Guided Visual Approach

Explore The New Experience With Us.jpg

"The biggest benefit of a guided visual approach is its ability to enhance understanding, communication, and problem-solving through the use of visual aids, such as diagrams, charts, and images".

A guided visual approach is a visual approach retrieved from a navigation data base using the aircraft’s automation systems following prescribed tracks, altitudes and speeds to aid pilots in landing safely on a runway meeting all stabilization criteria.  Additionally, ATC treat it as a ‘Visual STAR’ and can easily integrate it into normal traffic flows and sequences.  


The VGA is flown using the autopilot and will position the aircraft on final approach at the correct height and speed from which a normal landing can be made following the correct descent rate and speed to a defined point from touchdown. 

A guided visual approach will expedite arriving traffic meeting all stabilization criteria to any runway in VMC, reducing workload, fuel burn and is predictable to both aircrew and ATC at all stages from approach to landing. 

Guided visual approaches involve the use of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data programmed into the FMS (autopilot) and guides the aircraft accurately along the desired approach path without the aircrew having to make flight path corrections based on visual cues.  ATC monitors the flightpath from the moment the aircraft is cleared for a VGA until touchdown and other traffic can be sequenced ahead or behind it in a predictable manner. 

Overall, a guided visual approach provides pilots with a more precise and optimized approach path to land on a runway, thereby enhancing safety and reducing the risk of incidents and accidents.
