  • 2-1-12. MILITARY PROCEDURES

    Military procedures in the form of additions, modifications, and exceptions to the basic FAA procedure are prescribed herein when a common procedure has not been attained or to fulfill a specific requirement. They must be applied by:

    1. ATC facilities operated by that military service.
      • EXAMPLE
      • 1. An Air Force facility providing service for an Air Force base would apply USAF procedures to all traffic regardless of class.
      • 2. A Navy facility providing service for a Naval Air Station would apply USN procedures to all traffic regardless of class.
    2. ATC facilities, regardless of their parent organization (FAA, USAF, USN, USA), supporting a designated military airport exclusively. This designation determines which military procedures are to be applied.
      • EXAMPLE
      • 1. An FAA facility supports a USAF base exclusively; USAF procedures are applied to all traffic at that base.
      • 2. An FAA facility provides approach control service for a Naval Air Station as well as supporting a civil airport; basic FAA procedures are applied at both locations by the FAA facility.
      • 3. A USAF facility supports a USAF base and provides approach control service to a satellite civilian airport; USAF procedures are applied at both locations by the USAF facility.
    3. Other ATC facilities when specified in a letter of agreement.
      • EXAMPLE
      • A USAF unit is using a civil airport supported by an FAA facility- USAF procedures will be applied as specified in a letter of agreement between the unit and the FAA facility to the aircraft of the USAF unit. Basic FAA procedures will be applied to all other aircraft.
