Arrival Procedures

8.

When an airway does not cross the lateral

TAA boundaries, a feeder route will be established
from an airway fix or NAVAID to the TAA boundary
to provide a transition from the en route structure to
the appropriate IAF. Each feeder route will terminate

at the TAA boundary and will be aligned along a path
pointing to the associated IAF. Pilots should descend
to the TAA altitude after crossing the TAA boundary
and cleared for the approach by ATC. 
(See FIG 5

−4−10).

Each waypoint on the “T” is assigned a

pronounceable 5

−letter name, except the missed

approach waypoint. These names are used for ATC
communications, RNAV databases, and aeronautical

navigation products. The missed approach waypoint
is assigned a pronounceable name when it is not
located at the runway threshold.
