Section 5. Military Operations
6-5-1. SPECIAL MILITARY
a. Advise the ARTCC of flight notification
messages, progress reports, changes en route, and
related messages concerning Presidential or Vice
b. Alaska. In addition to the above, give advance
notice to all RCCs along the route of flight.
Telephone SARCC (907) 7520227 or (907)
7520128. Initiate communications search procedures if arrival is not received within 15 minutes after
ETA, and immediately notify Alaskan NORAD
Region Control Center (ANRCC).
6-5-2. MILITARY FOREIGN FLIGHTS
Generally, all military foreign flights are required to
clear through specified military bases. Pilots
normally will not file flight plans directly with an
FSS unless BASOPS is not available. BASOPS with
no Service B access will forward an ICAOtype flight
plan message via their tiein FSS for relay through the
Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunications Network
(AFTN). BASOPS should specify all addressees,
both ATC and operational, in accordance with ICAO
standards and military regulations.
6-5-3. USAF/USN UNDERGRADUATE
Aircraft piloted by solo USAF/USN undergraduate
student pilots (who may occasionally request revised
clearances), are normally restricted to flight in VFR
conditions. The aircraft identification in the flight
plan must include the letter “Z” as a suffix. Do not use
this suffix in groundtoair communication.
USAF/USN solo students who have passed an instrument
certification check may penetrate cloud layers in climb or
descent only. Requests for revised clearances to avoid
clouds in level flight can still be expected. This does not
change the requirement to use the letter “Z” as a suffix to
the aircraft identification.
6-5-4. MESSAGE HANDLING
Accept and forward messages from any military
authority that concern aircraft movement, national
defense, safety of flight, or emergencies. This
includes, but is not limited to, the following:
a. Flight Advisory Messages.
1. The FSS originating the advisory or receiving
it from the originating BASOPS must determine the
FSS nearest the aircraft's estimated position for VFR
flights, or the appropriate ARTCC for IFR flights.
Transmit a numbered message only to the facility
identified. Include in the text “FLT ADVY,” aircraft
identification and type, and route of flight, in that
order. The last item must be the identifier of the
originating BASOPS or FSS. Plain language may be
FLT ADVY A12345 T38 GVW J80 DAY
DAY WX BLO LNDG MIN. SUG PROCD CVG.
ADZ INTENTIONS DLVR 1625
2. Inform the originator if unable to deliver the
flight advisory within 15 minutes. Store the message
in the history files.
b. Electronic Counter Measure (ECM) Alerts.
Transmit a numbered message via Service B to tiein
stations serving the addressees. If acknowledgements
are not received within 1 hour, deliver via telephone.
c. REACH and SAM Flight Messages. Forward to
the airlift command post specified by the pilot if
message contains request “Pass to Air Mobility
Command & Airlift Command Post (AMC ACP),”
specified by the pilot.
