MLS Advantages RNAV

The MLSMLS —Microwave Landing System has a different principle of operation, wider range of frequencies, and frequencies far removed from any commercial interference. It had a number of advantages over ILSILS —Instrument Landing System, including:

  • Reduced siting error
  • Allowing curved approaches
  • Allowing selection of glidepath
  • Making available more frequency selections
  • Making available guidance on the overshoot
  • Avoiding commercial radio interference with the localiser
