  • 2-1-30. TERRAIN AWARENESS WARNING SYSTEM (TAWS) ALERTS

    1. When an aircraft under your control jurisdiction informs you that it is responding to a TAWS (or other on-board low altitude) alert, do not issue control instructions that are contrary to the TAWS procedure that a crew member has advised you that they are executing. Provide safety alerts regarding terrain or obstructions and traffic advisories for the aircraft responding to the TAWS alert and all other aircraft under your control jurisdiction, as appropriate.
    2. Once the responding aircraft has begun a maneuver in response to TAWS alert, the controller is not responsible for providing approved separation between the aircraft that is responding to a TAWS alert and any other aircraft, airspace, terrain or obstructions. Responsibility for approved separation resumes when one of the following conditions are met:
      1. The responding aircraft has returned to its assigned altitude, or
      2. A crew member informs you that the TAWS maneuver is completed and you observe that approved separation has been reestablished, or
      3. The responding aircraft has executed an alternate clearance and you observe that approved separation has been reestablished.
