only be reached by scanning backwards. It does not wrap around
after the last waypoint in the complete list.
Waypoint pages displayed in the nearest list do not contain a latitude
and longitude position as they do in the complete list. Instead, the
bearing and distance to the waypoint (or the radial and distance from
the waypoint) are displayed. In addition, nearest airport pages dis-
play the length, surface, and lighting of the longest runway. Once the
nearest waypoint is being displayed, the other waypoint pages (for
example, APT 2 and APT 3) for that airport are available for display
by making sure the right inner knob is pushed in and then turning it to
select the desired airport page.
188.8.131.52 Nearest Airport Criteria
The nine airports in the nearest list are the nine airports which meet
the criteria selected on the Setup 6 (SET 6) page. For example, you
probably wouldn’t want to take a turboprop into a 1500 foot grass
strip! The SET 6 page allows you to specify what criteria you want an
airport to meet before it is considered for the nearest airport list.
To specify the nearest airport criteria:
Select the SET 6 page and turn on the cursor (
Use the right inner knob to select
the minimum length runway
desired for the airport to qualify
for the nearest airport list (figure
3-91). Values between 1000 feet
and 5000 feet or between 300m
and 1500m in 100 foot or meter
increments may be selected.
Rotate the right outer knob clockwise to move the cursor over the
runway surface criteria.
Turn the right inner knob to select either HRD or ANY. If ANY is
chosen, then both hard and soft surface runways meeting the
required runway length will be included in the nearest airport list.
If HRD is chosen, then only hard surface runways will be includ-
ed. Hard surface runways include concrete, asphalt, pavement,
tarmac, brick, bitumen, and sealed. Soft surface runways include
turf, gravel, clay, sand, dirt, ice, steel matting, shale, and snow.
For example, if the minimum runway criteria selected is 2200 feet in
length and HRD surface, then only airport having a hard surface runway
at least 2200 feet in length will be displayed in the nearest airport list.
