Hey fellow a-nutters,

Listening to the VHF I heard arrival control stating "leave five-thousand on the glidepath." Does he mean, as you descend through 5000ft, do it while capturing the glidepath??

Thanks

it means that you have to maintain 5000' until you intercept the glidepath and then you are allowed to descent with the glidepath...

I would maintain 5000' until intercepting the glide slope, assuming I was at 5000'. Otherwise, you would descent to 5000' and maintain that until you intercept the glide slope.

This verbiage is very common in the UK.

In the US, you'll most commonly hear "Maintain 5000 till established" as part of your approach clearance or "Maintain 5000 till FIX" where FIX is the location you'll intercept the glideslope at 5000ft.

Which means that once you're established on the localizer, you can descend to follow the altitude restrictions published on the approach plate. Say I've been instructed to maintain 4,000 until established, and once I'm established, I'm on a portion of the approach where the minimum altitude is 3,000. I can (and should) descend down to 3,000 at that time, and continue descending along with the published procedure until I get to the glideslope interception altitude.
