I have never seen a sidestep landing on an approach plate. What is a sidestep landing and when I can chose this approach?
From the AIM 5-4-19:
5−4−19. Side−step Maneuver
a. ATC may authorize a standard instrument approach procedure which serves either one of parallel runways that are separated by 1,200 feet or less followed by a straight−in landing on the adjacent runway.
b. Aircraft that will execute a side−step maneuver will be cleared for a specified approach procedure and landing on the adjacent parallel runway. Example, “cleared ILS runway 7 left approach, side−step to runway 7 right.” Pilots are expected to commence the side−step maneuver as soon as possible after the runway or runway environment is in sight. Compliance with minimum altitudes associated with stepdown fixes is expected even after the side−step maneuver is initiated.
Side−step minima are flown to a Minimum Descent Altitude (MDA) regardless of the approach authorized.
c. Landing minimums to the adjacent runway will be based on nonprecision criteria and therefore higher than the precision minimums to the primary runway, but will normally be lower than the published circling minimums.
It’s for flying an instrument approach to one runway, then sidestepping, or moving over to land on a parallel runway nearby
EG “Cessna one seven two Sierra Papa, you are 4 miles east of DUANE. Turn right heading two eight zero, descend and maintain on thousand eight hundred. Cleared ILS Runway 32L, sidestep to land Runway 32R. Maintain one thousand eight hundred until established. Contact Boeing Tower one two zero point six.”
A sidestep to land approach would be flown down to the published circling minimums and is considered to be a circle to land procedure. If circling did to terrain or obstacle, etc. is not allowed, neither would a sidestep procedure.
