  • 5-10-14. FINAL APPROACH ABNORMALITIES

    Instruct the aircraft if runway environment not in sight, execute a missed approach if previously given; or climb to or maintain a specified altitude and fly a specified course whenever the completion of a safe approach is questionable because one or more of the following conditions exists. The conditions in subparas a, b, and c do not apply after the aircraft passes decision height on a PAR approach.

    • EXAMPLE
    • Typical reasons for issuing missed approach instructions:
    • “Radar contact lost.”
    • “Too high/low for safe approach.”
    • “Too far right/left for safe approach.”
    1. Safety limits are exceeded or radical target deviations are observed.
    2. Position or identification of the aircraft is in doubt.
    3. Radar contact is lost or a malfunctioning radar is suspected.
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • (Reason) IF RUNWAY/APPROACH LIGHTS/RUNWAY LIGHTS NOT IN SIGHT, EXECUTE MISSED APPROACH/(alternative instructions).

      NOTE: If the pilot requests, approval may be granted to proceed with the approach via ILS or another navigational aid/approach aid.

    4. Airport conditions or traffic preclude approach completion.
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • EXECUTE MISSED APPROACH/(alternative instructions), (reason).
