U.S. Terminal Procedures Publications come as 24 loose-leaf or perfect bound volumes covering the conterminous U.S., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Included in the Terminal Procedures Publication:

  • Instrument Approach Procedure (IAP) Charts
  • Departure Procedure (DP) Charts
  • Instrument Approach Procedure (IAP) Charts Standard Terminal Arrival (STAR) Charts
  • Charted Visual Flight Procedures (CVFP)
  • Airport Diagrams
IAP Charts provide an IFR descent from the en-route environment to advise a pilot where to land safely. DP Charts are Air Traffic Control (ATC)-coded departure procedures that have been established at certain airports to simplify clearance delivery procedures. STAR Charts are ATC-coded IFR arrival routes created for certain airports to simplify clearance delivery procedures. CVFP's are an operational technique designed to move air traffic safely and expeditiously. In addition to conventional visual approach procedures, it has been necessary to specify routes/altitudes to enhance noise abatement at some locations. CVFP's provide a pictorial display of visible arrival routes. Airport Diagrams are specifically designed to assist in the movement of ground traffic at locations with complex runway/taxiway configurations and provide information for updating geodetic position navigational systems aboard aircraft.

U.S. military terminal instrument procedures and IFR airport information was added to the FAA's U.S. Terminal Procedures Publication and the Airport/Facility Directory in 2003. Please consult the Aeronautical Information Manual for information on the civil use of military instrument procedures and airports. The Special Notices section of the Airport/Facility Directory also contains information on the civil use of military fields.
