Section 1. General

  1. DISTANCE

Use mileage-based (DME and/or ATD) procedures and minima only when direct pilot/controller VHF or UHF voice communications are maintained.

  1. NONRECEIPT OF POSITION REPORT

When a position report affecting separation is not received, take action to obtain the report no later than 5 minutes after the aircraft was estimated over the fix.

REFERENCE-

FAA Order JO 7110.65, Para 9-2-7, IFR Military Training Routes.

  1. DUPLICATE POSITION REPORTS

Do not require an aircraft to make the same position report to more than one facility.

  1. ADJACENT AIRPORT OPERATION

TERMINAL

WAKE TURBULENCE APPLICATION

The ATC facility having control jurisdiction at adjacent airports must separate arriving or departing IFR aircraft on a course that will cross the flight path of an aircraft requiring wake turbulence separation in accordance with the following:

  1. Heavy, large, or small behind super - 3 minutes.
  2. Heavy, large, or small behind heavy - 2 minutes.
  3. Small behind B757 - 2 minutes.

  1. ARRIVAL MINIMA

TERMINAL

WAKE TURBULENCE APPLICATION

  1. Separate IFR aircraft landing behind an arriving aircraft to the same runway:
  1. Behind super:
  1. Heavy or large - 3 minutes.
  2. Small - 4 minutes.
  1. Behind heavy:
  1. Heavy or large - 2 minutes.
  2. Small - 3 minutes.
  1. Small behind B757 - 3 minutes.
  1. Separate IFR aircraft landing behind an arriving aircraft to a parallel runway separated by less than 2,500 feet, or a crossing runway if projected flight paths will cross:
