T-45C TS INav-07
Interpretation of High Altitude Instrument Approach Plates
C.
Instrument approach minimums
Sg 4, fr 2-5
Instrument Approach
1.
Type of approach
Minimums
a.
Straight-in/circling
b.
Precision/nonprecision
2.
Aircraft category
a.
Criteria established for six categories: A,B,C,D,E, and
copter
b.
Generally, only categories C, D, and E are listed in high
altitude terminal approach plates (T-45C falls under C).
Occasionally category B is listed
3.
Ceiling and visibility requirements - criteria used for IFR
destination and alternate filing purposes. Also establishes
takeoff criteria
a.
Ceiling in feet above ground level (AGL)
b.
Prevailing visibility in statute miles (sm)
c.
Runway visual range (RVR) in hundreds of feet (if airport
is so equipped)
4.
Decision height/altitude (DH/DA)/minimum descent altitude
(MDA)
a.
DH/DA applies to precision approaches
b.
MDA applies to nonprecision approaches
c.
Altitudes of DH/DA and MDA are given in feet mean sea
level (MSL) and height above touchdown zone (HAT) or
height above airport (HAA) for circling approach. HAT
and HAA are AGL altitudes
NOTE: DH is being changed to DA to conform to ICAO
standards where "H" is AGL and "A" is MSL
5.
Glideslope angle information for PAR approaches
COMMON ERROR: Not looking up asterisks/symbols that
pertain to modifications of minimums.
NOTE: Use rate-of-climb/descent table on inside back cover.
