FLIGHT TRAINING PUBLICATION (FLIP) STUDENT GUIDE
Some preferred routes may terminate with a "STAR" description. This "STAR" description is an
abbreviation for STANDARD TERMINAL ARRIVALS. At selected airfields the pilot is to
refer to the STAR publication that corresponds with the destination airfield.
There are Preferred IFR Routes established for both the Low and
High Altitude Route Structures. Do not mistake one for the other.
An example of a high altitude preferred route originating in the
Albany area is shown in Figure 2-4.
