RTC – MOD-06 – Pt.09 – Radar to Visual
A Radar to Visual (R2V) Recovery is used when the aircraft is either in IMC or will have to transit through IMC to get into a position they become visual with the aerodrome, BUT the VCCT is VMC and acceptable for use.
Aircraft can request a R2V recovery from ATC to vector them to the initial point to safely get visual with the aerodrome.
The full details of this type of approach will be covered in a later lesson.
