Pohnpei Intl

Volume:58 (download)
Airport:Pohnpei Intl
Country:Micronesia
Description: This GPS approach into Pohnpei Intl (PTPN) runway 27 is damned hard to master. There's a hell of a lot going on in a short space of time. Hits bugs 'APP,' 'IAS' and 'ALT' and activate autopilot. This will take you to the UKOSY intersection at 1700ft. Make a left turn at the intersection onto 258 degrees (HDG) bug, and drop 'ALT' to 1300ft. Disconnect autopilot on top of EVUTY. Fly manually to land. Expect a 6001ft asphalt runway on an elevation of 8ft. Amen.
