Correct Lateral Track

A correct lateral track is one in which the correct localizer, radial, or other track guidance has been set, tuned and identified, and is being followed by the pilot. Electronic lateral guidance should be utilized whenever provided, even in visual
meteorological conditions (VMC). A correct lateral track, when no electronic guidance is provided, is a track along the extended runway centerline and is being tracked by the pilot.
