localizer backward approach (instrument rated pilots please)

I am learning about back course approaches and I have a question about this for instrument rated pilots or someone who knows about this. I know your glide slope can give you a false reading so is it still possible to fly those on a bad visibility day, and if so how? (I am already assuming it is not really possible)

The localizer can be subject to reverse sensing yes. Either you take that into account or you’re in an aircraft that can fix reverse sensing for you. They’re non precision approaches, so they have no glide slope. That means the minimums are higher than an ILS or LPV approach.

Short answer, yes you can fly them IFR (that’s why they’re there).


oh that makes more sense thank you very much.
