April 27 (Wed) 7:00pm IFR Round Table: Back Course Localizer Procedures

Event Date: 
Wednesday, April 27, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Our IFR Roundtable series brings together advanced and novice IFR pilots to share knowledge about particular aspects of instrument flight. Each session focuses on one small IFR procedure or topic area and we spend time talking through the various challenges, definitions, techniques, and safety issues in that topic area.

This session: Back Course Localizer Procedures. Back course localizer approaches can offer unique challenges for pilots not familiar with them. Left is right? Right is left? How do I use my OBS needle indications? Finding an airport with a back course localizer is rare, so please join us for a discussion on this unique IFR approach procedure.

Presenter Brian Eliot is San Carlos Flight Center’s resident expert for IFR training and Garmin G1000 avionics. He has been flying since 1995 and received all his training in the Bay Area.
