TOWER-CONTROLLED FIELD PROCEDURES
The overall intent of these procedures is to operate at a tower-controlled civilian field, although
they are quite similar for a military field. You will learn these procedures to maximize your
SNFO/SWSO contact training and provide invaluable exposure to new training environments.
These procedures are not, however, designed to make you an expert at civilian airport operations.
For example, procedures for Class B airspace are not included. For further self-study, if so
inclined, refer to AIMs and other appropriate FLIP publications.
When ready to proceed to the tower-controlled field:
1.
Obtain airport ATIS/AWOS information.
2.
Make initial radio call to approach/tower, as appropriate, per the following examples
(italics will vary with situation):
a. Class D, Tower, minimum 10 miles out:
"Airfield tower, Call Sign, VFR, 15 miles to the east, with information Alpha."
b. Class C, Approach Control, minimum 15 miles out:
"Mobile approach, Call Sign, VFR, 20 miles to the southeast of Mobile Regional, with
information Alpha, request." Approach will normally respond with a squawk code and
"Go ahead with request." Reply: "Call Sign, request VFR flight following to Mobile
Regional." Follow the controller's instructions to the airport. He/she will direct you to
contact tower, when appropriate.
NOTE
For tower or approach, if unable to obtain ATIS/AWOS, check in
on initial contact with "Negative Information" in place of
ATIS/AWOS.
3.
Situation-permitting, fly 200 KIAS. Once in radio contact with tower, the controller will
normally direct one of the following entries: straight-in, downwind entry, or base entry. Proceed
as follows:
