approach speed of 1.3 times the stall speed in the landing
configuration at maximum gross weight. Each category provides
300 feet of obstacle clearance at MDA within the circling radius.

For all approaches you can always go up a category (such as up to "C,
D, or E"), but never down a category (down to "A")
