Help on RNAV Approach Charts, going below MDA

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to push myself a bit more in the simulation and have been flying around Alaska in the sim.  I've found myself some not so awesome weather at PAJN and have been looking over the RWY 8 approaches.  My question is based on the RNAV approach at PAJN (http://155.178.201.160/d-tpp/1613/01191RV8.PDF). 

 

1. What is LNAV MDA vs LNAV MDA* on the bottom of the chart?  The only other asterick I see on the chart is next to the tower frequency. 

 

2. If I understand things correctly, I can descend down to 125' barometric if I see the runway lead in lights by MDA (2340' vs 1880' depending on what the asterisk)?  Principally I'm trying sort out what I need to see centerline markings for vs centerline AND threshold/TDZ markings for?

Look just above the ATIS Frequency. "Missed Approach requires minimum climb of 363 feet per NM to 3200."
