3 SM of visibility

hello! I am wondering, is it still possible to do a visual approach in 3 SM of visibility?

What, SM? Elaborate?

No need for the OP to elaborate.

The minimum for a visual approach, VFR flying, and pattern work is 3 statute miles (SM). However, if traffic levels are high, the approach controller may not be able to provide a visual approach.

To answer your question, 3 is okay for a visual approach, you can request it, but the controller may not give it to you. It all depends on the controller.


Ok, makes sense, thank you
