  • Taxiway Lead Off/On – Alternating green and yellow
runway lighting1
Runway Lighting
  • Land and Hold Short – Flashing white
    • Row of lights
  • Runway End Identifier (REIL) – Flashing white
  • Runway Edge – White, yellow, red, green
    • Yellow is the last 2,000 ft or half (shortest)
    • Red on end of runway, green on approach

Other Markings
  • Runway Distance Remaining
  • Ground Receiver Checkpoint

Airport Beacons
  • White/Green – Civilian Airport
  • White/Yellow – Seaport
  • White/White/Green – Military
  • White/Yellow/Green - Heliport
land and hold short
Land And Hold Short
  • Controller can clear a pilot for LAHSO when there is an intersecting runway
  • Pilot must determine if there is enough Available Runway Distance
  • Pilot in Command has final authority to accept clearance (cannot be forced)
wake turbulence
Wake Turbulence
  • Large Aircraft generate large wingtip vortices
  • Vortex generation is governed by weight, speed and shape of wing
    • Heavy, slow, and clean configuration gives the greatest vortex strength
wake turbulence1
Wake Turbulence
  • Small aircraft must be separated from large and heavy aircraft by 3 minutes
  • 3 minute separate rule does not apply
    • Parallel runway father than 2500 ft
    • When departure point is within 500 ft
    • When PIC waivers the rule
  • 3 minute rule cannot be waived if behind a heavy aircraft
wake turbulence2
Wake Turbulence
  • Land/Takeoff before the rotation point of an airplane that just took off
  • Land/Takeoff after the touchdown point of an airplane that just landed
unexpected maneuvers
Unexpected Maneuvers
  • ATC services is based on observed or known traffic
    • Controllers establish sequence and spacing
  • Controllers can anticipate minor maneuvers like ‘S’ turns
  • Controllers cannot anticipate 360 turns
    • Must request or be asked by ATC
intersection takeoffs
Intersection Takeoffs
  • Pilots are expected to taxi to the beginning of the runway
  • Pilot can request intersection takeoff
special vfr
Special VFR
  • Must be done in controlled airspace only
  • Clearance must be obtained from ATC when in class B, C, D airports
  • Clearance must be obtained from nearest tower, FSS, or center when in class E airport
special vfr1
Special VFR
  • Must be requested by pilot
  • Weather Requirements
    • Visibility of at least 1 statute mile
    • Remain clear of clouds
  • At night
    • Pilot and aircraft must be IFR certified
surveillance environment
Surveillance Environment
  • Surveillance is available at class B, C and D TRSA (Terminal Radar Service Area)
  • Initial contact is made with approach control
  • Altitude should be reported along with position
surveillance environment1
Surveillance Environment
  • Upon departing, initial contact is often made with Clearance Delivery
    • Type aircraft, location on field, course heading, requested altitude, ATIS.
  • Ground is simply contacted for taxi clearance
  • After tower you will be transferred to departure
surveillance environment2
Surveillance Environment
  • A Mode C transponder is required for most surveillance environments
  • Mode C is altitude encoding which means the controller can see your altitude
  • Why is the altitude off in the 172R transponder?
surveillance equipment
Surveillance Equipment
  • Radar
    • Radio waves bounce off targets
    • Has limitations and so the pilot is still required to ‘see and avoid’
    • Waves can be bent by temperature inversions
    • Line of sight only
    • Low altitude aircraft are harder to see

ATC Radar Beacon System (ATCRSB)

    • Like a “secondary” radar system
    • Reinforces primary radar and aids in rapid target identification
    • Includes interrogator, transponder, and radarscope
surveillance equipment1
Surveillance Equipment
  • ASR – Surveillance Radar
    • Often used for non-precision radar appraoches
  • PAR – Precision Approach Radar
    • Used for precision radar approaches
  • Airport Surface Detection Equipment (ADSE)
    • Provides ground radar surveillance
    • Some transponders have ground mode
interception procedures
Interception Procedures

“Identification intercepts during peacetime operations are vastly different than those conducted under increased states of readiness.”

Here are the peacetime procedures…

interception procedures3
Interception Procedures
  • If intercepted contact air traffic control immediately or guard 121.5
  • “If the U.S. military intercepts an aircraft and flares are dispensed in the area of that aircraft, aviators will pay strict attention!!!!!!”
interception procedures4
Interception Procedures
  • Phase One
    • Aircraft will be approached from the stern
    • Two aircraft will attempt identification
  • Phase Two
    • Intercepted aircraft should expect to visually acquire the lead interceptor
    • They will get closer to read your tail number
interception procedures5
Interception Procedures
  • Phase 3
    • After identification, flight leader will turn away followed by wingman
