Are there any airports with ILS working CATIIIC?

What do the charts for this procedure look like? Is there a missed approach procedure?

This is not implemented anywhere in the world.

Wikipedia:

As of 2012 this category is not yet in operation anywhere in the world as it requires guidance to taxi in zero visibility as well. Category IIIc is not mentioned in EU-OPS.

Airliners:

As far as I know NO airport in the world currently offers catIIIc as it has the most ridiculous minima both in the horizontal and vertical plane ...

  • $\begingroup$ "In operation" and "implemented" are two different things. The second link suggest that many airports have the equipment installed to do a IIIc landing (although not IIIc taxiing), as it's similar/the same equipment from the airport end $\endgroup$ – raptortech97 Apr 10 '15 at 2:45
  • $\begingroup$ Your "Airliners" source is not realiable since the explanation belongs to the year 2004, aprox. (airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=742695) $\endgroup$ – YisasL Oct 19 '16 at 7:53

There would still need to be a missed approach procedure, since plenty of things besides "not seeing the runway/lights" can cause the need for a go-around: equipment malfunction, traffic on the runway, winds shifting out of limits, etc. So no matter how "good" the approach is, it still has to have a defined missed approach procedure.

That procedure might well mirror the Cat I missed approach instructions. Not certainly, but they often do.
