  • 4-7-11. ARRIVAL INFORMATION BY APPROACH CONTROL FACILITIES

    1. Forward the following information to nonapproach control towers soon enough to permit adjustment of the traffic flow or to FSSs soon enough to provide local airport advisory where applicable:
      1. Aircraft identification.
      2. Type of aircraft.
      3. ETA.
      4. Type of instrument approach procedure the aircraft will execute; or
      5. For SVFR, the direction from which the aircraft will enter Class B, Class C, Class D, or Class E surface area and any altitude restrictions that were issued; or
      6. For aircraft executing a contact approach, the position of the aircraft.

      NOTE: Specific time requirements are usually stated in a letter of agreement.

    2. Forward the following information to the tower when the tower and TRACON are part of the same facility:
      1. Aircraft identification.
      2. Type aircraft if required for separation purposes.
      3. Type of instrument approach procedure and/or runway if differing from that in use.

      NOTE: The local controller has the responsibility to determine whether or not conditions are adequate for the use of ATTS data on the CTRD where a facility directive authorizes its use for the transfer of arrival data.

      • REFERENCE
      • FAA Order JO 7210.3, Para 12-2-4, Use of Modify and Quick Look Functions.
      • FAA Order JO 7210.3, Para 12-8-4, Use of STARS Quick Look Functions.
    3. Where the collocated or satellite tower has ATTS data displayed on its CTRD, the ATTS modify or quick look functions may be used to forward arrival data provided that a facility directive at the collocated tower or a letter of agreement with the satellite tower exists which outlines procedures for using ATTS for transferring this data.
    4. Forward the following information to centers:
      1. Where two or more instrument approach procedures are published for the airport, the particular procedure which an aircraft can expect or that it will be vectored toward the airport for a visual approach.
      2. Highest altitude being used by the approach control facility at the holding fix.
      3. Average time interval between successive approaches.
      4. Arrival time of aircraft over the holding fix or, if control has been transferred to you before an aircraft has reached the fix, a statement or other indication acknowledging receipt of control responsibility.
      5. Revised EFC if different by 10 minutes or more from that issued by the center.
      6. Missed approaches if they affect center operations.
      7. Information relating to an unreported or overdue aircraft.
