GROUND CONTROLLED APPROACH - A type of ground radar controlled precision instrument approach system used to land aircraft safely in conditions of very low visibility and cloud ceilings. This system is more commonly used at military airfields than at civil airports. (See PRECISION APPROACH) HAZARD - An advisory determination rendered by the FAA at the conclusion of an Aeronautical Study made under FAR 77 indicating the proposed structure is not a safe and/or efficient use of airspace.

IFR - See INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES.

IFR AIRPORT - An airport with an authorized instrument approach procedure.

IFR CONDITIONS - Weather conditions that require aircraft to be operated in accordance with instrument flight rules.

IFR MINIMUMS AND DEPARTURE PROCEDURES (FAR PART 91) - Prescribed takeoff rules. For some airports, obstructions or other factors require the establishment of nonstandard takeoff minimums or departure procedures, or both, to assist pilots in avoiding obstacles during climb to the minimum en route altitude.

ILS - See INSTRUMENT LANDING SYSTEM.

IMPACT - In environmental studies, the word “impact” is used to express the extent or severity of an environmental problem, e.g., the number of persons exposed to a given noise environment. As indicated in CEQ 1500 (Section 1508.8), impacts and effects are considered to be synonymous. Effects or impacts may be ecological, aesthetic, historic, cultural, economic, social, or health related, and they may be direct, indirect, or cumulative.

INM - See INTEGRATED NOISE MODEL.

INSTRUMENT APPROACH - An approach to an airport, with intent to land, by an aircraft flying in accordance with an IFR flight plan, when the visibility is less than 3 miles and/or when the ceiling is at or below the minimum initial altitude.

INSTRUMENT APPROACH RUNWAY - A runway served by an electronic aid providing at least directional guidance adequate for a straight-in approach.

INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES (IFR) - Rules specified by the FAA for flight under weather conditions in which visual reference cannot be made to the ground and the pilot must rely on instruments to fly and navigate.

INSTRUMENT LANDING SYSTEM (ILS) - A system that provides in the aircraft the lateral, longitudinal, and vertical electronic guidance necessary for an instrument landing.
