More Questions About The CFS

I got the latest copy of the CFS in the mail last week and took a quick glance at Buttonvilles page to see if they noted the new position of the tower. They did. but they also showed that the airport beacon moved as well.. which it has not. (green arrow)

One thing I didn’t notice before were these symbols, indicated by the red arrow. They have appeared on the airport diagram for quite a while (I went back to the August 30, 2007 CFS). The legend on page A49 doesn’t indicate what this symbol means. Anyone have any idea? My guess is that they are VASIS.

    Your guess is correct. Visual Glide Slope Indicators (VGSI) are shown as V.
    there are different types of V (e.g. V1, V2, V3 and Av) depending on the eye-to-wheel heights
