Okay I have a question about Lost Comm's at SEA. I am going to use NACO charts, as I was told my company Jepps cannot be posted in plain view on the internet. Sorry to those that may have a problem reading them.
Ok..... the Lost Comm(LC) procedure off any of the STARs into KSEA is...... after the final fix DCT SEA VOR.
Now after that you need to go at the last assigned, MEA, etc etc to any IAF and hold till ETA on flight plan or EFC..... standard holding pattern etc etc.
But I noticed that ILS34C has a note over the IAF saying, "Procedure NA for arrivals via the V495 southbound." The V495 is SEA then CIDUG. But on ILS34R, that note is absent.
My take on this is that even though you can shoot ANY published IAP during LC, they would prefer you to hold for ILS34R instead of ILS34C. But the thing is...... the IAF is the same for both approaches(CIDUG).
Now my questions are.....
1) Is my take wrong and that note only means ONLY if I filed V495 even though the LC procedure has me follow the V495 southbound?
2)What is the difference holding at CIDUG for ILS34R compared to ILS34C?
3)Say I held over CIDUG for ILS34C...... would I be able to justify it since I was following standard and published LC procedures and I did not have V495 officially filed in my FP?
I just don't understand if I could hold over CIDUG for ILS34C or if that note is preventing me even though STD LC procedures say ANY approach.
