Which of the following options is correct for an LPV approach?
  • A
    It is a 2D Navigation approach.
  • B
    It is a non-precision approach.
  • C
    It is a precision approach.
  • D
    It is a radar precision approach available at military fields only.

Refer to figure.

Localiser Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) is defined as an Approach with Vertical Guidance (APV); that is, an instrument approach based on a navigation system that is not required to meet the precision approach standards of ICAO Annex 10 but that provides both course and glidepath deviation information.


  • RNP approach to Localiser Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) minima is a three-dimensional operation.
  • Even though LPV approaches have vertical guidance, they're not considered precision approaches. Instead, they're an approach with vertical guidance (APV).
