Preface

Why is the I-TTA 2.3 DME fix depicted as applying to localizer minimums

1.

It identifies the visual descent point, which only applies to non-precision approaches.

2.

It marks the latest point a pilot should begin descent below the MDA.

3.

Thatís the missed approach point for the localizer approach. The ILS decision altitude occurs closer to the runway.

4.

It identifies a final segment step-down fix.
