  • 10-2-17. EMERGENCY OBSTRUCTION VIDEO MAP (EOVM)

    1. The EOVM is intended to facilitate advisory service to an aircraft in an emergency situation wherein an appropriate terrain/obstacle clearance minimum altitude cannot be maintained. It must only be used and the service provided under the following conditions:
      1. The pilot has declared an emergency, or
      2. The controller has determined that an emergency condition exists or is imminent because of the pilot’s inability to maintain an appropriate terrain/obstacle clearance minimum altitude.

        NOTE: Appropriate terrain/obstacle clearance minimum altitudes may be defined as Minimum IFR Altitude (MIA), Minimum En Route Altitude (MEA), Minimum Obstruction Clearance Altitude (MOCA), or Minimum Vectoring Altitude (MVA).

    2. When providing emergency vectoring service, the controller must advise the pilot that any headings issued are emergency advisories intended only to direct the aircraft toward and over an area of lower terrain/obstacle elevation.

      NOTE: Altitudes and obstructions depicted on the EOVM are the actual altitudes and locations of the obstacle/terrain and contain no lateral or vertical buffers for obstruction clearance.
