- Localizer and glide slope deviation
- Ground speed
- Radio altitude
- Decision height
- Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) and Autothrottle modes
- Speed error scale (Difference between commanded and actual)

When the aircraft is awaiting capture of the localizer, the LOC (localizer) light will typically be amber. When the localizer has been captured the light will change to a green LOC light.
