Visual Descent Point
Figure 14:
Visual Descent Point
a.
The Visual Descent Point (VDP) is a defined
point on the final approach course for a
nonprecision straight-in approach procedure
from which a normal descent from the MDA to
the runway touchdown point may be
commenced, provided reference to the runway
has been obtained
(1) The VDP will normally be identified by DME
on VOR, TACAN, and LOC procedures
(2) The VDP is identified on the profile view of
the approach chart by the symbol V
(3) VDPs are advisory in nature but are useful
when proceeding to an unfamiliar field.
They are intended to provide additional
guidance where implemented
(4) No special technique is required to fly a
procedure with a VDP
(5) The pilot should not descend below the
MDA prior to reaching the VDP and
acquiring the necessary visual reference
(6) Pilots not equipped to receive the VDP
should fly the approach procedure as
though no VDP had been provided
8.
Landing Criteria from an IFR Approach 2.9.4.5.1.2

an instrument approach below the DH/DA or
