Toncontin "toilet bowl" approach - How to find MELVO


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to fly the famous toilet bowl approach into Toncontin. According to the approach profile everything is predicated on starting the arc at waypoint MELVO. How the heck do I find MELVO?


It's not shown in Skyvector, Plan-G or the 737-800's GPS approach options for MHTG.


Also how do I enter the additional TG017 thru 14 waypoints?


As a Newbie, am I missing something obvious? Do I get out the ruler and protractor and estimate it from the VOR?

You could.

Or you could get a payware plane with an fmc that uses navigraph updates. That fmc will have all the waypoints in it so you can plan in that. Or will have the approach pre-programmed.

Pmdg comes to mind, maybe A2A, maybe there are more.

Hi Davefr,


The waypoint MELVO is about 13,1 NM from the airport, take off from rwy 02 once airborne fly heading 010 , in a couple of minutes you are there!

I use FSTramp, I like it very much, here is the link http://fstramp.com/ it is a bit expensive, but I think you can find in the web places where you can get it cheaper! in the site you wil find a "Try before you buy" link.


Fly safe!
