Pagination or Media Count:
The low visibility environment presents a formidable challenge not only to pilots, but to the engineers, designers and planners who will develop hardware and establish procedures. The pilot, however, is in a unique position, since, in the final analysis, he is the ultimate decision maker whether or not he desires this role. Pilots must know and understand what they are being tasked to do. The report has been written to describe and explain from a pilots point of view, the requirements and procedures for operating in the low visibility environment. The report represents the experiences acquired from over 250 low visibility approaches and landings in visibilities as low as zero-zero. These have been documented to describe what will be seen from the approach and landing environment and how what is seen may be used.
