Preface

I thought RVV was the definition of Runway Visual Range. Since it isn’t, what’s RVR? (May have multiple answers.)

1.

RVR is slant-range distance measured in hundreds of feet.

2.

RVR is more realistic than RVV.

3.

RVR is instrument-measured visibility down a runway, measured in hundreds of feet.

4.

Itís only used by airliners at big airports.
