Airport Chart Question

I was looking at a diagram for Boston Logan airport and I came across two different types of hold short lines, one being a “hold line” and one being a “visual hold line.” I would just like to know what the difference is between the two. :)

I believe the visual hold short means hold short in VMC, and the hold short is hold short in IMC, but @Aernout should confirm.

So when do pilots use Cat II/III
I’ve heard of a Cat I approach before, but I was never sure what it meant.

So a cat I approach is not when your pet cat sits with you in the cockpit.

Never seen that, maybe an FAA thing.

@Heavydriver maybe you can tell us?

With all due respect please don’t post things that are either irrelevant or you have no operational or classroom knowledge about. CAT II / III requires a lot more than the chart that you posted which has incorrect information. Not trying to be a curmudgeon but it really doesn’t apply here and it would take an indepth knowledge of instrument flying and air carrier operations to understand.

Best,

No CAT III b/c are air carrier and it-lane specific in the United States. There’s no blanketed rule and it requires a day worth of training 😳
