I'm a student pilot studying right-of-way and confused about the landing provisions. Right-of-way is determined first by aircraft category, and then by position. That makes sense.
But the last provision, on final, says the lower aircraft has the right away. Does that mean that the lower aircraft regardless of the category has the right-of-way, or does the lower aircraft only have the right-of-way when they are in the same category?
For instance, if a glider was on final but high, and a Cessna 172 was on final but lower/closer, who would have the right-of-way?
