1. Final Approach Abnormalities

    What are the Final Approach Abnormalities?
    • - Safety limits are exceeded or radical target deviations are observed.
    • - Position or identification of the aircraft is in doubt.
    • - Radar contact is lost or a malfunctioning radar is suspected.
  2. Transfer Methods

    What are the Transfer Methods?
    • - Physically point to the target on the receiving controllers display.
    • - Use land-line voice communications.
    • - Use automation capabilities.
  3. Service Limitations

    When radar mapping is not available, limit radar services to?
    • - Separating identified aircraft targets.
    • - Vectoring aircraft to intercept a PAR final approach course.
    • - Providing radar service in areas that ensure no confliction with traffic on airways, other ATC
    • areas of jurisdiction, restricted or prohibited areas, terrain etc.
  4. Alignment Accuracy Check

    When are Alignment Accuracy Checks performed?
    • - During relief briefing.
    • - A.S.A.P. after assuming responsibility for the control position.
    • - Recheck periodically throughout the watch.
  5. Merging Target Procedures

    Except while established in a holding pattern apply merging target procedures to all radar identified:
    • - Aircraft at 10,000 feet and above.
    • - Turbojet aircraft regardless of altitude.
    • - Presidential aircraft regardless of altitude.
  6. Electronic Cursor

    How may it be used?
    • - May be used to aid in identifying and vectoring an aircraft and to give finer delineation to a video map.
    • - DO NOT use as a substitute for a video map or map overlay.
    • - Fixed Electronic Cursors may be used to form the final approach course for surveillance approaches conducted by military operated mobile radar facilities.
  7. Radar Service Terminated

    When is radar service automatically terminated and the aircraft needs not be advised of termination?
    • - Aircraft cancels IFR flight plan, except within Class B airspace, TRSA or where basic radar service is provided.
    • - An aircraft conducting an instrument, visual, or contact approach has landed or has been instructed to change advisory frequency.
    • - At tower controlled airports where radar coverage does not exist to within 1/2 mile of end of runway, arriving aircraft shall be informed when radar service is terminated.
    • - An aircraft completes a radar approach.
  8. Primary Radar Identification Methods

    What are the methods of identifying aircraft?
    • - Observing departing aircraft WITHIN 1 mile of the takeoff runway end at airports with an operating control tower provided averbal/nonverbal rolling/boundary notification is issued for each departing aircraft.
    • - Position Correlation
    • - Observing target make an turn or turns of 30 degrees or more.
  9. Beacon Identification Methods

    What are the methods of identifying aircraft?
    • - Ident, Ident observed
    • - Squawk a discrete code
    • - Squawk standby, squawk normal
  10. Position Information

    When do you need not give position call when Identifying aircraft?
    • - Position Correlation
    • - One mile off the departure end
  11. Identification Status

    Inform an aircraft of radar contact when?
    • - Initial radar identification in the ATC system is established.
    • - Subsequent to loss of radar contact or terminating radar service, radar identification is reestablished.
