Provide air traffic control services in the Pacific ICAO Region with the procedures and minima contained in this section except when noted otherwise.
Provide vertical separation in accordance with Chapter 4, IFR, Section 5, Altitude Assignment and Verification.
In accordance with Chapter 8, Offshore/Oceanic Procedures, Section 3, Longitudinal Separation, apply the following:
NOTE: Same identical tracks are where the angular difference is zero degrees.
NOTE: ATOP is designed to check for the above criteria prior to allowing the minima to be provided.
|Standard||RNP||RCP||RSP||Maximum ADS-C Periodic Reporting Interval|
|50 NM||10||240||180||27 minutes|
|50 NM||4||240||180||32 minutes|
|30 NM||4||240||180||10 minutes|
NOTE: ATOP has been designed to check for the above criteria prior to allowing the minima to be provided.
NOTE: When same track aircraft are at, or are expected to reduce to, the minima, speed control techniques should be applied in order to maintain the required separation.
Apply the following DME/RNAV minima in Control 1234H, Control 1487H and the Norton Sound High Control areas to turbojet aircraft established on or transitioning to the North Pacific (NOPAC) Route System.
In accordance with Chapter 8, Offshore/Oceanic Procedures, Section 4, Lateral Separation, apply the following:
Aircraft must request an ATC clearance to deviate. Since aircraft will not fly into known areas of weather, weather deviation requests should take priority over routine requests. If there is no traffic in the horizontal dimension, ATC must issue clearance to deviate from track; or if there is conflicting traffic in the horizontal dimension, ATC separates aircraft by establishing vertical separation. If there is conflicting traffic and ATC is unable to establish approved separation, ATC must:
