SNFO/SWSO VOICE COMMUNICATIONS
CHAPTER FOUR
411. NORDO PROCEDURE
It is important to provide regulations and procedures applicable to all possible situations
associated with a two-way radio communications failure. When confronted with a situation not
covered in the regulation, aircrews are expected to exercise good judgment in whatever actions
are taken. The emergency procedures section of the Flight Information Handbook provides a
handy in-flight reference for two-way radio failure.
412. MALFUNCTION
FAA regulations require a malfunction report be given when operating in controlled airspace
under IFR. The aircrew shall report immediately to ATC any in-flight malfunction of
navigational or communication capability. Only report those malfunctions that affect ability to
continue IFR operations. Each report shall include the following:
1.
Aircraft identification
2.
Equipment affected
3.
The degree your capability to operate IFR is impaired
4.
The nature and extent of assistance desired from Air Traffic Control
The exact nature and degree of assistance available from the ATC system will vary considerably.
It is essential the aircrew inform the controller of any assistance needed. Some examples of what
ATC can do for you include vectors to the nearest divert field, calling ahead to an airfield so
arresting gear are ready or crash trucks are standing by, and maintaining traffic separation while
you rid the cockpit of smoke. If no assistance is required, normal handling may be expected. If
special handling is requested, the ATC controller will provide the maximum amount of
assistance consistent with the equipment available. Should the circumstances warrant greater
attention and priority handling with respect to other IFR aircraft, the aircrew should declare an
emergency.
413. MINIMUM FUEL AND EMERGENCY FUEL
Minimum fuel is an advisory term indicating that in the judgment of the aircrew, their fuel state
is such that no undue delays can be accepted enroute to destination. This is not an emergency
situation, but informs the controller that any undue delays may result in an emergency fuel
situation. Pilots declaring minimum fuel should not expect special handling from FAA
controllers.
Emergency fuel shall be reported as fuel remaining in minutes. Emergency fuel warrants
special handling. Declaring emergency fuel tells the controller you can accept no delays.
