Doing a lot of flying around Military bases here, we often get asked to do certain approaches for controller training. Mainly the PAR. Sometimes the no gyro approach. ILS is a biggie too when it is in service (not that often). Just curious if Airliners or Comm crews get similar requests. Thanks.............................FE
I love the PAR approach. I used to fly a King Air into Destin, FL on a regular basis which is controlled by Eglin AFB. Apparently for certification purposes, the military controllers were required to work periodic PAR's, so every now and then I'd get asked if I would take one. I always said yes.
As long as you fly the controller's commands to the letter while using due diligence, it's a great and accurate approach..
