This video is 4:11 long but itREALLY GETS GOOD at the 2:40 mark when the airplane entersthe clouds. This video gives EVERYONE an idea of what the Pilotsees and does on an Instrument approach. I'm sure that you'll notonly like it, learn from it........but the scenery itself (New Zealand)is beautiful. Burro, BobSubj: Instruments-GPS
This is an interesting head camera video from a pilot flying a new
instrument approach into Queenstown, New Zealand. A straight-in approach
like this without the nearby mountains is not unusual, especially in the
tough weather of Europe; but a double-curved one like this with nearby
terrain used to be something countries would not even publish, let alone
authorize. The key here is development of GPS technologies.
This flick has gone viral among aviators. It's worth viewing.
You must have total faith in your instruments, and yourself, to properly fly
