Amber Flashing "LS" During IGS Approach Kai Tak

Recommended Posts

As I commenced the final portion of the Rwy 13 IGS approach to VHHX I pressed the V/S FPA button and then APPR (LS not engaged). I then noticed "LS" (landing speed?) flashing amber on the PFD. The a/c flew the approach as expected. Can't find a reference to "LS". What does the LS annunciation mean and why was it on?

 

Thank you

You had to push the LS button below baro, next to FD.

Doh! I knew that :-). For some reason I wasn't thinking that an IGS approach is a type of ILS approach.

Also interestingly this morning I watched a video on Youtube of an A320 autoland in a simulator made by a pilot training company posted in 2012. In that simulator the LS button is actually labeled "ILS". I wonder if Airbus changed the label at some point. Anyway, thank.
