lppr approach

Is it just me, or the LLPR VOR/DME aproach rw35 on the FSX is not accurate?
Can anyone help me?

Don't see a LLPR, what's the name of the airport?

LPPR, not LLPR

Thanks, I didn't notice the two different airport ID's.

I was unable to find the approach chart for the VOR/DME 35 approach at LPPR. The approach looks correct. VOR approaches sometimes don't align you with the runway, I've seen them 60-90 degrees off. If the course is more than 30 degrees off, it's a circling approach and the MDA and visibility will be higher. If it's 30 degrees or less, it's a straight in approach. There is an exception but it deals with steep descent gradients. In other words, it looks normal to me, at least without seeing the chart. 🙂

In this case the approach should align with the rw.

You can find the app. chart at this location.

You're right, it's a little off but that's about all the precision you're going to get from this non-precision approach.
