category II operations

With respect to the operation of aircraft, it means a straight-in ILS (instrument landing system) approach to the runway of an airport, using the Cat II ILS instrument approach procedure issued by the national aviation regulatory authority or another appropriate agency. The minimum decision height is 100 ft, and the minimum RVR (runway visual range) is 1200 ft.
