I-08: Non-precision approaches (LOC)
Localizer approaches, with vectors to final
Recommended aircraft: turboprop (Pilatus PC-12, Piper Meridian, King Air) , slow piston (Cessna Skyhawk, Piper Warrior) , fast piston (Beech Baron, Piper Seneca)
Pilot will fly IFR from KAVX (Catalina) to KSAN (San Diego International) to shoot the LOC RWY 27 approach with vectors to final. Utilizing the skills acquired in previous ratings, the pilot will use the TEC route system to file the appropriate route.
This rating has three goals:
- Focus on procedures for departing IFR from a non-towered airport
- Stress the point that the most commonly used approach at KSAN is a non-precision approach
- Locate and file the appropriate TEC route for KAVX to KSAN for the aircraft being used.
Other than making a safe landing at San Diego, obtaining this rating will require that the pilot correctly fly the approach's vertical profile.
