straight-in approach

straight-in approach
i. An entry into an airport traffic-pattern in VFR (visual flight rules) conditions by intercepting the extended runway centerline without executing any portion of the traffic pattern.
ii. In IFR (instrument flight rules), an instrument approach in which the final approach is begun without first executing a procedure turn. A straight-in approach need not necessarily terminate with a straight-in landing.
