It can also be tempting to assume that when something is missing or out of the ordinary that it is an error on the approach chart
, rather than intentional.
The approach chart
for Runway 5 includes a "T" (for takeoff) in a small black triangle in the briefing strip across the top of the chart.
Taking it further, a dynamic instrument approach chart
could remove or de-emphasize approach categories that don't apply or transitions the pilot isn't flying, greatly simplifying the chart.
To ensure I'd remember when I got to the missed approach point, I used the Notes function of my flight planning software to circle the alternate holding fix on the approach chart
, as depicted below.
If you're concerned about the size of the files and overall storage capacity, you have the option of downloading all of the required data (tapping the Pack button) or by separate line item (approach chart
, enroute chart, etc.) by tapping each line item on the page.
(No, you didn't, and determine from the approach chart
there are runway end identifier lights and PAPIs on the left.) You could divert to Texarkana now.
But they are also in the fine print on an instrument approach chart
, and may change based on several variables on any given approach.

I understand the 20:1 slope with the associated risk levels, as well as the FAA penetration mitigations except for one: "Issuing a Notam preventing night operations." That probably would include a permanent restriction on the approach chart
During an instrument proficiency check, or for that matter an instrument check ride, a common question is, "What does the title of an approach chart
It is a LNAV+V approach, and you will not see it on the minima section of an approach chart
Another welcome change is with approach charts
. MyCast had improved chart access with chart binders, but the new version allows you to open an approach chart
and then toggle via the home menu between that chart and the moving map.
The only way to differentiate is checking at least one approach chart
