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.
