ORDER
JO 7110.65V
Effective Date:
April 3, 2014
 
     
Subject:  Air Traffic Control
 

Explanation of Changes
Basic

Direct questions through appropriate facility/service center office staff
to the Office of Primary Interest (OPI)

a. 1­2­6. ABBREVIATIONS
This change incorporates the acronym ISR into the order and is a companion DCP for the Pilot/Controller Glossary (P/CG) definition of ISR.

b. 2­3­8. AIRCRAFT EQUIPMENT SUFFIX
2­3­9. CLEARANCE STATUS
4­1­2. EXCEPTIONS
4­3­2. DEPARTURE CLEARANCES
4­3­3. DEPARTURE CLEARANCES
4­4­1. ROUTE USE
4­4­2. ROUTE STRUCTURE TRANSITIONS
4­4­4. ALTERNATIVE ROUTES
4­7­1. CLEARANCE INFORMATION
5­1­10. DEVIATION ADVISORIES
5­5­1. APPLICATION
6­4­3. MINIMA ON OPPOSITE COURSES
6­5­4. MINIMA ALONG OTHER THAN ESTABLISHED AIRWAYS OR ROUTES
6­5­5. RNAV MINIMA- DIVERGING/ CROSSING COURSES

This change implements revised ATC procedures for GNSS-equipped aircraft operating on RNAV ATS routes and on random point-to-point and random impromptu routes in airspace in which ATC procedures are applied, excluding oceanic airspace. Expanded explanation of GNSS equipment suffixes and random routes is provided with references added. Additionally, this change incorporates use of the term GNSS in place of GPS for space-based positioning and navigation systems where /G equipage is required.

c. 2­4­17. NUMBERS USAGE
Terminal Operations, Headquarters, does not agree that changing the EXAMPLE to PHRASEOLOGY is appropriate for this request. This section deals with how controllers state required words and phrases. It is important to also note that the definition of an EXAMPLE, as stated in Paragraph 1­2­5, ANNOTATIONS, and the subsequent note, remain sufficient for this purpose. The proposed addition to FAA Order JO 7110.65, Paragraph 2­4­17g, provides clear guidance that controllers must issue gusts when they are observed within the weather sequence.

d. 2­6­4. WEATHER AND CHAFF SERVICES
Deviation phraseology will include clearance to deviate and turn back to the aircraft's route after safe avoidance of weather. Additional 4th line entries are provided that include a range of headings or an “up to" number of degrees. Much of the deleted/added data was merely moved for clarity and flow.

e. 3­1­2. PREVENTATIVE CONTROL
This change amends paragraph 3­1­2 contained in FAA Order 7110.65, Air Traffic Control, by adding to a note that LOAs are replaced with Airfield Operating Instructions (OIs), Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs), or other specific directives in respect to DoD facilities.

f. 4­2­5. ROUTE OR ALTITUDE AMENDMENTS
4­3­2. DEPARTURE CLEARANCES
4­3­3. ABBREVIATED DEPARTURE CLEARANCES
4­5­7. ALTITUDE INFORMATION

This change incorporates guidance on the use of “climb via" (CV) phraseology for route transitions and/or the assignment of SID/RNAV SID procedures incorporating speed and altitude restrictions. The CV phraseology is incorporated for departure operations, consistent with existing “descend via" phaseology.

g. 4­4­2. ROUTE STRUCTURE TRANSITIONS
This removes Flight Management System Procedures (FMSP) from the paragraph.

h. 4­8­1. APPROACH CLEARANCE
Changes to this paragraph were briefed prior to its implementation through a tasking memorandum issued by both Terminal and En Route Directors effective July 31, 2013. There is one minor editorial change concerning Radius to Fix (RF) legs to ensure that conveyed guidance is not only contained in a Note, but added as procedural guidance in this DCP. This change cancels GENOT N JO 7110.620, same subject.

i. 5­2­24. INOPERATIVE OR MALFUNCTIONING ADS­B TRANSMITTER
5­5­4. MINIMA

Provides direction when an aircraft has an inoperative or malfunctioning ADS­B transmitter.

j. 5­4­11. EN ROUTE FOURTH LINE DATA BLOCK USAGE
Deviation phraseology will include clearance to deviate and turn back to the aircraft's route after safe avoidance of weather. Fourth line entries now have specific route requirements and receiving controller route responsibilities.

k. 5­5­7. PASSING OR DIVERGING
This change cancels and incorporates the changes made by GENOT N JO 7110.633.

l. 5­5­9. SEPARATION FROM OBSTRUCTIONS
Due to the addition of FUSION related material to FAA Order JO 7110.65, Paragraph 5­5­4, Minima, sub­paragraphs were re­lettered accordingly. This change updates that new sub­paragraph structure.

m. 5­7­1. APPLICATION
5­7­2. METHODS
5­7­4. TERMINATION

This change incorporates the phrase “resume published speed" and clarifies the requirement to advise pilots where to resume published speeds when speed adjustments are no longer needed on procedures with published speed restrictions.

n. 5­9­9. SIMULTANEOUS INDEPENDENT CLOSE PARALLEL APPROACHES - HIGH UPDATE RADAR NOT REQUIRED
This change creates a new paragraph.

o. 5­9­10. SIMULTANEOUS OFFSET INSTRUMENT APPROACHES (SOIA)- HIGH UPDATE RADAR
This change incorporates specially designed instrument approach procedures at airports currently conducting SOIA. This change allows air traffic control personnel to conduct simultaneous offset instrument approaches to parallel runways with centerlines separated by less than 3,000 feet where approach charts specifically authorize simultaneous operations with adjacent runways. This change deletes reference to ILS/MLS/LDA approaches and changes localizer/azimuth course to final approach course. This change also introduces reference to "Lead Straight In" and "Trailing Offset" aircraft and/or approaches.

p. 5­15­4. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
This change provides direction for the use of FUSION in terminal automation systems. Specifically, displaying assigned and reported altitude and the use of automatic altitude readout.

q. 7­6­1. APPLICATION
7­7­3. SEPARATION
7­8­3. SEPARATION
7­9­4. SEPARATION

This change provides guidance for applying separation when ISR is displayed.

r. 7­6­7. SEQUENCING
Due to the addition of FUSION related material to FAA Order JO 7110.65, Paragraph 5­5­4, Minima, sub­paragraphs were re­lettered accordingly. This change updates that new sub­paragraph structure.

s. Entire Publication
Additional editorial/format changes were made where necessary. Revision bars were not used because of the insignificant nature of these changes.
