ALPs are used by many organizations for planning, verifying
airport data, obstruction evaluation, project coordination,
and other studies. They also show whether the airport meets
the standards applicable to new instrument approach procedure
- Altimeter that meets flight
standards certification criteria for use as a altimeter setting
at the airport.
- A special instrument flight
procedure developed for a designated operator(s) according to

on a precision approach.
- Decision height: Missed approach point on
an ILS approach.
