Here’s one of my favourite approaches, one that I discovered while still using the free app, but even after going pro and having the world to explore, I still come back here to South Lake Tahoe.
Technically its a traditional DME approach with VOR referenced fixes… But I played it easy by converting it into a GPS approach, as the fixes are in the IF database. It’s an offset approach due to the hills close on the left, so the last bit is a visual skip to the left to line up.
It’s fun for the scenery, but also the angles and anticipation of the turn towards the IAF, across the line of hills with the expanse of the lake beckoning.
I hope you enjoy this taster of the LDA Rwy 18 approach at Lake Tahoe, and better still take a shot at it yourself!
