Wrong LOC course displayed for PHNL 04R

Postby yanes » Sun Aug 26, 2018 9:46 pm

Hi all ,
Have anyone noticed that the map (Ctrl+M) shows "043" as runway 04R localizer course at PHNL , which looks wrong ?
the correct one is "053" and took me all the afternoon trying to land without success .

I can't look into Phi map which doesn't work since i installed the 2018.2.2, the httpd server shows a listing and looks like the cgi doesn't run ,
and I wish someone tells me if something happened to it .

please correct me if I'm wrong , Thanks .

https://flightaware.com/resources/airpo ... /RNAV+(GPS)+RWY+04L has some 12 month old charts which may help you decide what is correct, and if FG has an error.

Thank you Mr Alan ,
it confirmed my doubts ,
the page at https://flightaware.com/resources/airpo ... ay/04R/22L notes "53°" as rwy heading ,
This should be fixed soon by anyone with commit access to FGData ,

I have just done this approach and all seems OK. I was using the scenery data from terrasync.

I think Flightaware shows the true heading of the runway, not the magnetic heading, which is used by aircraft and by the localiser. So 42° is the correct heading you would set in your ILS receiver. I checked my Navigraph charts (which are up to date) and the LOC approach into 4R shows 42° as final approach course, with an 11° offset between true and magnetic north, which makes up the 53° true, but you should never use the true north when setting ILS courses. Hope this clarifies something.
