the ILS approach on RWY23 ends in a hill.
Curiously I found no Approach charts for RWY 23. [Or not ?]
Is the rwy closed from the hillside ?
It’s not an ILS, it’s a GPS approach. It doesn’t take terrain into account.
Not an issue and hence moved from #support
Usually, the airport uses RWY23 for take offs and RWY05 for landings (because of Monte Morello, the hill/mountain).
Some videos show that GAs sometimes land on RWY23 though. Just search it up on youtube. ;)
Runway 05 is in use. To be realistic just approach from that direction. My chart provider doesnt have anything.
@starley got to it
@Starley Just found some, thxs.
Keep in mind that a GPS Approach does not take terrain into account and is represented by the white cone on your map.
@Bob_Robert you’ve quoted my words which is exactly what Seb said in the original comment.
I have flown into LIRQ before. Because of the mountain, commercial flights cannot land or takeoff in that direction. GA I am not sure about but I will listen to what @Starley said. I know that there have been crashes into the mountain though.
