. Every IFR pilot (and IFR magazine reader) should be familiar with the term STAR, which stands for Standard Terminal Arrival Route -- published routes designed (as per AIM 9-1-4) to "expedite ATC arrival procedures and to facilitate transition between en route and instrument approach operations." Every pilot -- IFR or VFR -- should know about ATC's STARS. It's not the TRACON's basketball team but, instead, is an approach control tool that means:a. Special Terminal Approach Radar Systemb. Standard Terminal Automation Radar Systemc. Standard Terminal Automation Replacement Systemd. Sequence Tool Air Route Systeme. Standard Tired Automatic Request Squelcher (FAA's "Just Say No" tool)
