Explanation of Changes
Change 2

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

a. 2-1-6. Safety alert

This change clarifies the intent and application of Safety Alert procedures while taking into account new technology. Minor reformatting of the paragraph was necessary, including placing the information in subparagraph 2񩨂c (which applies solely to the issuance of a traffic alert) into the correct subparagraph. Examples of the correct phraseology for traffic alert issuance were deemed beneficial for clarity.

b. 2-1-30. 揵lue lightning events

This change adds the requirement to report possible human trafficking incidents to the front line manager. This change cancels and incorporates N JO 7110.583, Human Trafficking Reporting, effective June 18, 2012.

c. 4-5-6. MINIMUM EN ROUTE ALTITUDES

This change provides guidance to air traffic control for using GNSS MEAs on published ATS routes. This change cancels and incorporate N JO 7110.592, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Minimum En Route Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) Altitude (MEA), effective August 23, 2012.

d. 5-2-17. VALIDATION OF MODE C READOUT
9-2-7. IFR MILITARY TRAINING ROUTES

This change replaces the term 揷onfirm" with 搗erify" and will avoid potential confusion between pilots and controllers.

e. 5-5-4. MINIMA

This change adds the applicable radar separation minima for an ASR11 radar when using MSSR. This change cancels and incorporates N JO 7110.594, ASR11 Minima, effective September 4, 2012.

f. 5-8-2. INITIAL HEADING

This change requires ATC to advise aircraft of the initial waypoint for RNAV SIDs designed to begin at the runway. The pilot is expected to acknowledge the advisory as any other ATC communication. This change cancels and incorporates N JO 7110.595, Initial Heading, effective September 17, 2012.

g. 7-2-1. VISUAL SEPARATION

This change revises the requirement for aircraft to be under control of the same facility in the terminal area when applying visual separation. That requirement is replaced by mandatory letters of agreement or a facility directive to specify local procedures for applying visual separation. The procedures for tower璦pplied visual separation and pilot璦pplied visual separation are clarified. This change cancels and incorporates N JO 7110.590, Visual Separation, effective July 20, 2012.

h. 7-4-4. APPROACHES TO MULTIPLE RUNWAYS

This change makes editorial corrections and mandates that aircraft are assigned a heading to intercept the extended runway centerline at an angle not greater than 30 degrees when conducting approaches to runways separated by 4,300 feet or more. This change cancels and incorporates N JO 7110.593, Approaches to Multiple Runways, effective September 28, 2012.

i. APPENDIX A. AIRCRAFT INFORMATION FIXED WING AIRCRAFT
APPENDIX C. AIRCRAFT INFORMATION SPECIFIC HOMEBUILT/EXPERIMENTAL AIRCRAFT

This change updates information on aircraft type designator and/or operational information. This change cancels and incorporates N JO 7110.591, Aircraft Information: Appendices A and C, effective July 2, 2012.

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