  • 5-11-6. APPROACH GUIDANCE TERMINATION

    1. Discontinue surveillance approach guidance when:
      1. Requested by the pilot.
      2. In your opinion, continuation of a safe approach to the MAP is questionable.
      3. The aircraft is over the MAP.
    2. Surveillance approach guidance may be discontinued when the pilot reports the runway or approach/runway lights in sight or if a “point-in-space” approach, he/she reports able to proceed to the landing area by visual reference to a prescribed surface route.
    3. When approach guidance is discontinued in accordance with subpara a and the aircraft has reported the runway or approach/runway lights in sight, advise the aircraft of its position and to proceed visually.
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • (Distance) MILE(S) FROM RUNWAY/AIRPORT/ HELIPORT,
      • or
      • OVER MISSED APPROACH POINT.
      • PROCEED VISUALLY (additional instructions/clearance as required.)
    4. When approach guidance is discontinued in accordance with subpara a above and the aircraft has not reported the runway or approach/runway lights in sight, advise the aircraft of its position and to execute a missed approach unless the runway or approach/ runway lights are in sight or, if a “point-in-space” approach, unless able to proceed visually.
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • (Distance) MILE(S) FROM RUNWAY,
      • or
      • OVER MISSED APPROACH POINT. IF RUNWAY,
      • or
      • APPROACH/RUNWAY LIGHTS NOT IN SIGHT, EXECUTE MISSED APPROACH/(missed approach instructions). (Additional instructions/clearance, as required.)
      • (Distance and direction) FROM AIRPORT/HELIPORT/ MISSED APPROACH POINT.
      • IF UNABLE TO PROCEED VISUALLY, EXECUTE MISSED APPROACH. (Additional instructions/clearance, if required.)

      NOTE: Terminal instrument approach procedures and flight inspection criteria require establishment of a MAP for each procedure including the point to which satisfactory radar guidance can be provided.
