There are at least two symbols for the RVR representation on Jeppesen charts.

But I can't seem to find the definition for those. By any chance would you guys care to explain what each one means?


  • $\begingroup$ Which airports has these symbols? $\endgroup$

According to Introduction to Jeppesen Navigation Charts (available at the Jeppesen Website), or alternatively at JeppView Software > Text > Airway Manual > Introduction > Chart Legend Information:

RVR measurement equipment symbols are mentioned in:

  1. Airport Planview

    11 - When known, the location of RVR transmissiometers are shown with any applicable identifiers.

    This means that the letters indicate identification of the equipment assigned by the local authority. We can see examples of this:

  2. In this chart for ENGM (Oslo, Norway), you can see that the RVR equipment symbols are not labeled "R" or "L" for the respective runways or for their position along the runway (touchdown, mid-field, rollout):

  3. In this chart for EDDH (Hamburg, Germany), you can see an instance of the labeled RVR equipment symbols:

    RWY touchdown mid-field rolllout
    23 "A" "B" N/A
    05 "C" N/A N/A
    33 N/A N/A N/A
    15 "E" "F" "G"
