Note

TAAs are associated with an RNAV procedure based upon the 'T' or 'Y' Arrangement. The Basic T approach segment configuration is the standard configuration for transition from the en route to the terminal environment. The standard arrangement consists of three TAAs: straight-in, right and left base.
