    6-1-1. DISTANCE

    Use mileage-based (DME and/or ATD) procedures and minima only when direct pilot/controller VHF or UHF voice communications are maintained.

    6-1-2. NONRECEIPT OF POSITION REPORT

    When a position report affecting separation is not received, take action to obtain the report no later than 5 minutes after the aircraft was estimated over the fix.

    6-1-3. DUPLICATE POSITION REPORTS

    Do not require an aircraft to make the same position report to more than one facility.

    6-1-4. ADJACENT AIRPORT OPERATION

    TERMINAL

    WAKE TURBULENCE APPLICATION

    The ATC facility having control jurisdiction at adjacent airports must separate arriving or departing IFR aircraft on a course that will cross the flight path of an aircraft requiring wake turbulence separation in accordance with the following:

    1. Heavy, large, or small behind super - 3 minutes.
    2. Heavy, large, or small behind heavy - 2 minutes.
    3. Small behind B757 - 2 minutes.

    6-1-5. ARRIVAL MINIMA

    TERMINAL

    WAKE TURBULENCE APPLICATION

    1. Separate IFR aircraft landing behind an arriving aircraft to the same runway:
      1. Behind super:
        1. (a) Heavy or large - 3 minutes.
        2. (b) Small - 4 minutes.
      2. Behind heavy:
        1. (a) Heavy or large - 2 minutes.
        2. (b) Small - 3 minutes.
      3. Small behind B757 - 3 minutes.
    2. Separate IFR aircraft landing behind an arriving aircraft to a parallel runway separated by less than 2,500 feet, or a crossing runway if projected flight paths will cross:
      1. Heavy, large, or small behind super - 3 minutes.
      2. Heavy, large, or small behind heavy - 2 minutes.
      3. Small behind B757 - 2 minutes.
