INDEPENDENT DUAL ILS/MLS
APPROACHES – HIGH UPDATE RADAR
This change incorporates specially-designed instrument approach procedures at airports currently
conducting simultaneous dependent approaches.
This change allows air traffic control personnel to
conduct simultaneous dependent to appropriately
spaced runways where approach charts specifically
authorize simultaneous operations with adjacent
runways. This change deletes references to
ILS/MLS approaches and changes localizer/azimuth course to final approach course. This change
cancels and incorporates N JO 7110.574, Simultaneous Dependent and Independent Approaches,
effective January 18, 2012.
f. Additional editorial/format changes were
made where necessary. Revision bars were not used
because of the insignificant nature of these changes.
