VOR. DME arcs greater than 26 NM will have
waypoints where the first two characters are the
first two letters of the DME identifier. The next
three characters will be the radial that the arc way
point is on.

In the rules above x and yyy are defined as follows. For runways with
only one approach, x will be replaced with an “A” or a “F”. For run-
ways that have multiple approaches, x will be replaced with “V” for
VOR, “N” for NDB, or “R” for RNAV. The letters yyy will be replaced
with either the runway identifier (e.g., FF25L) or, for circling
approaches, the inbound course to the missed approach point (e.g.,

Waypoints along a given radial will be named such that the first three
letters are the reference VOR/DME and the next two are the DME
distance. If the distance is greater than 100 NM the order is reversed.
For example, LAX18 is 18 NM from LAX while 26FLW is 126 NM
from FLW.

If the aircraft is not too far from the destination airport, the NAV 4
page can be used to determine where some of these waypoints are
relative to others in the approach. At the time of this writing, all of the
NOS charts and some Jeppesen charts do not show the special ter-
minal waypoints that are required for GPS approaches. For this
reason it is a good idea to understand what the special waypoints are
used for and what they mean.

You may have also noticed that some waypoints have a small letter
at the end of the waypoint name. The small letter is an aid that we
have added to the name of some waypoints to help you recognize
important points in the approach. These suffixes are displayed on
many of the KLN 89B pages. The definitions of these suffixes are:
i - The Initial Approach Fix (IAF) of the approach.
f - The Final Approach Fix (FAF) of the approach
m - The Missed Approach Point (MAP) of the approach
h - The Missed Approach Holding Point (MAHP) for the approach

Every approach will have a FAF and a MAP. Almost all will have an
IAF and missed approach holding point.

Another item that you should notice in
the flight plan is the line that has *NO
on it (figure 5-8). This is
what is referred to as a fence and the
purpose of this line is to tell you that
