Some instrument approach plates include a list of groundspeeds and times from the FAF to the MAP. What is the real name for these time boxes?


Per the FAA Aeronautical Chart User’s Guide for Terminal Procedure Publications, in the revision effective 29 March 2018 on pages 30 and 31, it is a Time/Distance Table.

Time/Distance Table

When applicable, a Time/Distance Table is provided below the airport sketch. The table provides the distance and time that is required from the final approach fix to the missed approach point for select groundspeeds.
