Hi Ejector,

Two-dimensional (2D) instrument approach operations, using lateral navigation guidance only, e.g. a VOR,NDB,RNAV approach or

Three-dimensional (3D) instrument approach operations, using both lateral and vertical navigation guidance, e.g. an ILS,GLS, Lnav/Vnav approach.

Has to be in the running for the most ridiculous nomenclature ever in aviation history.

I wonder how much a " committee " got paid to come up with that ?

Thanks folks for the quick replay and link.

Maybe Icarus is still operating before 1966, and sees this as a "Twopence and threepence" approach?

Well at least it's fixed up the recency nonsense where the easiest approach had a 35 day recency and the hardest approach had a 90 day one...

The only country in the world to use such terminology-must be correct! Australian 'uniqueness' again!!!!

So was precision and non precision. What improvement has this change added? Really.

This cyclic and part 61 now shows that where we were once dangerous if we did an approach outside of 30/90 days and now we are not. Recency shmecency.

OK I will be more specific-no one else (that I am aware of) specifies it on an Instrument Rating using that terminology. The generic term Instrument Rating is what is commonly used.
