T-34C INSTRUMENTS
APPENDIX E
STEPDOWN FIX ­ A fix permitting additional descent while on a segment of an instrument
approach. The fix identifies a point at which a controlling obstacle has been safely overflown.
STOP AND GO ­ A procedure wherein an aircraft will land, make a complete stop on the
runway, and then commence a takeoff from that point.
STRAIGHT­IN APPROACH ­ IFR ­ An instrument approach wherein final approach is
begun without first having executed a Procedure Turn. This type of approach is not necessarily
completed with a straight­in landing or made to straight­in landing minimums.
STRAIGHT­IN LANDING ­ A landing made on a runway aligned within 30º of the final
approach course following completion of an instrument approach.
TACAN ­ An ultra­high frequency electronic air navigation aid which provides suitably
equipped aircraft a continuous indication of bearing and distance (slant range) to the TACAN
station.
TRACK ­ The actual flight path of an aircraft over the surface of the earth.
TRANSPONDER ­ The airborne radar beacon receiver/transmitter portion of the Air Traffic
Control Radar Beacon System which automatically receives radio signals from ground
interrogators and selectively replies.
VICTOR AIRWAYS ­ A route system established in the form of a corridor on controlled
airspace. The routes are predicated solely on VOR/VORTAC NAVAIDS. Victor airways
include airspace at least 1200 feet above the surface (sometimes higher) up to but not including
18,000 feet MSL.
VISUAL DESCENT POINT (VDP) ­ A defined point on the final approach course of a Non-
precision Straight­in Approach Procedure, normally defined by DME, from which normal
descent from the MDA to the runway touchdown point may be commenced, provided the
runway environment is in sight and a safe landing can be accomplished.
