View Full Version : ILS Coverage - Europe

14th May 2002, 17:41
AIC 34/1997 (Pink 141) explains the ILS coverage in azimuth & elevation for the UK. http://www.ais.org.uk/uk_aip/pdf/aic/4P141.PDF

I'm trying to find the same information for European countries under JAROPS but have drawn a blank on their site. Can anyone help ?

The UK AIC simply reiterates the ICAO standards for ILS, its not UK specific. All countries ILS should conform to the coverage standards contained in ICAO Annex 10 Attachment C figures C-7 through C-12, which are those shown in the AIC with a couple of others for good measure.

Annex 10 is the bible for ground based radionav systems, as opposed to JAR-OPS which is really an airframers/airlines doc. You can get a copy from the CAA library at Gatwick or you can purchase it online from Westward Digital.

gnss thank you for the reply, that's tidied that one up for me. And next time I promise to read the first line of the aic more carefully. Cheers, Scally
