DA, MDA Instrument Rating
For every approach chart, what do MDA/DA based on?
Someone told me there were based on the obstrucles. But I'm not sure about it.
Airport design? Terrain? or another considerations?

Well that’s a great question. Certainly obstacles play a role – but it’s more complicated than just that – things like nav-aid reception, terrain, traffic flows – all play a part. All the specifics are spelled out in a set of documents called TERP – you can check them out here – http://bit.ly/bCa45Q
