Arrival Procedures

6. U.S. Government charts depict TAAs using

icons located in the plan view outside the depiction of

the actual approach procedure. (See FIG 5−4−6). Use

of icons is necessary to avoid obscuring any portion

of the “T” procedure (altitudes, courses, minimum

altitudes, etc.). The icon for each TAA area will be

located and oriented on the plan view with respect to

the direction of arrival to the approach procedure, and

will show all TAA minimum altitudes and

sector/radius subdivisions. The IAF for each area of

the TAA is included on the icon where it appears on

the approach to help the pilot orient the icon to the

approach procedure. The IAF name and the distance

of the TAA area boundary from the IAF are included

on the outside arc of the TAA area icon.
