Basically you have 2 types of runways, precision and non-precision. Non-precision is basically a runway that is used for visual approaches and can be very basic with just the runway numbers on it. Precision runways are used for instrument approaches and must have a few features such as the touchdown zone(the parallel lines at the first part of the runway), an aiming point(the two thick white lines), threshold and runway distance numbers.

You may want to check the link....there are in fact three types of runways that can have different markings.

I believe there are non-precision approaches that are more than just visual approaches. Not totally sure, but aren't VOR approaches non-precision?

Yes a VOR approach is non-precision.

Your precision approaches will provide a glideslope of some sort and include:
ILS, MLS, PAR

Non-precision approaches provide no glideslop information, and include:
LOC, VOR, VOR-DME, TACAN, GPS, NDB, ASR, BC, LDA, and SDF.

Well you are right there's also the visual runways like grass and dirt strips. They don't have vertical position guidance like the others do.

The non-precision approaches can usually get you down to about 700 feet. Precision approaches can get you down to 300 feet or even less.

There are paved visual runways as well, and they even have markings. It's all described in the AIM, linked by the first reply.

Let's see if the FAA allows hot linking:

In studying for the IFR exam, I see numerous references to nonpresicion approaches with vertical guidance--is this just when the localizer isn't aligned with the runway or something, or is their special equipment?

Also waterways...in places where seaplanes have to land at land-based airports. I'd love to see markings on one of those  Wink
