T-45C TS INav-06
Departure and Terminal Procedures
Criteria for operating below the DH/DA or MDA
for civilian pilots is clearly stated in FAR
91.175(c)(3), landing criteria for Navy pilots is
stated in OPNAV 3710.7 para 5.3.3.4, but it is
not stated as definitively. Criteria for the Navy
pilot continuing an approach to a landing is
stated as:
“Pilots shall not descend below the prescribed
MDA or continue an approach below the DH
unless they have the runway environment in
sight, and, in their judgement, a safe landing
can be executed, either straight-in or from a
circling approach, whichever is specified in
their clearance.”
Although we are not civilian pilots, we may gain
some insights into instrument approach
techniques by looking at the civilian rules which
are more specific than OPNAV 3710.7
b.
Criteria for the civil pilot continuing an approach
is stated in FAR part 91.175 as:
(1) “Where a DH/DA or MDA is applicable, no
pilot may operate an aircraft, except a
military aircraft of the United States, at any
airport below the authorized MDA or
continue an approach below the authorized
DH unless:
(a) The aircraft is continuously in a
position from which a descent to a
landing on the intended runway can be
made at a normal rate of descent
using normal maneuvers, and for
operations conducted under part 121
or part 135 unless that descent rate
will allow touchdown to occur within the
touchdown zone of the runway of
intended landing;
