Perhaps the most critical part of your IFR flight is the penetration and approach in the terminal
phase of flight. You must be able to descend from cruising altitude and execute a safe landing in
instrument conditions. This process is accomplished by means of published Instrument
Approach Procedures (commonly called approach plates) and/or maneuvers directed by radar
controllers. You must be thoroughly familiar with the types of penetrations and approaches
available for use.
