The Plan View shows a depiction as if looking
down on top of the airfield, NAVAIDS and terrain. It shows the basic flight path
to follow as well as other helpful items.
This overhead view is used primarily to get
the plane to the approach area as well as directional guidance needed for
alignment with the proper approach route. Once inside the 10nm circle,
everything is drawn to scale for better use.
It also provides locations of fixes, intersections, points,
radials, holding areas, missed approach turns, and more !
