  • 5-13-3. MONITOR INFORMATION

    When approaches are monitored, take the following action:

    1. Advise the pilot executing a nonprecision approach that glidepath advisories are not provided. Do this prior to the pilot beginning the final descent.
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • GLIDEPATH ADVISORIES WILL NOT BE PROVIDED.
    2. Inform the aircraft when passing the final approach fix (nonprecision approaches) or when passing the outer marker or the fix used in lieu of the outer marker (precision approaches).
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • PASSING (FIX).
    3. Advise the pilot of glidepath trend information (precision approaches) and course trend information to indicate target position and movement with respect to the elevation or azimuth cursor when the aircraft target corresponds to a position of well above/below the glidepath or well left/right of course and whenever the aircraft exceeds the radar safety limits. Repeat if no correction is observed.
      • EXAMPLE
      • Course trend information:
      • “(Ident), well right/left of P-A-R course, drifting further right/left.”
      • Glidepath trend information:
      • “(Ident), well above/below P-A-R glidepath.”
    4. If, after repeated advisories, the aircraft is observed proceeding outside the safety limits or a radical target deviation is observed, advise the aircraft if unable to proceed visually, to execute a missed approach. Issue a specific altitude and heading if a procedure other than the published missed approach is to be executed.
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • (Position with respect to course or glidepath). IF NOT VISUAL, ADVISE YOU EXECUTE MISSED APPROACH (alternative instructions).
    5. Provide monitor information until the aircraft is over the landing threshold or commences a circling approach.
