Conversion of reported meteorological visibility to RVR
<strong>Conversion of reported meteorological visibility to RVR</strong>

1. An operator must ensure that a meteorological visibility to RVR conversion is not used for calculating take-off minima, Category II or III minima or when a reported RVR is available.
Note: If the RVR is reported as being above the maximum value assessed by the aerodrome operator, e.g. “RVR more than 1 500 metres”, it is not considered to be a reported RVR in this context and the Conversion Table may be used.

2. When converting meteorological visibility to RVR in all other circumstances than those above, an operator must ensure that the following Table is used:

<strong>Table 9

<th>Lighting elements in operation</th><th>Day</th><th>Night</th>

<tr>
<td>HI approach and runway lighting</td><td>1,5</td><td>2,0</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Any type of lighting installation other than above</td><td>1,0</td><td>1,5</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>No lighting</td><td>1,0</td><td>Not applicable</td>
