  • 5-4-9. PREARRANGED COORDINATION

    Prearranged coordination allowing aircraft under your control to enter another controller’s area of jurisdiction may only be approved provided procedures are established and published in a facility directive/LOA in accordance with FAA Order JO 7210.3, Paragraph 3-6-7, Prearranged Coordination.

    NOTE: Under no circumstances may one controller permit an aircraft to enter another’s airspace without proper coordination. Coordination can be accomplished by several means; i.e., radar handoff, automated information transfer, verbal, point-out, and by prearranged coordination procedures identified in a facility directive that clearly describe the correct application. Airspace boundaries should not be permitted to become barriers to the efficient movement of traffic. In addition, complete coordination, awareness of traffic flow, and understanding of each position’s responsibility concerning penetration of another’s airspace cannot be overemphasized.
