Perform instrument landing system (ILS) instrument approach

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Reference books for 'Perform instrument landing system (ILS) instrument approach' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



1Select and prepare for the approach

1.1 The current Instrument Approach and Landing (IAL) chart for the Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach to be flown is selected

1.2 The instrument approach and missed approach procedure is planned

1.3 Direct entry to the approach is reviewed, briefed and evaluated

1.4 Entry via holding pattern is reviewed, briefed and evaluated

1.5 Minimum altitude, LSALT or MSA prior to approach entry is reviewed and briefed in relation to tracks, distances, timing and descent limitations

1.6 The applicable approach minima for the aircraft performance category and runway to be used is selected

1.7 Pressure error correction to DA is selected

1.8 The holding or diversion action if visual reference is not established is reviewed and briefed

1.9 Fuel availability and latest divert time is selected if required

1.10 Aircraft systems are configured for approach

1.11 Altimeter is set to appropriate QNH

2Monitor aid signal integrity

2.1 The ILS to be used for the selected approach is tuned and identified

2.2 The warning flags and Course Deviation Indicators (CDI) for both LLZ and glide slope throughout the approach is monitored to ensure signal integrity

2.3 Locator beacons for the approach are tuned and identified

2.4 Marker beacon/s are tested and monitored for visual and aural indications during approach

2.5 DME is tuned and identified or GPS configured for ILS approach if applicable

2.6 DME/GPS is monitored for distance indications during applicable approach

3Conduct holding pattern

3.1 Holding pattern at or above LSALT or MSA is entered in accordance with the specified sector entry

3.2 Holding pattern is performed in accordance with instructions in AIP, using the LLZ and any other navigation aids

3.3 Holding fix is identified

4Conduct approach procedure

4.1 Aircraft is tracked to the initial approach fix using appropriate tracking aids or radar vectors at or above route MSA or LSALT to intercept the LLZ track

4.2 ILS approach is conducted from the initial approach fix with tracking by reference to the LLZ and descent by reference to the glidepath

4.3 Marker beacons, DME/GPS or approved alternative fix are used to provide distance indications

4.4 At least one specified altitude check on glide slope is performed

4.5 Continued descent on glide slope to the DA is performed in accordance AIP

4.6 Landing runway is identified

4.7 Runway or circling approach for a landing is conducted in accordance with AIP after visual reference is established

5Conduct missed approach procedure

5.1 Conditions requiring a missed approach are recognised and missed approach is initiated

5.2 Aircraft is manoeuvred to Missed Approach Point (MAPt)

5.3 Missed approach procedure is conducted in accordance with the IAL chart

5.4 Obstacle clearance in IMC/simulated IMC is maintained
