Thread: Phuket international

  1. Cool Phuket international

    Ever see this airport in Thailand?






    Here's why it's called that.







    LOL!

    Localiser is correct.



    It's pronounced "poo-ket" btw...

    My neighbour has been there, he seemed to like it, he's always shouting the name out.

    Just for the record guys, it's pronounced pooh-ket
    Off-set ILS approaches are not unusual. For an extreme example check out the Rwy 32 ILS approach to ENRA, Mo i Rana, Røssvoll, Norway. It's at a right-angle to the runway because of the terrain, and this is fairly common in Norway!

    Yeah, I've seen plenty of offset ILSs due to terrain and like you mention in Norway which I've been all around to see that. But why is this airport's LOC just off center makes no sense to me. I'd have to look at LittleNavMap again and see if there is terrain or a real logical explanation.

    So question: How does one land using the ILS that's off center like that in very low visibility?

    I like to believe it's pronounced phuket because if I was flying that in IMC I'd cheat and use the GPS to take me in and watch my WAAS gauge for artificial GS. LOL

    Simple: you don’t.
    If you check the chart, you’ll see that DH is relatively high (about 500 ft) compared to other approaches.

    Okay, couple more questions. Where do you get charts from around the world?

    I see Trans Level and Trans ALT. What's the difference?

    I know MSA means Minimum Sector Altitude, but how do you interrupt the degree arrows shown?

    Another question. It says runway ALT of 3 HPa. I don't understand what that means in relation to the barometric pressure at the time.

    Some (like this one) can be found simply by googling.
    Or you can buy a Navigraph subscription.

    I see Trans Level and Trans ALT. What's the difference?
    Alt = referenced to local barometric pressure
    Level = ref to STD pressure (1013.2 hPa/29.92 inHg)

    Transition level is the lowest usable flight level above the transition altitude.
    What's in between is called the "transition layer"

    I know MSA means Minimum Sector Altitude, but how do you interrupt the degree arrows shown?
    Not clear what you mean.
    It just says that NW to NE from PUT VOR it's 4600ft (probably higher terrain) and in the more southern areas it's 3000 ft.

    Another question. It says runway ALT of 3 HPa. I don't understand what that means in relation to the barometric pressure at the time
    1 hPa = 27 ft (around see level)

    The most likely reason for the offset localizer is the lack of room for the array at the end of the runway, which basically ends at the beach.

    Thanks. That makes more sense now. MSA is MSL, correct?
