IF PAPIs

Hello

Why IF papis are all of 2 lights instead of 4 like it should be.

There’s a difference between a PAPI and a VASI.

PAPI has the four lights to give a more precise glideslope (5 combinations). The ‘P’ stands for Precision.

VASI only has the two. The ‘V’ stands for Visual.

Airfields can have either depending on the approach for each runway.

You are comparing two different things with your pics I think (but the second one isn’t showing for me?).

Are you saying that the VASI is wrong and should be two over two? Or (I’m having a mind blank here) do we not have any four light PAPIs in IF?
