Arrival Procedures

aircraft is equipped with the required NAVAID(s) in

order to execute the approach, including the missed



Some military (i.e., U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy)

IAPs have these “additional equipment required”

notes charted only in the planview of the approach

procedure and do not conform to the same application

standards used by the FAA.

(c) The FAA has initiated a program to

provide a new notation for LOC approaches when

charted on an ILS approach requiring other

navigational aids to fly the final approach course. The

LOC minimums will be annotated with the NAVAID

required (e.g., “DME Required” or “RADAR

Required”). During the transition period, ILS

approaches will still exist without the annotation.

(d) Many ILS approaches having minima

based on RVR are eligible for a landing minimum of

RVR 1800. Some of these approaches are to runways

that have touchdown zone and centerline lights. For

many runways that do not have touchdown and

centerline lights, it is still possible to allow a landing

minimum of RVR 1800. For these runways, the

normal ILS minimum of RVR 2400 can be annotated

with a single or double asterisk or the dagger symbol


 for example “** 696/24 200 (200/1/2).” A note

is included on the chart stating “**RVR 1800

authorized with use of FD or AP or HUD to DA.” The

pilot must use the flight director, or autopilot with an

approved approach coupler, or head up display to

decision altitude or to the initiation of a missed

approach. In the interest of safety, single pilot

operators should not fly approaches to 1800 RVR

minimums on runways without touchdown and

centerline lights using only a flight director, unless

accompanied by the use of an autopilot with an

approach coupler.

(e) The naming of multiple approaches of the

same type to the same runway is also changing.

Multiple approaches with the same guidance will be

annotated with an alphabetical suffix beginning at the

end of the alphabet and working backwards for

subsequent procedures (e.g., ILS Z RWY 28, ILS Y

RWY 28, etc.). The existing annotations such as

ILS 2 RWY 28 or Silver ILS RWY 28 will be phased

out and replaced with the new designation. The Cat II

and Cat III designations are used to differentiate

between multiple ILSs to the same runway unless

there are multiples of the same type.

(f) RNAV (GPS) approaches to LNAV, LP,

LNAV/VNAV and LPV lines of minima using WAAS

and RNAV (GPS) approaches to LNAV and

LNAV/VNAV lines of minima using GPS are charted

as RNAV (GPS) RWY (Number) (e.g., RNAV (GPS)

RWY 21). VOR/DME RNAV approaches will

continue to be identified as VOR/DME RNAV RWY

(Number) (e.g., VOR/DME RNAV RWY 21).

VOR/DME RNAV procedures which can be flown by

GPS will be annotated with “or GPS” (e.g., VOR/


(g) Performance−Based Navigation (PBN)

Box. As charts are updated, a procedure’s PBN

requirements and conventional equipment require-

ments will be prominently displayed in separate,

standardized notes boxes.  For procedures with PBN

elements, the PBN box will contain the procedure’s

navigation specification(s); and, if required: specific

sensors or infrastructure needed for the navigation

solution, any additional or advanced functional

requirements, the minimum Required Navigation

Performance (RNP) value, and any amplifying

remarks. Items listed in this PBN box are

REQUIRED for the procedure’s PBN elements. For

example, an ILS with an RNAV missed approach

would require a specific capability to fly the missed

approach portion of the procedure. That required

capability will be listed in the PBN box. The separate

Equipment Requirements box will list ground−based

equipment requirements. On procedures with both

PBN elements and equipment requirements, the PBN

requirements box will be listed first. The publication

of these notes will continue incrementally until all

charts have been amended to comply with the new


4. Approach minimums are based on the local

altimeter setting for that airport, unless annotated

otherwise; e.g., Oklahoma City/Will Rogers World

approaches are based on having a Will Rogers World

altimeter setting. When a different altimeter source is

required, or more than one source is authorized, it will

be annotated on the approach chart; e.g., use Sidney

altimeter setting, if not received, use Scottsbluff

altimeter setting. Approach minimums may be raised

when a nonlocal altimeter source is authorized. When

more than one altimeter source is authorized, and the

minima are different, they will be shown by separate

lines in the approach minima box or a note; e.g., use
