APPENDIX B
APPROACH PLATE STUDY TECHNIQUE
B100. GENERAL
During preflight planning, check forecast surface wind at destination for your estimated time of
arrival. The runway in use is not always the one most closely aligned into the wind due to noise
abatement procedures or traffic patterns, but usually you can narrow the number of approach
plates to be studied. Approaching the terminal area, determine the instrument approach in use at
destination from ATIS if available, or question the controller.
B101. RECOMMENDED APPROACH PLATE STUDY TECHNIQUE
The following is a recommended technique to study approach plates:
1.
Plan View
Mentally fly the approach from the IAF to the MAP and determine all lead points and procedures
that apply during the approach. Identify the point where the aircraft should be configured for
landing. You undoubtedly will notice headings, NAVAID frequency and location, and the
holding pattern if published. Other information available to you on the plan view is:
a.
Feeder Routes are designed to channel aircraft from the enroute structure to the IAF.
They are published only if they provide an operational advantage and coincide with
the normal local air traffic flow. The course you see will take you to the IAF and the
distance displayed is from the feeder fix to the IAF.
b.
Minimum Safe Altitude provides the pilot with at least 1000 feet of obstacle
clearance within a specified distance from the navigational facility upon which the
procedure is predicated. An Emergency Safe Altitude provides a 1000­foot obstacle
clearance within a 100­mile radius of the NAV facility or a 2000­foot obstacle
clearance in designated mountainous areas.
c.
Frequencies. At the top of the page, you will see listed the most commonly used
frequencies and the name of the ATC facility to which you will be talking.
2.
Profile View
Review for altitude and descent rates. Observe the altitude restrictions and know where they
apply. Minimum, maximum, mandatory, and recommended altitudes precede the fix or facility
to which they are intended. If this is not the case, an arrow will indicate exactly where the
altitude applies. In this section, you will also find the published Missed Approach Procedures.
