Converted Meteorological Visibility

RVR (Runway Visual Range) is considered to be better representation of expected distance that the pilot may acquire visual cues on approach than meteorological office reported horizontal visibility. Effect of lighting intensities and background luminescence play a role when establishing an RVR. Due to commercial or other reasons RVR may not be available at all …
