Simplified directional facility (SDF)

Simplified directional facility (SDF). A NAVAID used for nonprecision instrument approaches. The final approach course is similar to that of an ILS localizer; however, the SDF course may be offset from the runway, generally not more than 3 , and the course may be wider than the localizer, resulting in a lower degree of accuracy.
