In ICAO's manual 8168 ("Aircraft Operations"), the term "Feeder route" is never mentioned. Instead, it states:
8168 Volume II, "Approach Procedures": 1.2.3. Segments of the approach procedure. An instrument approach procedure may have five separate segments. They are the arrival, initial,intermediate, final and missed approach segments.
My confusion concerns the difference between the arrival segment and a STAR. Does the arrival segment imply that it is also part of an arrival procedure, or is it just the equivalent of a feeder route, which is mentioned in FAA's TERPS?
Could someone help me clarify this?
