Subject:  Air Traffic Control
Includes: Change 1 dated 7/24/14 with Errata

Explanation of Changes
Basic

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

a. 2­1­1. ATC SERVICE

This change to Paragraph 2­1­1, better reflects the core values of the controller workforce.

b. 2­1­17. RADIO COMMUNICATIONS

This change clarifies the procedures to be used when transferring radio communications between facilities with/without the same name.

c. 2­1­20. WAKE TURBULENCE CAUTIONARY ADVISORIES

Due to wording in Paragraph 2­1­20, that does not convey the intent of the requirement when issuing a WTCA, Terminal Procedures issued GENOT 13/18 (N JO 7110.631) clarifying the requirement/procedure identified in Paragraph 2­1­20a. This change cancels and incorporates N JO 7110.669, Wake Turbulence Cautionary Advisories, effective March 28, 2014.

d. 3­4­20. RUNWAY STATUS LIGHTS (RWSL)

This change adds the requirements associated with N JO 7210.842, Guidance for the Use of Runway Status Lights (RWSL) Light System, into FAA Order JO 7110.65. The new paragraph provides guidance for the operation and periodic check of the RWSL system.

e. 3­7­2. TAXI AND GROUND MOVEMENT OPERATIONS

This change will establish uniform procedures and phraseology for approach hold areas.

f. 3­7­5. PRECISION APPROACH CRITICAL AREA

For those facilities that have had the middle marker decommissioned, this change identifies a distance (1/2 mile) from the approach end of the runway for protection of the Localizer Critical Area. This change also removed MLS from the required phraseology to advise pilots that the ILS Critical Area is not protected.

g. 3­9­7. WAKE TURBULENCE SEPARATION FOR INTERSECTION DEPARTURES

This paragraph has reverted to previous language.

h. 4­5­7. ALTITUDE INFORMATION

This change adds the option for air traffic controllers to issue time restrictions without reference to the UTC clock for aircraft in radar contact and in direct communication with the issuing controller.

i. 5­3­1. APPLICATION
5­5­1. APPLICATION

Guidance is being added to FAA Order JO 7110.65, applicable to aircraft transiting from oceanic airspace on non-radar offshore airspace to a radar coverage area where radar separation is applied.

j. 5­5­13. GPA 102/103 CORRECTION FACTOR

This paragraph has become obsolete and is no longer necessary. This change removes the paragraph from FAA Order JO 7110.65.

k. 5­9­9. SIMULTANEOUS INDEPENDENT CLOSE PARALLEL APPROACHES ­ HIGH UPDATE RADAR NOT REQUIRED

This proposal incorporates the data from the AFS simulation/analysis and will now permit closely spaced parallel approaches at airports with runway centerlines separated by a minimum of 3,600' and the field elevation less than 2,000' MSL.

l. 7­5­3. SEPARATION

This paragraph has reverted to previous language.

m. 7­9­4. SEPARATION

This change would remove the requirement to treat the V­22 Osprey as a fixed­wing aircraft while operating in Class B airspace and consider it at all times to be a helicopter as annotated in Appendix B.

n. 8­4­1. APPLICATION

This change removes the phrase “controlled by Houston ARTCC,” from FAA Order JO 7110.65, Paragraph 8­4­1, to facilitate future expansion of the current Offshore Grid System into the Jacksonville ARTCC Gulf of Mexico Low airspace.

o. 8­5­5. RADAR IDENTIFICATION APPLICATION

Adds Paragraph 8­5­5, Radar Identification Application, to the FAA Order JO 7110.65.

p. 8­7­3. LONGITUDINAL SEPARATION
8­8­3. LONGITUDINAL SEPARATION

This change adds a provision for 50 NM longitudinal (D50) separation and 30 NM lateral/30 NM longitudinal (30/30) separation within the New York Oceanic FIR.

q. 8­7­4. LATERAL SEPARATION
8­8­4. LATERAL SEPARATION

This change adds a provision for 30 NM lateral separation within the New York Oceanic FIR.

r. 10­5­1. NAVY FLEET SUPPORT MISSIONS

Paragraph 10-5-1, Navy Fleet Support Missions contains outdated and obsolete information, as determined by the U.S. Navy. Therefore, Paragraph 10-5-1 is deleted.

s. 13­2­2. CONFLICT DETECTION AND RESOLUTION

This change removes Paragraph 8­6­3, Temporary Moving Airspace Reservations listed as a conflict probe limitation in Chapter 13 of the 7110.65.

t. 13­2­4. CONTROLLER PILOT DATA LINK COMMUNICATIONS (CPDLC)

This change corrects the guidance for unanswered CPDLC messages in Chapter 13, Decision Support Tools, Section 2, Ocean21 ­ Oceanic, Paragraph 13­2­4 to comply with ICAO Global Operational Data Link Document (GOLD), Paragraph 2.2.1.5 which states: “When a clearance is sent to the aircraft, the controller continues to protect the airspace associated with the existing clearance until an appropriate operational response is received from the flight crew. If an expected operational response to a clearance is not received, the controller will initiate action to ensure that the clearance as received by the flight crew.”

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