    The microwave landing system (MLS) is an all-weather, precision radio guidance system intended to be installed at large airports to assist aircraft in landing, including 'blind landings'. MLS enables an approaching aircraft to determine when it's aligned with the destination runway and on the correct glidepath for a safe landing. Re: Microwave landing system (MLS) at Heathrow «Reply #13 on: Tue, 11 Oct » This discussion made me ask a few questions and it sems that they chose not to install eILS here because it was the inner runways (which are used for landing only in backup) and that they are considering buying eILS for the outer runways in a few years.

      Skyfox on According to the AIM, the list of changes in applied to the AIM from included removing all references to the MLS, including the notes, “This change removes Microwave Landing System (MLS) as an approach type,” and, “Microwave Landing System (MLS) is no longer an approach option and was deleted.”. Principle of MLS operation The MLS system operates at a frequency band of ,0 – ,7 MHz on two separate channels at a mutual interval of kHz. The protractor part of the MLS system provides continually information about an aircraft’s position relative to the runway both in .

Sults of the evaluation indicate that flying curved MLS approaches with a wide-body transport air- craft is operationally acceptable depending upon the length of the final straight segment and the complexity of the approach.

Evaluation of microwave landing system approaches in a wide-body transport simulator. [Washington, DC]: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Office of Management, Scientific and Technical Information Program ; [Springfield, Va.: National Technical Information Service, distributor], The objective of this study was to determine the suitability of flying complex curved approaches using the microwave landing system (MLS) with a wide-body transport aircraft.

The objective of this study was to determine the suitability of flying complex curved approaches using the microwave landing system (MLS) with a wide-body transport aircraft.

Fifty pilots in crews of two participated in the evaluation using a fixed-base simulator that emulated an MD aircraft. Abstract: The National Microwave Landing Systems (MLS) program is a joint DOT/DOD/NASA effort to implement a common civil/military precision landing system to replace the current Instrument Landing System (ILS).

The MLS will be capable of providing precision landing guidance down to Category III minimum while allowing for complex approach paths in both the horizontal and vertical by: 4. The flight simulator study described In this report concerns an evaluation of flight director flown curved MLS approach paths with a simulated wide-body transport aircraft.

Four curved approach paths, consisting of two straight segments and one 90 degrees circular segment with different straight final segment lengths, have been investigated.

The modeling and simulation of MLS can shorten the test time and reduce the expenditure : Jing He, Chuanjin Dai, Gang Wang. Microwave Landing System Like ILS MLS uses two beams, one in azimuth and one in elevation.

Unlike ILS the beams both use the same frequency, one of available channels in the SHF band from MHz to MHz. Where segmented approaches are flown the crew need to program each waypoints range, bearing and elevation from the MLS.

I remember reading about the Microwave Landing System (MLS) years ago in aviation textbooks in the states. Supposedly, (back then), the MLS was going to be all the rage and replace most ILSs. What happened?

I don't know of any MLS approaches? Was it a funding issue as to why the MLS never went forward or did the GPS do in the MLS? Thanks.
