If it says ILS26R, it means that there is an ILS available for that runway. If it just says 26R, it most likely means there is no precision approach available, which means the approach is a visual. Sometimes it will say ILS/DME
, which means there's also a DME
available for the ILS.
Other approaches you might find available in an FMC for a specific airport can be VOR/DME
or RNAV approaches to name a few. Just remember the basic thing: if before the runway number it says ILS or VOR, etc., when choosing an arrival, it means there is a precision approach available. However, while you may have a runway available to select, it doesn't immediately mean you have a certain arrival available, at least not in FS
, so you might have to set in that case a Runway extension, which will set a fix at a distance from the Runway of your choosing. Check your FMC's manual for that.
