glideslope and course information and is considered a precision approach. A
Localizer approach uses course information only and is considered a non-
precision approach (Figure 640). If flying the localizer portion of an ILS
approach, it will still be referred to as an ILS approach (as listed in the approach
RNAV or GPS in the margin means the procedure may be executed using
Global Positioning Satellite Equipment.
Plan View This is a bird's eye view of the approach procedure, including Procedure
Turn or another specified initial approach segment, minimum safe altitudes, courses for
the final approach segment, obstructions, and navigation and communication
frequencies. Data shown within the distance circle (normally 10 NM) is always shown
to scale. Dashed circles are used to indicate needed information for the procedure which
will not fit to scale within the plan view and include Enroute Facilities (low altitude
airways NAVAIDS, fixes, and intersections shown in their relative position around the
approach facility) and Feeder Facilities (NAVAIDS, fixes, and intersections used by
ATC to funnel aircraft from the enroute structure to the IAF).
"ASR" or "PAR" listed below the communications information
indicates that Radar approaches and radar vectors to final approach
course are available.
