Tutorial: RNAV Approach to LPV Minimums


RNAV Approach to LPV Minimums | Straight In + Circling Approach | FlySimWare Cessna 414AW

By thecorporatepilotdad

From entering the approach into the TDS GTNXi in the FlySimWare Cessna 414AW, to intercepting the final approach course and flying an RNAV approach to LPV minimums, the set up of the approach, approach briefing, and concepts covering speeds and power settings to be flown are shown.


After the straight-in approach, approach categories and operations covering a circling approach are covered before flying the approach.


Whether using the TDS Simulations GTNXi, GNS 430/530, or other GPS,the concepts of the RNAV/GPS approach remain the same once the approach is loaded.
