This 23 day course is designed to prepare
international participants to work in a
non-radar environment. The course is
structured around ICAO rules but incorporates
some FAA technique to enhance
the program. The course combines classroom
instruction with lab exercises to
emphasize the concept of non-radar control.
At the conclusion of this course, participants
will be able to:
- Manually prepare arrival, departure,
and overflight flight progress strips
using approved abbreviations and symbols.
- Identify the components of vertical
separation including procedures, minima
and phraseology in compliance
with ICAO Document 4444.
- Apply lateral separation methods
including protected airspace procedures
and minima on diverging tracks.
- Identify the separation minima for aircraft
on the same, converging, crossing,
or reciprocal direction courses; for aircraft climbing or descending through
the altitude of another aircraft; and
when applying DME procedures.
- Identify the terms associated with holding
aircraft, the procedures for holding
aircraft and the phraseology used for
issuing holding instructions.
- Understand the different types of coordination
used by the procedural controller
including the types, methods,
- State the concepts and requirements
associated with aerodrome departures
in the procedural control environment.
- Apply nonradar separation minima
between departing and arriving aircraft
and identify different types of
- State the requirements for conducting
timed approaches and apply missed
- List emergency conditions and categories,
emergency assistance proce-dures,
and the procedures used to handle
lost or strayed aircraft in accordance
with ICAO documents and annexes.
