There is some discussion going around our operations department on if we need to have PAPIs in-service during CAT II ILS Operations. Discussions with our Tower and FAA equipment repair techs has not getten us any closer to an answer. Interested to hear what others think on this.
Scenerio: The Airport is operating under Category II operations with an active ILS. Does the PAPI system for that runway need to be operational to be within compliance?
