Abstract : This report documents a user centered survey and interview effort conducted to analyze the information content of current Instrument Approach Plates (IAP). In the pilot opinion survey of approach chart information requirements, respondents indicated their preferences for approach information and at what phase of the approach they preferred to see this information. Both precision and non-precision IAP formats were examined. In addition to the survey. focused interviews were conducted with pilots who represent the full spectrum of operational IAP user communities from major domestic air carriers to general aviation.
