SNFO/SWSO VOICE COMMUNICATIONS
CHAPTER THREE
5.
Advise when at Decision Height (DH) or Missed Approach Point (MAP).
6.
Advise when over landing threshold (end of runway).
The final controller receives the clearance to land from Tower. The final controller will then
issue this clearance to you on your descent (normally 2-3 miles from touchdown). Even though
he has previously instructed you to not acknowledge further transmissions, this is an exception
and you will repeat the landing clearance.
Example
FINAL CONTROLLER:
"BUCK 722, winds 080 at 15, cleared to land
runway 7 Right."
SNFO/SWSO:
"BUCK 722, cleared to land 7 Right."
Be alert for the missed approach instructions or climbout instructions if doing multiple
approaches. The controller may issue different missed approach instructions from those
published on your approach plate. Remember the missed approach instructions on the approach
plate are for the radio instrument approach, NOT the GCA. The GCA missed approach
instructions are issued prior to beginning your descent. Altitudes and headings should be read
back for mutual understanding. When the weather is VMC, controllers may not issue missed
approach instructions when you intend to land; however, expect climbout instructions if you plan
to execute a touch and go.
Example
CONTROLLER:
"KATT 813, climbout instructions are runway
heading to 800 feet, 2 DME past the TACAN,
turn right 180, climb and maintain1500."
SNFO/SWSO:
"KATT 813, runway heading to 800, at 2 DME,
right 180, then climb and maintain 1500."
The controller may also issue Lost Communication Instructions, especially if the weather is not
VMC.
Example
CONTROLLER:
"If no transmissions received for 1 minute in the
pattern or 5 (PAR Approach) seconds on final,
attempt to contact tower on 265.8 and proceed
VFR. If unable to proceed VFR, intercept the
TACAN final for runway 7R, maintain 1500 until
the FAF."
