responsibility for issuing advance approach information to a specific
position when more than one position could issue the data.
Responsibility must be delegated in a directive in accordance with

is accessible to the controllers having need for it.

minimum IFR altitude information for each control sector and display
them at the sector. This must include off-airway minimum IFR altitude
information to assist controllers in applying 14 CFR Section 91.177
for off-airway vectors and direct route operations. Facility air
traffic managers must determine the appropriate chart/map method for
displaying this information at the sector. Forward charts and chart
data records to the FIFO for certification and annual review.

sector charts or MVA charts. Special translucent sectional charts are
also available. Special ordering information is contained in FAAO

frequencies (296.7, 321.3, 364.8 and 369.9MHz) are controller-to-pilot
communication channels established to minimize frequency changes for
certain military aircraft operating in the high altitude sectors. The
specific frequencies must not be publicized. However, information
concerning their authorized use may be published in official military
documents or in agency directives.
To the extent
practicable, each ARTCC should provide IFR separation to aircraft not
on IFR flight plans conducting practice instrument approaches to
airports where that ARTCC provides approach control service.
locations where IFR separation is applied to VFR aircraft conducting
practice instrument approaches and that airport has a nonapproach
control tower or a FSS, provisions for handling such aircraft must be included in a
letter of agreement.
must issue a letter to airmen advising users of airports where IFR
separation is provided for VFR aircraft conducting practice instrument
approaches. The letter should include appropriate frequencies for the
