LAX is the 2nd busiest airport in the U.S. and the 4th in the world! Come join us in keeping up that reputation on Friday night, Nov. 3!

We're gearing up for another fun LAX FNO. To help make things easier, I'm including some briefing notes for everyone. The ZLA airspace has undergone a number of procedure changes dubbed "Metroplex" over the last year or so. Here are some notes to help make everyone's participation fun, knowledgeable and efficient!

Also fun and new is the updated ILS RWY 25L approach with IAF CLPUR. We’re likely to use this during the event. Make sure you have a recently updated AIRAC to handle this new addition to the approach.

ILS RWY 25L Approach at CLPUR
In order to handle more traffic on simultaneous parallel approaches, the ILS RWY 25L approach has a new initial approach fix (IAF) named CLPUR. The path starting at CLPUR keeps 25L arrivals more separated from those on 24R.

While desceding via the ANJLL or HLYWD arrivals, your controller may instruct you to start your approach at CLPUR rather than CRCUS or SEAVU.

You may be told to expect direct CLPUR for ILS runway 25L approach in advance.

Then you will hear something like: "AAL123, after crossing [CRCUS or SEAVU] cleared direct CLPUR, cleared ILS runway 25L approach."

Check, double check and triple check your FMC to be sure you proceed to CLPUR when instructed and then WITZZ, JUDOH and so on until you intercept the localizer at GAATE.

Also double check that you follow the published altitude restrictions.

Be sure you DO NOT proceed direct HUNDA after SEAVU or CLPUR.

Questions? Let me know!

Excellently written briefing!  I wish it were mandatory for every pilot, at least the pieces that are applicable to every airfield.

That depends on where you’re coming from.

From the NW: IRNMN STAR
From the NE: ANJLL STAR
From the W: HLYWD STAR

Check out the briefing link in my post above, also.
