The Korry Arrival: Lots Of Restrictions

Wed Apr 30, 2003 9:57 am

The standard arrival into LGA from the south is the KORRY, which says "Maintain last assigned altitude until cleared to 'descend via the KORRY2'. Then comply with altitude restrictions as published."

The restrictions:
Cross RIDGY at FL270
Cross SKIPY at or below FL220, at or above FL 190
Cross BESSI at or above 17000
Cross DAVYS at or above 13000
Cross BRAND at or above 11000
Cross KORRY at 10000

I suppose most of today's flights just push a button and the aircraft automatically follows the already-stored profile. How much of a chore is it to fly an arrival like that in a VOR/DME-only equipped aircraft?

It's probably not that hard with a VOR/DME equipped only aircraft. As long as you're on the right course, you can just compute how far you are from each intersection, and as a result plan your decent accordingly. Of course, the only tricky part to this would be to be on course, and not deviate too much...
