(d) Precision approach runway, category III: An instrument runway served by ILS and/or MLS to and along the surface of the runway and: A — intended for operations with a decision height lower than 30 m (100 ft), or no decision height and a runway visual range not less than 200 m. B — intended for operations with a decision height lower than 15 m (50 ft), or no decision height and a runway visual range less than 200 m but not less than 50 m. C — intended for operations with no decision height and no runway visual range limitations. Note: Visual aids need not necessarily be matched to the scale of non-visual aids provided. The criterion for the selection of visual aids is the conditions in which operations are intended to be conducted. Intermediate holding position: A designated position intended for traffic control at which taxiing aircraft and vehicles shall stop and hold until further cleared to proceed, when so instructed by the aerodrome control tower.

It is prescribed and approved for a specific airport by competent authority. Instrument flight rules (IFR): Rules governing the procedures for conducting instrument flight. Also a term used by pilots and controllers to indicate type of flight plan. Instrument landing system (ILS): A precision instrument approach system which normally consists of the following electronic components and visual aids: localizer, glide slope, outer marker, middle marker, and approach lights. Landing area: That part of a movement area intended for the landing or takeoff of aircraft. Landing direction indicator: A device to indicate visually the direction currently designated for landing and for takeoff. Localizer (LOC): The component of an ILS which provides horizontal guidance to the runway centreline for aircraft during approach and landing by radiating a directional pattern of radio waves modulated by two signals which, when received with equal intensity, are displayed by compatible airborne equipment as an “on-course” indication, and when received in unequal intensity are displayed as an “off-course” indication. Manoeuvring area: That part of an aerodrome to be used for the takeoff, landing and taxiing of aircraft, excluding aprons. Marker: An object displayed above ground level in order to indicate an obstacle or delineate a boundary. Marking: A symbol or group of symbols displayed on the surface of the movement area in order to convey aeronautical information.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
