Text - Initial Contact With Center
NOTE: On initial contact with Center, pilots
should advise controllers of their exact altitude
preceded by "climbing," "descending," or "level."
If initiating a climb or descent, the call will
include the altitude leaving and the final altitude.
Exact altitude or flight level means to the
nearest 100-ft increment. The exact altitude or
flight level report on initial contact provides ATC
with information required prior to relying on
MODE C altitude information for separation
When not on a published route, SID or LID;
such as climb on course, pilots should include
present position and exact altitude on initial
contact with Air Traffic Control following handoff.
