charted visual flight procedures
charted visual flight procedures (CVFP)
Charted visual approaches established at locations with jet operations for noise abatement purposes. The approach charts depict prominent landmarks, courses, and recommended altitudes to specified runways. These procedures are used only in radar environments at airports with an operating control tower. When such landmarks are not visible at night, the annotation “PROCEDURE NOT AUTHORIZED AT NIGHT” is made on the chart.
