ground
RVR minimums may be disregarded, providing the runway has an operative HIRL system.
RVR minimums may be disregarded, providing all other components of the ILS system are operative.
814 If an early missed approach is initiated before reaching the MAP, the following procedure should be
used unless otherwise cleared by ATC.
Proceed to the missed approach point at or above the MDA or DH before executing a turning
Begin a climbing turn immediately and follow missed approach procedures.
Maintain altitude and continue past MAP for 1 minute or 1 mile whichever occurs first.
815 (Refer to Figure 54.) You have been cleared to the CREAK intersection via the BTG 054° radial at
7,000 feet. Approaching CREAK, you are cleared for the LOC/DME RWY 21 approach to PDX.
Descent to procedure turn altitude should not begin prior to
completion of the procedure turn, and established on the localizer.
intercepting the glide slope.
816 (Refer to Figure 57.) If your aircraft was cleared for the ILS RWY 17R at Lincoln Municipal and crossed
the Lincoln VOR at 5,000 feet MSL, at what point in the teardrop could a descent to 3,000 feet
As soon as intercepting LOC inbound.
Only at the point authorized by ATC.
817 If during an ILS approach in IFR conditions, the approach lights are not visible upon arrival at the DH,
the pilot is
Required to immediately execute the missed approach procedure.
Permitted to continue the approach and descend to the localizer MDA.
Permitted to continue the approach to the approach threshold of the ILS runway.
