Flashcards in IFR AIRSPACE PROCEDURES Deck (16):
1

Route Segments

The pilot in command of an IFR flight must plan in accordance with the air route specifications and flight planning requirements

published on En-route and Area charts. (4.1)

2

Where no route specification or requirement has been published then the pilot in command may deter....

determine the route, within CTA such a route must be approved by ATC. (4.4)

3

Flight Planning Requirements

All aircraft are required to comply with flight planning requirements when operating in....

in CTA

4

CTA Clearances
IFR aircraft require clearances to operate in the following airspace

A,C,D,E

5

Separation in CTA
Class A:


Only IFR present and separated by ATC

6

Class C:

IFR and VFR present, IFR separated from IFR and

VFR by ATC

7

Class D:

IFR and VFR present, IFR separated from IFR and VFR Class E:

by ATC procedurally.


IFR and VFR present, IFR separated from IFR and known VFR as much as possible.

8

RADAR Control Services

RADAR control services only exist within controlled airspace after an aircraft has been

identified.

9


If the word “visual” is used in conjunction with a vector or clearance then it is assumed the pilot will take over responsibility for

terrain and or traffic separation.

OCTA OPERATIONS

OCTA OPERATIONS

11

Selection of Levels
.
IFR aircraft must plan in accordance with the table

of cruising levels (IFR).

12

If an IFR aircraft is unable to maintain a standard cruising level than it may cruise at a non-standard level provided that;

(a) ATS is notified of the intended change of level; and

(b) if conflict occurs with an aircraft maintaining the correct standard level than the non-standard aircraft must give way by changing heading or altitude as required.

13

REPORTING
Except when RADAR identified an IFR aircraft must make position reports in all airspace

at the required intervals/positions.

14

The pilot in command of an IFR flight must notify to ATS any intention to amend route, deviate from track or change level with sufficient

time for ATS to respond with traffic.

15

Traffic Information
In class G airspace (OCTA) an IFR aircraft will be provided

with a traffic information service only

No separation will be provided.

16

Within RADAR coverage, distance, bearing and altitude information may be provided by ATS

to be used for sighting or avoidance.

Note: Only KNOWN or OBSERVED traffic can be issued by ATS, this means there could be unidentified, unknown traffic in the vicinity. Do not forget to see and avoid.
