  • 5-10-12. LOW APPROACH AND TOUCH-AND-GO

    Before an aircraft which plans to execute a low approach or touch-and-go begins final descent, issue appropriate departure instructions to be followed upon completion of the approach. Climb-out instructions must include a specific heading and altitude except when the aircraft will maintain VFR and contact the tower.

    • PHRASEOLOGY
    • AFTER COMPLETING LOW APPROACH/TOUCH AND GO:
    • CLIMB AND MAINTAIN (altitude).
    • TURN (right or left) HEADING (degrees)/FLY RUNWAY HEADING,
    • or
    • MAINTAIN VFR, CONTACT TOWER,
    • or
    • (other instructions as appropriate).

    NOTE: This may be omitted after the first approach if instructions remain the same.
