  • 5-10-15. MILITARY SINGLE FREQUENCY APPROACHES

    1. Utilize single frequency approach procedures as contained in a letter of agreement.
    2. Do not require a frequency change from aircraft on a single frequency approach after the approach has begun unless:
      1. Landing or low approach has been completed.
      2. The aircraft is in visual flight rules (VFR) conditions during daylight hours.
      3. The pilot requests the frequency change.
      4. An emergency situation exists.
      5. The aircraft is cleared for a visual approach.
      6. The pilot cancels instrument flight rules (IFR).
    3. Accomplish the following steps to complete communications transfer on single frequency approaches after completion of a handoff:
      1. Transferring controller: Position transmitter selectors to preclude further transmissions on the special use frequencies.
      2. Receiving controller: Position transmitter and receiver selectors to enable communications on the special use frequencies.
      3. Do not require or expect the flight to check on frequency unless an actual frequency change is transmitted to the pilot.
