I have a problem understanding FAF - how can I find FAf on a precision approach without the lightning bolt/zigzag symbol. I know the Maltese cross means FAF for a non-precision approach.
According to the Jeppesen airway manual,
by the glide slope/path intercept point on precision approaches
Which means that wherever I intercept the GS, I can say that point is FAF?
I added a chart. (In case you cannot see the picture I will explain the chart) FAF (Maltese cross) is positioned at DME 5.1 and 1700ft on a 3 degree glide path.
At the moment I pass the Maltese cross at 1700 ft, the GS indicator will be below because from 5.1DME on a 3 degree glide path, altitude will be about 1620ft so I need to descend at a steeper rate to intercept the GS. Then I will intercept the GS after FAF of a non-precision approach. In this case the FAF for the precision approach is positioned after the Maltese cross?
Is the FAF of aprecision approach not fixed at a specific position?
Until now, I have regarded the Maltese cross as the FAF for precision approach because there was no lightning bolt symbol.
Please correct my misunderstanding...
