Radio Failure

Post by fly4life »

If you were to suffer a radio failure on approach to one of the main airports at what stage would you need to brake from the approach and follow failure procedures as shown on the vfr charts. i.e. radio failure after getting clearence to final can you continue to land once runway is clear

If you have received a landing clearance, you can continue and land on the runway.
Otherwise, you need to conduct a low approach and overshoot and remain in the circuit, squawk 7600, and look for light signals while in circuit.

Don't most ATC Zones have a holding zone just off the circut where you circle in the event of a radio failure, operating in shallow turns away from the pattern??

Yes, have a look at the Irish AIP (online from IAA website) airports with Controlled airspace around them have a visual chart that shows the hold pattern and also a brief radio fail procedure.
