Pilots flying IFR use instrument approaches to arrive at their destination airports accurately and safely, and pilots flying VFR can use them as well. The GPS devices in MSFS 2020 make following instrument approach procedures easy because routes, fixes, and distances are plainly displayed on the GPS moving map.

  • Select, load, and activate published instrument approaches
  • Choose transition points
  • See your approaches in the GPS screen
  • Follow your approaches by GPS

Using GPS for Instrument Approaches is an advanced topic. To benefit from this video, you need to know how to use a GPS device and how to simulate instrument flight. Using GPS for navigation is explained in my video, Navigating With GPS in MSFS 2020. Simulating instrument flight is explained an my book, Instrument Flying for Flight-Sim Pilots.

Relevancy Statement

My flight-sim videos and books are only for home flight-simulation computer games. They are based on real aviation laws, regulations, and procedures so home flight-simulation enthusiasts can maximize their enjoyment. Because some aspects of home flight-simulation games are not exactly like real-world aviation, some information in my videos and books is not exactly like real-world flight. That is why these videos and books are not intended for and should not be used for real-world flight or lessons. We accept no liability for any misuse of these flight-simulation videos and books! – Bill Stack
