Intercept Course off Waypoints on ILS

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to take a waypoint and extend a course from that waypoint for ILS intercept purposes?

Under DIRECT TO on the FMS I see that option however, I am unable to figure out if that course option at the top right actually does work.

Plugging in a "273" off EBANS during the ILS27L in O'Hare for example does not work. 

In the approach phase this is used often. Thank you.

Yes, you can extend the flight plan by entering place, distance, and bearing waypoints. It is not possible via the DIR INTC page.

To my knowledge, it's entered as PLACE/BEARING/DISTANCE. For example, for a waypoint at 5 miles and 270 from KALB, it'd be KALB/270/5.
