Turn Back, fly over the NDB Beacon & fly outbound
at 100 degrees
||Click the Manual Turn knob
on the auto pilot to perform a right turn of around 20
The Attitude Indicator shows the bank angle across the
bottom in 10 degree increments.
||We are aiming to stop turning when we are
pointing directly at the NDB beacon. That is when
the red ADF needle is pointing straight up.
To settle onto this heading smoothly, click the auto pilot's
Manual Turn knob back to the central position 10 degrees
before the heading we want.
So looking at the ADF indicator here, we take off the
turn when we hit the 95 degrees mark.
We are now settled on the correct heading to intercept
the NDB beacon.
Speed should still be between 200 & 210 kt, at an
altitude of 2500 ft.
When we reach the NDB beacon we need to fly off outbound
on a heading of 100 degrees.
As you reach the beacon & go past it, the red arrow
will start to swing around.
When it does this we need to have turned onto a heading
of 100 degrees, again by using the A/P manual turn.
Once past the beacon, the red arrow should be pointing
straight down. (If you are being really accurate
you can adjust your position so that it is)
We now need to fly out 9 nautical miles & then turn
back onto the ILS approach. But we need to slow
down before the turn, so we will need to select 20 degrees
of flap at around 6 nm out from Brize Norton.
||Since we are using the default
Microsoft scenery and we are actually reading our DME
distance from Fairford, we will need to select take off
flaps (20 deg) when the NAV2 DME is reading around 13.5
Note - If we were using Nick Black's
scenery we would be looking
for 6.0 on the NAV1 DME instead.
Keep the power setting the same & let the speed bleed
off. We are aiming to settle at a speed of 160 kt,
so when we drop to around 170 kt, start putting in a little
For a steady 160kt, we will probably need around 82% RPM.
