Instrument approach procedures are classified as follows: 1. Non-precision approach (NPA) procedure: An instrument approach procedure which utilizes lateral guidance but does not utilize vertical guidance; 2. Approach procedure with vertical guidance (APV): An instrument procedure which utilizes lateral and vertical guidance but does not meet the requirements established for precision approach and landing operations; 3. Precision approach (PA) procedure: An instrument approach procedure using precision lateral and vertical guidance with minima as determined by the category of operation.
