VOR DME ARC into Biggin Hill

A close call with an opposite direction Helicopter and developing those all important Instrument Flight skills flying the VOR DME ARC into London Biggin Hill Airport.

For myself, the only time I’ve encountered a VOR DME arc was during my IR(R) training. So it was a good idea to practice and next time I’ll look to perfect this approach before commencing the EASA CB-IR.

Procedural arrivals not normally permitted when ‘Thames Director’ is available. Aircraft will normally be radar vectored, however in this example we was allowed to self positon for the procedure and conduct two holds at ALKIN.

The chart for reference for this procedure is AD-2-EGKB-8-2 as of 8 NOV 2018
