Wrong indicated ILS heading at KSFO

@carmalonso @matt

Checking the Jeppesen:

LDA DME 28R, localiser 281 degrees

GPS Z 28R, final approach course 284 degrees

GPS X 28R, final approach course 281 degrees

Runway 28L+R, runway heading 284 degrees, so 281degrees is 3 degrees off set.

Looks like the LDA DME 28R is used for this and it’s been made an ILS.


now you said it! I had this prob a lot of times! I just blamed it on the wind. the ILS always seemed to indicate 3-5 degrees pff course!


I feel like @Rotate said something about this before. I’ll add it to the issue tracker @carmalonso. Thanks!

How does this happen the developers live in San Fran :)

hehe yeah we do :)

The way we decide if there’s an ILS shown in IF is if we find either a localizer or a glide slope… maybe we need to adjust it…


@Aernout according to this, 28R has an ILS

Oh wauw I see indeed @Swang007, that is very interesting why I don’t get those charts but that is another issue… Thanks man!

So does it actually have an ILS or not? We have conflicting data so I’m not sure.

No idea, is airnav trustful?

Flight ware has the same data and since @Aernout chart it dated July 2014 and these two are dated August-September 2015 I do believe it has an ILS Approach and yes the heading for both is 284


Not fixed in latest update

Might have been fixed here; @carmalonso?

Yup, he fixed it.

Thanks Henrik, both of the 28’s right?

28L is 3 degrees off and 28R is 13

That’s right. :)

Kicking a not-so-dead horse, the 28R and 28L are still off for using APPR, an FYI more than a complaint.
Also, 19L and 19R has me bury my nose gear in the ground, but not crash.
Use APPR on 737BBJ and is a fun challange to land, as controlling throttle is a skill (throttle and trim to land), especially in Solo setting to night and Wx to low visibility with adverse winds. Landing Aids (red rectangles) turned o0ff.
PHNL -Honolulu 26L is way off to the right by about 2 miles :)

KSFO is known for 28 L/R. APPR shouldn’t be used on a GPS approach such as the 19s or 26 at PHNL.
