    Tutorial: Localizer Back Course

    By thecorporatepilotdad

    This video tutorial shows tips to successfully complete a localizer back course (LOC BC) approach in the TBM-930 in Microsoft Flight Simulator. The approach is conducted at John Wayne/Orange County Airport (KSNA) in Santa Ana, California, USA.

    A localizer back course is just flying on the back side of the localizer to the runway, i.e., if the localizer is intended for runway 28 the back course lets you land on runway 10 instead. Unless your instruments have a BC setting, the needle deflections will be the reverse of normal and will also be more sensitive since the signal is coming from the near end of the runway instead of the far end.

    Navigraph charts are used in this demonstration.

    This is intended for Microsoft Flight Simulator use only.

      Nicely done. Judging by the way you explain things, you're probably also a CFI. Nice tutorial series.

      Thank you. I used to be a CFII and MEI but have not instructed in over 15 years. Unfortunately, I let my CFI lapse over a decade ago by my own personal choice because there was no need or time to instruct with a full time flying job.
