Hi! Relatively new flyer here, how far out do I enable the ILS on my NAV? Do I enable it when I get inside the red cone or a little bit far out? Sorry if it’s in the wrong category, idk where to put it. Will appreciate any assistance, thanks!
Around 27 nautical miles out! The little red cone is also a good idea, only if you have fixes plotted on the alignment of the runway, or if your far out enough to intercept it.
Does the distance from the airport differ from each airport? I mean, do i trigger the ILS always 27 NM no matter the airport or does it differ?
More information can be found in the topic below:
How to Tune into an ILS Approach?
Important note regarding ILS tuning:
You must be within a
in order to successfully tune in the ILS frequency. Outside of this range you will not be able to tune in the runway. I would highly suggest creating a FPL that has a GPS route from the end of the cone to the runway threshold and use that as a guide to align you with the runway. This will not be as accurate as the ILS but will keep you going in the correct direction. 27nm radius of the airport
