sometimes JEPPESEN approach chart shows low visibility landing minima as RVR in meter or sometimes just R in meter. What is difference….

    $\begingroup$ Please provide examples of what you're referring to; it's much easier to answer this sort of question, and the information is more meaningful to others, when we can all see these expressions in context. Thanks! $\endgroup$

There are different cases.

  1. The RVR is provided by a State authority, State is mentioned in the top left corner and R is used instead of RVR.

    enter image description here

  2. For minimums provided by EASA AOM

    State is replaced by Std/State (Standard up to 2020), and RVR is used. But:

    For separate minimums listings (like 10-9S pages) RVR, CMV and VIS are abbreviated as “R”, “C” and “V”.

  3. Since 2022, for EASA AOM:

    RVR is also abbreviated by "R", both for landing and takeoff:

    enter image description here

    Straight-in landing minimums will be shown as RVR with prefix “R”, as provided within the EASA tables. A Visibility, prefixed "V", will only be charted if a VIS value is published as State minimum. The prefix “VIS” may still be used on older charts

    Take -off minimums are shown as RVR “R”, as VIS “V” or as RVR/VIS “R/V”. Values which could be either RVR or VIS may be depicted without any prefix on older charts.

    A Visibility, prefixed "V", will only be charted for take- off if a VIS value is published as State minimum. For separate minimums listings (like 10-9S pages) RVR, CMV and VIS are always abbreviated as “R”, “C” and “V”.
