Over the last week or so I’ve been learning more about IFR and trying my hand at doing some ILS approaches. I’ve watched quite a few videos on it and I think I have a good idea of how it’s supposed to work, but I find myself flying into quite a few airports where I don’t see a glide slope indicated on my G1000. The localizer works (i.e., my horizontal position is guided as I would expect it to), but I don’t see the “G” or diamonds on my altimeter indicating I could hook into the glide slope to control my vertical position by pressing the “apr” button. I do see it in some airports, but not all.
For some added context, I’m currently working my way through the “Experience Norway: Part I” tour in Sky Park, which is a 21 stop tour through northern Norway. Maybe these remote airports tend to not have a glide slope? Also, I have trouble finding approach plates for the airports, so I’m just going off of little nav map to figure out which airports have ILS and what frequency to tune into and I try to be about 3k feet once I’m ~10nm from the run way.
Here’s an example of an approach which does not have a glide slope shown on the altimeter (i.e., no “G” or diamonds). This is me trying to land at ENAN.
And here’s an example of an approach which does have a glide slope, flying into KSPA.
Is this just user error on my side? Do all ILS approaches include a glide slope? Or is this expected?
Thanks for reading!
