ABSTRACT

Digital Terminal Procedures Publication (d -TPP) / Airport Diagrams [website]   [open pdf - 18KB]

Searchable digital collection containing digital (.pdf) files from the Terminal Procedures Publications (d-TPP). "Included in the Terminal Procedures Publications are: Instrument Approach Procedure (IAP) Charts; Departure Procedure (DP) Charts; Standard Terminal Arrival (STAR) Charts; Charted Visual Flight Procedures (CVFP); [and] Airport Diagrams (AD). IAP Charts are designed to provide an IFR descent from the enroute environment to a point where a safe landing can be made. DP Charts are Air Traffic Control (ATC)-coded departure procedures which have been established at certain airports to simplify clearance delivery procedures. STAR Charts are ATCcoded IFR arrival routes established for certain airports to simplify clearance delivery procedures. CVFPs are an operational technique designed to move air traffic safely and expeditiously. In addition to conventional visual approach procedures, it has been necessary to specify routes/altitudes to enhance noise abatement at some locations. CVFPs have been developed to provide a pictorial display of these visual arrival routes. Airport Diagrams are specifically designed to assist in the movement of ground traffic at locations with complex runway/taxiway configurations and provide information for updating geodetic position navigational systems aboard aircraft. Airport Diagrams can also be found in back of the Airport/Facilities Directories. "
