CHAPTER THREE
SNFO/SWSO VOICE COMMUNICATIONS
311. REQUESTING SLIGHT ROUTE CHANGES
Let's use Figure 3-4 to illustrate a simple route change. Assume that 50 miles northeast of
Harvey (HRV) on J31, you are a little behind in your fuel planning and would like to go direct to
SJI. Your destination will remain Navy Pensacola. It is an easy request to cut off a leg of your
flight:
Example
SNFO/SWSO:
"Houston Center, BUCK 716, request present
position direct SJI, then as filed."
If your aircraft can be safely cleared, they will respond:
CENTER:
"BUCK 716, cleared direct SJI, rest of route
unchanged."
SNFO/SWSO:
"BUCK 716, direct SJI, rest of route unchanged."
Remember to always read back any portion of a clearance that contains altitude assignments or
vectors. The remainder of the clearance can be "rogered" unless potential confusion exists.
If on the chart your requested route had cut across another Center's airspace (i.e., Memphis
Center's airspace), you could expect delay:
Example
CENTER:
"BUCK 716, I have your request," or "BUCK
716, standby."
312. VECTORS
ATC often gives aircraft a vector in a climb or descent, or simply to separate traffic:
Example
CENTER:
"BUCK 715, turn left 300, vector for traffic."
SNFO/SWSO:
"BUCK 715, left 300."
Enroute vectors are common. Maintain an awareness of your position at all times but don't
worry about heading off course. The controller is fully aware of where you need to be going and
will eventually get back to you. When put on a vector be prepared to pick up the navigation
when he says "resume your own navigation" direct to a station or back to the airway.
When you are on a vector and then told to switch frequencies, a modified check-in call is
necessary to remind the new controller.
