S-Loc/S-ILS US Ops.

Could somebody please explain what the "S" stands for when indicated as above. This was shown on a US Notam. I cannot find anything like that linked to a Loc or ILS.

I believe the 'S' means 'Straight-in', as opposed to circling.

Did the NOTAM refer to approach minima (or 'minimums' )?

If so, they were probably trying to emphasise that the straight-in minima had changed, but that the circling minima were unchanged.

Better be sure.
When approaching DAM a few years ago, the controller mentioned...'cleared for ILS 23R approach, localizer OTS.'
The F/O switched to the NDB mode of ops, poste haste, and made a perfect ADF approach, using the DAL NDB.
Worked great...and he had exactly 75 hours on our heavy jet airplane (L1011.)
Make no mistake, he was well trained from the get go...and adaptable, all I had to do was ask for the NDB approach.
These folks are an absolute pleasure to fly with, because....they plan for the unexpected, not bit*h about it at the time, or later.

Use the six P's....

Works good, lasts a loooong time.

You should say NDB approach, not ADF approach.

"S" for Straight in.

Try this if you need a Ref.

If you provide the NOTAM, that may help as to what it was referencing...it was likely an obstacle in the Straight in Terminal Area MSL.....
