• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

ADE Question about Instrument Approach Transitions

Hello all,

I am editing instrument approach procedures for my latest project - Hampton Roads Executive Airport (PVG) in the Norfolk VA area, which is where I am based out of in real life.

The ILS10 approach can be initialized from UBKUC with a 1-minute hold at UBKUC (crs 102, RH turns), after which the approach may be continued. However, when the approach is flown with JIVED as the IAF, the hold is omitted, as prescribed by the "NoPT" designation:

I wish to sequence my approach in ADE so that if the JIVED transition is being flown, the hold at UBKUC is omitted.

Currently, I have sequenced my approach in the following manner:
  • ILS10
    • IF at UBKUC
    • HF (hold to fix) at UBKUC, crs 102, RH turn, 1 minute
    • CF to YIBUV
    • CF to WORNI
    • CF to RW10
    • [missed approach as prescribed]
    • ...{JIVED Transition}...
      • IF at JIVED
      • CF to UBKUC

Could someone confirm if this setup will bring about my intended results, or if I should do something else (e.g. specify a CF to YIBUV under the JIVED transition)?

Thanks very much in advance!

The Transition is always flown before the main approach, and the main approach legs are *always* flown. So I assume you would have to make your main approach consist of the IF at UKBUC to the CF leg RWY10. Then there would need to be two Transitions, one with and one without the hold. One transition would need to created for when the JIVED transition is not used and would include the HF at UKBUC. The JIVED transition would be as you wrote it.
