U.S. Terminal Procedures Publications are published in 24 loose-leaf or perfect bound volumes covering the conterminous
U.S., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Included in the Terminal Procedures Publications are: 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
are designed to provide an IFR descent from the enroute environment to a point where a safe landing can be made. 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 established 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 have been developed to provide a pictorial display of these visual
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. Volumes are 5-3/8 x 8-1/4 inch, perfect-bound, or loose-leaf format. Loose-leaf volumes are
shrink-wrapped with four holes punched at the top. The volumes are revised every 56 days. Coverare of the U.S.
