Effective Date:
April 3, 2014
 
     
Subject:  Facility Operation and Administration
       

Explanation of Changes
Basic

Direct questions through appropriate facility/service center office staff
to the office of primary responsibility (OPR)
 

a. 2-3-1. GENERAL
2-3-2. APPLICATION
2-3-3. REQUIREMENTS
2-3-5. TRACKING
The new requirements better align employee primary job functions with the numbers of currency positions and enhance time per position requirements. A draft new policy and tool to assist in monitoring compliance were circulated to the field to solicit feedback. Compliance verification requires increased facility administration efforts, depending on facility type, level, and prior local policy. Facility managers are also tasked to establish quality control measures to track and report compliance with the new currency requirements. Lastly, a new report/tool was developed to assist facility managers in this effort.

b. 6񪏙. MTR (IR) AND CHANGES TO PUBLISHED MOA ACTIVITY SCHEDULES
This change removes obsolete references and procedures from FAA JO 7210.3, Paragraph 6񪏙, and adds a new reference for changing MTR and MOA published activity schedules. References to FAA JO 7110.10, Flight Services, Paragraph 6񪶭, are removed and replaced with a reference to FAA JO 7930.2, Notices to Airmen (NOTAM), Paragraph 6񩧾.

c. 6-9-6. EQUIPMENT SUFFIX AND DISPLAY MANAGEMENT
This change eliminates /Q as a valid NAS equipment suffix, adds other suffixes that include RVSM capability, indicates how RVSM capability is filed in an ICAO Flight Plan, and clarifies how the system uses and displays RVSM information.

d. 10񪣇. SIMULTANEOUS INDEPENDENT CLOSE PARALLEL APPROACHES HIGH UPDATE RADAR NOT REQUIRED
