The VNY LDA-C missed approach involves multiple steps and begins with a climb straight ahead, essentially eastbound to 1,900 feet, followed by a right turn to a 210-degree heading as the aircraft continues the climb to 4,600 feet. From there, the pilot intercepts the 267-degree radial from the Santa Monica VOR. This requires a turn to roughly 267 degrees—depending on the wind—until reaching the Ventura VOR, where the pilot would enter the published hold. ATC could, of course, issue alternate missed approach instructions. One item to remember is the pilot is not allowed to skip any intermediate steps when executing the published missed, so don’t try flying GPS direct to VTU unless you’ve requested and ATC has approved such a turn.
