Aviation Animation - How an ILS Instrument Landing System works - complete animation: Teaching someone how to fly an ILS approach is takes time. There is a lot of complexity. In this animation The components of the ILS are described and shown, both on the ground and in the airplane. The animation also shows how the instruments respond to both random oscillations and course drift during the approach, as the instruments provide indications to guide the pilot back on course. This animation…
ILS Instrument Landing System, electronic equipment that guides an airplane precisely onto the runway. Two of its subsystems, 'localizer' and 'glide slope,' are radio transmitters on the ground which define respectively the straight-in course over the ground and the vertically slanting path to the touch-down point. A pair of needles on the panel provide the requisite guidance. On my approaches, it looks like a sword fight. Outer - Middle - Inner Marker
