Abstract

See full text

A system and method is provided for anticipating a missed approach point (MAP) during an instrument landing of an aircraft. Symbology is generated and displayed that graphically represents a lateral distance between a runway threshold and a virtual inner marker. The MAP is identified as the location of the aircraft when the symbology reaches a displayed runway threshold.
