    Dear friends and followers, today´s video is a very important topic, which I had to split up into three separate videos to cover the entire topic. How does an ILS work? One of the most ask question regarding how an airplane flies towards the runway without any visual aids.

    So the Instrument landing system is a ground based radio navigation system giving pilots a lateral and vertical guidance towards the runway as they are in approach in IMC (Instrument Metrological Conditions).

    To fly an ILS approach, the aircraft has to be fitted with an adequate ILS receiver to display and converted the picked up signals on the cockpit instruments. Besides that, you need the necessary ILS approach chart with important data like ILS frequency and identifer code, ILS inbound course and glideslope angle, given minimum descent altitudes or heights depending on the ILS category, and last but not least the go arround procedure.

    The so called localizer is an antenna array normally located beyond the end of the runway and generally is built up of several pairs of directional antennas. They send out radio signals in the horizontal axis of the runway.(This is very often mistaken, as many airports have to Localizer antennas, for either direction of the runway. So this plane right here is not flying in regards to this antenna right here, but to the antenna at the far end of the runway it´s landing on)

    Also important to know, at the same time the localizer transmits the so called ILS facility identification code. What is that good for? Because the frequency range for the ILS is fairly small, you could pick up the wrong ILS frequency of a nearby airport. Therefor each ILS sends out it´s own morse code, for example the ILS identifaction code for John F.Kennedy airport runway 04Right is IJFK, which will be displayed in our ILS receiver instrument or you have to actually listen to the morse code and compare it to the one on your ILS approach chart. Please comment below what type of plane you´re flying if you still have to self tune the ILS frequency and listen to the morse code.

    But see more within the video!

    Thank you very much for your time, wishing you all the best your "Captain" Joe

Space shuttle is a flying brick, you may need pitch 25 degrees under horizon when approaching runway. When you enter atmosphere, and you are "in the pipe" it means you are within the cone to glide to the runway.

Good explanation. Perhaps someone has mentioned this previously, but as a long-time pilot and avionics tech, let me correct a critical technical mistake: ILS signals (LOC & GS) are amplitude modulated, NOT frequency modulated. Just like aviation communication radios.

I'm pretty sure this has been said before but blue light plus yellow light does not yield green but white light. Please refer to additive colour mixing (light) vs subtractive colour mixing (paint, colored plastic foil etc). This is the reason why screens use red/green/blue while your printer uses red/yellow/blue.

back in the very old days, they had radio beacon guides for aircraft. The airplane had a radio receiver with a directional pointer on the top- it would home in on the radio beacon and the pilot would take on that heading that would guide him to the air strip to land....that worked until they replaced it with ILS.

It wont be long until there will be absolutely no need for a human in the cockpit whatsoever. Computers will capture the glideslope and do all the calculations on their own. They will extend the flaps, lower the gear register the winds, etc, and it will all be smooth as silk. Yes, there will be occasional incidences such as the miracle on the Hudson, whereby a human went against reasoning and saved everyone, but that will be extremely rare.

One of the steepest approaches within the CONUS is the LOC/DME approach to Aspen, CO, which has a final approach segment with a recommended approach glideslope of 6.59°. I nominate Sion, Switzerland (LSGS). Lugano LUG/LSZA has an approach of 6.65°.
